From the Resene News – issue Summer 2000
Resene scores at the stadium - Westpac Trust Stadium
Futuristic in appearance, Wellington's $121 million sporting complex - the WestpacTrust Stadium opened its doors on time and on budget..
Located close to Wellington's waterfront at the fringe of the central business district, the stadium offers top sport and entertainment.
Painting contractors Kensington & Associates Ltd have applied enormous quantities of Resene paints to cover the 48,000 sq.m complex. Up to 14 Painting Contractors worked with Kensington & Associates partner Gary Nelson and site foreman Rex Ewers for ten months with stunning results.
The use of Resene Minsk, a vibrant purple, featured at the main entrance to this imposing metal complex is a good indication of the responsibility accorded to colour as a design element. This purple tongue wall, punctuated with screws, continues into the interior and up five levels to the corporate boxes and members lounges.
Inside, primary colours have been skillfully used to split the plan into four quadrants - Resene Milano Red, Resene Limeade, Resene Moon Yellow and Resene Mariner - to help people orientate themselves around the complex.
Interior concrete walls have been coated in Resene Lumbersider while in the wet areas Resene Lustacryl Semi-Gloss Waterbased Enamel has been specified. Resene Lumbersider was also used as a topcoat in the corporate boxes and VIP areas and a ten-year waterproofing guarantee has been granted for the paint system specified for the tongue wall - Resene Quick Dry followed by three coats of Resene X-200 weathertight membrane and finished in Resene Multishield+ Glaze.
