Shop 'til you drop - Bayfair shopping complex

Bayfair Shopping Complex The Bayfair shopping complex in Mt Maunganui has been treated to a four stage extension and redevelopment programme to provide larger format stores, including an extended Countdown and new Farmers store, new parking facilities and upgraded mall options for all Bay shoppers at an estimated total building project cost of $40 million.

A sizeable project by anyone's definition, thousands of square metres of substrates were coated in the path to completion.

6,178 square metres of primarily Harditex used in the extensions were finished with a sealed Resene Jointflex jointing system, followed by Resene X-200 weathertight membrane, a textured coat of Resene Resitex Medium and a final topcoat of Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic tinted as required to fit the project colour scheme.

A further 5,166 square metres of interior and exterior concrete substrates including tilt panels, beams and columns were coated with an adhesion promoting seal coat of Resene Smooth Surface Sealer followed by Resene Thixalon 5 textured coating and a finish coat of Resene Lumbersider.

Having coated 12,000 square metres, a further 5,908 square metres of steel beams, braces and stairs required a Resene Engineered Coatings Systems specification to provide maximum protection to these rust prone areas. Steel substrates were spot primed with Resene Armourzinc 120 organic zinc rich primer, followed by a full coat of Resene Armourcote 510 high solids epoxy and a Resene Uracryl 403 acrylic polyurethane gloss topcoat.

Just to make the painting contractor's job a little more challenging, a unique wave design was applied to the exterior of the Farmers building, transforming the bland wall area into the ideal themed wall for a bayside shopping experience.
