Caloundra Events Centre gets a ROCKCOTE facelift

A more contemporary look than brick
The project covered 3400 square metres
BEFORE: the original brown brick exterior
IN PROGRESS: old brick and Quick Render coat
AFTER: with the refurbishment almost complete

The transformation of The Events Centre, Caloundra is almost complete. The iconic brown brick building in the centre of town is undergoing a major facelift with ROCKCOTE render and paint bringing a more modern look to the venue exterior.

The performing arts and conference centre in Minchinton Street was built and opened in 1980. One of the largest local government owned centres of its type in Queensland, it houses theatres, conference facilities and meeting rooms.

The exterior upgrade is part of a major refurbishment of the venue including an overhaul of the Playhouse theatre and new seating.

But it is the exterior transformation that will really turn heads. The ROCKCOTE render and paint system covers 3400 square metres of surface area, bringing a fresh contemporary look that is more consistent Caloundra’s coastal destination vibe.

In a story announcing the project on The Events Centre website, Chairman, Councilllor Tim O’Dwyer, said the upgrade would “not only address exterior maintenance requirements, including repairing deteriorating mortar joints, but (would) present the building with an attractive modern façade.”

The main system used on the project is ROCKCOTE Patch & Prep, followed by ROCKCOTE Quick Render Grey overcoated with two coats of ROCKCOTE Armour Matt in Pollinate and Prickly Pear colours. ROCKCOTE Solar Protect was also used on metal roof flashings.

ROCKCOTE Business Development Manager Jamie Byrne said that it was great to see Sunshine Coast Council supporting local business for a job of this size.

“The ROCKCOTE render and paint system was selected for the project as a way of supporting a local, Sunshine Coast based business. Product performance and quality of finish were also key considerations,” Jamie said.

Approximately 40 renderers and painters have been at work on the project for almost two months. Exterior work will be completed by the end of June 2017.
