Opulent Optus Stadium. Recipient of several prestigious awards, the magnificent structure of Optus stadium is one more in Cementaid’s successful list of impressive projects. Few of the awards bagged by this mesmerizing structure are • The Stadium Business Design & Development Awards 2018 – Project of the Year • Australian Institute of Architects’ 2018 National Architecture Awards • Colorbond® Award For Steel Architecture • Public Architecture Award • 2018 National Landscape Architecture Awards • Urban Design Award of Excellence • Play Spaces Award of Excellence • 2018 Master Builders – Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards • 2018 Bankwest Best Project • Best Public Use Building • Best Government Building – Over $100,000,000 • Construction on a Challenging Site • Best Civil Engineering Works (Perth Stadium Station) Cementaid Driwal P6 was specified and used to protect all externally exposed concrete and specialist masonry surfaces above 2 metres in height from the deleterious effects of chloride penetration. Areas below 2 metres in height were treated with Cementaid GraffeX to protect surfaces from risk of graffiti damage and general build-up of dirt and grime. Two varieties of Grit Blasted and High Temperature Heat Treated (exploded surface) Granite tiles were imported for the project and GraffeX is relied on to protect the external walls of this stadium; a time-proven, effective protection, needed to keep this magnificent structure looking stunning.
