UQ – Advanced Engineering Building
Multiblast were engaged by Watpac Construction Ltd to carry out the installation of all the Epoxy Flooring, and Polished Concrete works required in the new ‘state of the art’ Advanced Engineering Building’ at the University of Queensland’s St. Lucia campus.
Working closely with the principal builder, the Multiblast team was contracted to deliver the flooring solutions for the innovative structure, consisting of over 6,000 sq.m of epoxy flooring, and over 2,000 sq.m of polished concrete. The unique multi-purpose building was set to revolutionise learning and research, offering educational facilities for structural, civil, materials and hydraulics engineering students across eight stories. In keeping with the Green Star design, we applied HYCHEM WE500, an innovative water-based epoxy flooring system. The pigmented, 4mm self-leveling coating has a ‘matt’ finish, is very low odor and very low VOC (volatile organic compound).
Work commenced on the high-profile project in mid-September, 2012, and Multiblast completed all works within Watpac’s scheduled time-frame, closing out contract works in early 2013.
