The Mount Stewart Centennial Memorial under went a make-over in August which saw the structure brought back to its original state of yesteryear.

Resene Construction Systems were engaged to provide the products to upgrade the structure and enhance its over-all appearance

The memorial required a total re-plaster in which Resene Construction Systems used their range of mineral based finishes to match those of the original plaster coatings. The top coats of Resene Limelock and Resene Lumbersider were then applied to enhance the over-all look of the memorial and will provide a durable and maintainable finish for many years to come.

The works were completed by Central Plastering Ltd with over 30 years experience in the industry. Steve Harley has a team of skilled Licensed Building Practitioner Plasterers and they enjoyed being a part of the project.

Shannon Quirke form the Manawatu District Council who approached Resene about the work was amazed at the transformation the memorial had under-taken and was thrilled with the end result.

In 2010 the Palmerston North City Council under-took a major up-grade of the old facility, and as part of this up-grade a re-clad of the exterior envelope was required.

Dennis of Structon Architects Ltd required a exterior cladding that would “stand the test of time” and provide a hard wearing monolithic cladding. Resene Construction Systems, Integra LWC Facade System was selected for the project and in conjunction with Rockcote Systems premium Classico, pre-coloured plaster finishes to provide a hard wearing finish.

The exterior facade was installed and plastered by Central Plastering ltd. Steve Harley – Director of Central Plastering employees 6 staff and has over 30 years experience in the plastering industry.

This is a project designed by ‘Design House Architecture’ in Hamilton which has been entered in the upcoming 2013 ADNZ awards.

Graphex was used upstairs for it’s lightweight properties, and easy installation over difficult roof area’s. Also the insulation value.

The Integra LWC Facade System was used downstairs due to it’s robustness, which would be needed on the first floor in a childcare centre. Also the ability to have the choice of 20mm or 40mm cavity systems, both certified by BRANZ meant the cavity would line up with the Hinuera stone Cladding as well with no tricky flashing details required.

Originally this existing building was to be wall papered. Milano was used to achieve a zero spread of flame decorative finish. This ended up being a cost saving to the owners as well.

Milano uses Italian Marble Sands, commonly referred to as Polished Plaster or Venetian Stucco, it is hand applied and built up in layers, this is a bespoke texture finish. It has a Polished Reflective quality when viewed at different angles.
