The Star, Sydney’s premier entertainment destination located in Darling Harbour, wanted to revitalise its parking facility as well as extend the luxurious atmosphere of its private Sovereign Room, which is reserved for high rollers and VIPs.
To achieve this, 85,000m2 of Flowcrete Australia’s specialist deck coating systems were installed across the five-storey car parking facility. The car park floor had to meet multiple strict criteria, such as not causing dust, being odour-free, easy to clean and glossy.
For the Sovereign Room’s exclusive parking zone, 11,500m² of Deckcoat EP and 1,500m² of Deckshield ID was applied in custom colours to craft a stylish and on-brand atmosphere in the by-invitation-only area. The Sovereign logo was also incorporated into the car park coating to enhance the visitor experience.
Contrasting shades of grey were used to define the parking bays and driveways, while harbour blue was used to mark out disabled spaces. Contrasting yellow and white line markings created clear pathways to help patrons safely navigate around the building. All the line marking and hatching, including the disabled bays, was completed to the Australian Standard AS/NZS 2890.6-2009.
Deckshield ID Rapide in black with contrasting yellow demarcations was installed on the ramps, critical traffic junctions and entrances. A quick curing solution was required in these areas and using Deckshield ID Rapide meant that they were trafficable just one hour after installation.
The car park was constantly operational throughout the 26-week application. To minimise inconvenience and ensure the safety of users during the refurbishment. The applicators factored traffic management into the installation plans by sectioning off different areas of the facility.
