Extra protection - The Warehouse Sylvia Park

The Warehouse Sylvia Park24 hectares in south east Auckland has been earmarked for the Sylvia Park town centre making it one of the largest property developments in New Zealand. When complete the development will dwarf other centres with a massive 62,000 square metres of retail and entertainment and 45,000 square metres of office accommodation.

One of the first retailers to open its new store in the Sylvia Park precinct was The Warehouse. Complementing traditional product lines with an extensive selection of everyday grocery items under The Warehouse Extra banner, the latest large format The Warehouse is expansive.

Situated on one end of the Sylvia Park development, large tracts of The Warehouse exterior are exposed to would-be graffiti artists. The exterior tilt slab was coated in a high performance system of Resene Uracryl 404 tinted to Resene Stonewall (deep beige neutral), providing an attractive graffiti-resistant finish. If graffiti does strike, it can be easily cleaned off without affecting the surface beneath and without the need for repainting.

Recognising the risk early has enabled a cost-effective solution to be specified as the core paint system, providing benefits that will continue to pay back value years after the coating was first applied.
