From the Resene News – issue 4/2002
Conference theme - Palmerston North Convention Centre
The Palmerston North Convention Centre in Main Street, Palmerston North has recently undergone a successful transition from monotone to multicolour. The repainting project necessitated a full interior and exterior repaint including fresh paintwork for the new extension.
New and existing precast exterior concrete were weathertight proofed using Resene X-200 weathertight membrane and coated using Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic and the heavily textured Resene Resitex Coarse. Using a palette that draws most of its inspiration from The Range collections, the lavish Resene Lusty (orange red) walls, Resene Voodoo (violet) sprayed texture, Resene Tuatara (deep green grey) exterior columns, Resene Sandstone (smoky brown) vertical roofing and touches of Resene Black Rock (blackened violet) mingle splendidly.
The Resene Zylone Sheen low sheen interior was finished in convivial orange/yellow hues of Resene Sisal (light beige), Resene Rob Roy (muddy orange yellow) and Resene Chalky (subdued yellow) to deliver the aura of warmth.
The addition of colour and well designed extensions to traditionally monotone concrete construction has instantaneously repositioned the convention centre as a modern, contemporary option for conference planners.
