Once again PaintAccess is out and about visiting our tradie mates on site, having a look at what they’re working on, and checking out the great products they are using to deliver outstanding results for clients.
Today we’re at South Maroubra Beach where experienced painter Matt, from Timeframe Group, has been tasked with repairing, repainting and refreshing the South Maroubra Surf Club.
We're so excited about this particular painting job that when Matt offered to show us around the site, we asked if we could film it and make it available to others. He agreed and so here it is:
The South Maroubra Surf Club
The Maroubra SLSC is an iconic building in Maroubra South, recognised around the world. During summer, especially on public holidays, the volunteer lifesavers of South Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club watch over beach goers at South Maroubra Beach and ensure it is a safe beach for swimming. The combination of a popular beach, desirable beach location, proximity to Sydney CBD, great surf conditions, and the club's diligent volunteer organisation mean that the surf club is in constant use.
The rest of the year, Maroubra Beach is patrolled by the Randwick City Council Lifeguard team but the South Maroubra SLSC remains an important community venue. It is indicative of their talent and reputation that the Timeframe Group have been given responsibility for repairing and painting this building in its iconic Australian beach setting.
The project brief
Today we’re getting a brief from Matt about what is required for this high-profile project. From PPE and safety considerations through to the complexities of picking paint that will last in the surf cub’s salt-sprayed environment. In between we talk pressure washing, “drummy” rendering, and the challenge of painting security bars over windows. Matt tells us about the building’s access ramps, and safety considerations for a public building. That includes safety tape around areas where elevated work platforms are in use. In this case, multiple work platforms are being used to facilitate the application of paint coatings with an airless paint sprayer in hard-to-reach areas.
For Matt, using protective coatings for building components that aren't stainless steel is critically important to ensure corrosion protection. Matt points out structural steel supports where he has used protective paint systems for corrosion prevention and enhanced corrosion resistance. Achieving long-term corrosion protection is critically important for buildings in coastal environments and it is front-and-centre for the Timeframe Group team.
The same is true for rendered surfaces and Matt points out specific areas where the building structure had been compromised by direct contact with sea air, general wear-and-tear, and age. He explains the condition of the walls before the Timeframe Group team arrived, and says before-and-after photos are available on the company’s Instagram, along with a range of other photos from the site. The team repaired damaged render on multiple walls, including around windows, and the underside of balconies and other covered areas.
The whole building has been painted with Taubmans exterior paints in an attractive light and dark grey colour palette. To pick a new colour palette for this iconic building, the team organised colour consultants to provide a colour consultation service, and the results are impressive. The new modern paint colours make the building stand out in an already beautiful coastal setting.
