Edgewater Train Station
Architecturally striking, the Edgewater Train Station Car Park in WA is a re-imagination of the design possibilities of practical public spaces.
The $26 million project boasts a bold multi-coloured facade that's highly visible from the Mitchell Freeway. More than 300 tonnes of vertical steel beams enclose the structure, creating a spectacular canvas for the rainbow of hues.
While this clever design discourages vandalism, an anti-graffiti finish was a top priority. Long-term corrosion protection, colour performance and UV resilience were also on the must-have list. As always, the flagship three coat system from Dulux Protective Coatings was up to the task. Zincanode 402 primer protects against galvanic corrosion, Duremax GPE creates a robust barrier and Weathermax HBR provides a saturation of colour with superior gloss retention.
The coatings were spray applied by two expert blast and paint applicators, Kaefer Novacoat and Fero Blast. With the large amount of steel involved, touch ups were required on site to ensure a flawless finish.
The Public Transport Authority is thrilled with the result and so are we. We’re confident these enduring colours will continue to sparkle in the WA sun for many decades to come.
