Shiny as new - Hamilton East Medical Centre

The Hamilton East Medical Centre in Grey Street, Hamilton looks as good as the first day it was painted, even though that day was almost 18 months ago.

Hamilton East Medical Centre

Resene Thixalon 5 tinted to Resene Bison Hide (light grey brown) was applied to all titan board wall faces textured to a light stucco finish protected by a glaze coat of Resene F-10 solventborne clear glaze. The clear glaze coat offers an additional buffer coat to protect the textured coating against the weather together with a smoother consistent finish film leaving an easier to clean and maintain surface.

A tonal colour contrast was achieved by applying Resene Thixalon 5 tinted to Resene Napa (grey beige) to titan board wall and roof soffits and overcoating the complete system in Resene F-10 Glaze. To complete the exterior faÁade, steelwork was treated to a special colour match to silver dazzle joinery.

With the F-10 Glaze acting as a durability booster shot, this medical centre won't need a check-up until well into the future.
