SystemARDEX specified for high end Government project

Optus Stadium, Perth

ARDEX provided a solution for 30,000 square metres of tiling that required a quick turnaround

Optus Stadium, Perth

BUILDER: Brookfield Multiplex

A high-profile Government project located in Perth, Western Australia, the new Optus Stadium is a 60,000-seat venue that hosts a variety of sports (Australian Rules, Rugby League and Soccer, through to international and domestic cricket) and entertainment/concerts.

Unique Elements
With such a large stadium, 30,000 square metres of tiling was to be completed on a strict deadline. There were multiple areas that needed to be tiled and/or waterproofed, ranging from wet area floors and walls, training and recovery facilities, kitchens and food prep, bars in executive lounges/boxes, lift lobbies and main foyer areas. Being a Government backed project, the finished product also needed to reflect a high standard.

With indoor and outdoor, and wet and dry areas to be tiled and waterproofed, the builders required a specification in which products could perform in a variety of conditions and uses as well as speed up and ease the process of installation in order to meet that deadline.

ARDEX X 10 and X 18 wall and floor tile adhesive were chosen due to their flexible and non-slump properties. ARDEX X 18 was ideal for the larger and heavier tiles. ARDEX X 10, suitable for wet areas, contains specially developed fibres that add strength to the tiled area, ensuring a strong and consistent finish.

ARDEX WPM 002 two-part undertile waterproofing membrane was specified due to its rapid drying time. Tiling could commence 16-24 hours after application which helped ensure a quick turnaround to meet the strict deadline.
