Science Centre, Brisbane
INSTALLER: River City Floors, M&M Waterproofing, Tilecorp
ARCHITECT: Robin Gibson & Partners
The new Sciencentre is designed to capture the imagination and spread the message about science and technology. It also illustrates ARDEX’s range of compatible technologies.
This $9.5 billion redevelopment, which opened on 17 September 2004, is the first major facelift for the Queensland Museum in almost 20 years.
ARDEX products were used for various applications, from waterproofing, to floor levelling and tiling.
For a striking looking floor, 750 x 750 x 20mm travertine was chosen. Being larger than conventional floor tiles, these required an adhesive that would provide a solid base and stand up to the weight of the tile. Owing to the unique “non lip” characteristic, Robin Gibson & Partners specified ARDEX STS 8 (with Ardion 90).
In the rooms that were to be covered with vinyl, the floors were made smooth and level using ARDEX K 15 and Feather Finish. The RapidDry technology in ARDEX K 15 allowed the installation of vinyl after a mere 16 to 18 hours.
ARDEX WPM 002 was used in internal wet areas, and ARDEX WPM 3000X in basements to help resist water ingress.
