Perth Train Station

Upper Level Concourse

 

Rapid Installation

Decorative Finish

 

Project:

The original floor tiles to the City of Perth train station on the upper level concourse were found to be continuously cracking and moving, and with 60,000 commuters using the concourse daily there was a requirement to make the flooring safer and able to withstand the impact of thousands of feet and bags. A product was needed that would offer hard wearing, non slip, decorative resin flooring. And it had to be able to be installed rapidly, preferably overnight, ready to cope with the next day’s commuter traffic whilst providing minimal disruption to this very busy transport hub.

 

Solution: 

Antiskid was engaged to advise on the specification of the flooring system, in conjunction with the architects. Donaldson and Warn Architects had designed one of Australia’s largest public works of art for the 2,650 square metres of ‘walk on’ artwork on the upper concourse of the Perth railway station. A new palette of colours were developed using oil painting techniques of underpainting with complimentary colours to enrich the depth. Over the underpainting, finely ground, recycled glass and stone completed the rendering.

Antiskid, with manufacturer Flowcrete and Donaldson & Warn specified the new system of Flowfast resin flooring. We were able to install a rapid curing floor system that offered fast track applications, therefore dramatically reducing program time and minimising disruption to the very busy daily commuter traffic.  Antiskid installed the multi coloured synthetic quartz at night-time and were able to have the floor ready for traffic  around 90 minutes from installation.

Working with all stakeholders utilising excellent planning and management the entire project was completed according to design and specification and the station was able to maintain normal operations throughout.
