Hamco Auto Shop exterior refurbishment

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — 200 Montreal Street, Christchurch

Pace Project Management was contracted in February 2010 to project manage the exterior refurbishment of the building.

Hamco Auto Shop is a prominent business in the Christchurch automotive trade. The origin of the business dates back to the early 1920s. Hamco has been in the same ownership since 1977 and has grown into a modern large consumer friendly store at its present location at 200 Montreal Street.

Pace Project Management was contracted in February 2010 to project manage the exterior refurbishment of the building. The building in question had a previously painted solid plaster exterior, but had a large number of compression cracks, from hairline to 3-4mm deep cracks, moss and mould infestation, and traffic film and dirt contamination. These issues needed to be addressed and treated before the building could be repainted effectively.

Resene was approached to conduct a thorough investigation of the current state of the exterior of the building and to provide a complete coatings specification for the refurbishment, including recommendations on products and processes to obtain optimum results.

Part of the painting contractor’s responsibilities was to ensure the paint colours matched Hamco branding and logo colours.

Precautions for site safety were taken to meet Health and Safety NZ regulations, including covered scaffolding to the exterior of the building, the installation of tiger tails to power lines to protect scaffolding and personnel on the job, and safety signage.

Colours used: Resene Half Black White, custom colours Hamco Green and Hamco Blue.

Products used: Resene Moss & Mould Killer, Resene Paint Prep and Housewash, Resene Concrete Primer, Resene Limelock, Resene Flexicover E, Resene Galvo, Resene Enamacryl, Resene Quick Dry.
