The Paremoremo prison is in the final stages of completion. Our dedicated team of 10 crew led by our Project manager Bryce Deeley, have been working on a range of projects including door and window grouting, sealant application and specialist coatings. We have a support team of subbies to assist us in this complex and multi-tiered work front. The final coat of Sikafloor 315 is being applied to all walkways and corridors. The floors is abraded and scrubbed with the Clenco floor scrubber prior to this last coat to ensure a clean dust free surface.
Working closely with the Fletchers Site managers we have applied over 70m3 of Sika 212 grout, 22000Lm of non pick sealant and over 8000m2 of specialist coatings. All the cells and prison accessible areas have Sikadur 51 applied to any surface that a credit card can be hidden in.
All QA is record and uploaded via the Conqa QA platform.www.conqa.co.nz

Topcoat has been on site from November 2016, with a team of 6-8 specialist applicators. Our scope includes applying specialist Sika epoxy coatings to the cells and corridors. Due to the nature of the environment all minute cracks are sealed with a high modulus non pick sealant. The steel doors ae also grouted via pump units with Sika high strength 215 grout.
The epoxy coating programme will continue till mid late 2017.
