Brooklyn Studios in Pretoria is a complex of fully furnished private studio rooms and apartments offering upmarket student living close to the University of Pretoria’s Lynnwood Road entrance. Its onsite facilities and communal spaces include a clubhouse and swimming pool, indoor gym, yoga square and green room, complemented by spacious rooms and beautiful interiors.
Through the unique Plascon 360° Partnership Pledge, a comprehensive, tailored service solution, Kansai Plascon was commissioned to undertake the task of preparing and painting this new building, in partnership with Plascon Preferred Applicator, Firstclass Projects.
All exterior and interior walls were prepared with Professional Gypsum & Plaster Primer (PP700), a primer coat for use on alkaline substrates such as cement plaster and concrete. They were then painted with two full coats of Professional Low Sheen (PEM1000), a quick-drying, non-yellowing coating which offers a smooth non-porous finish with good washability and stain resistance.
All interior and exterior mild steel was spot primed with Plascoprime 170 primer (UC170), an alkyd primer with a high zinc-phosphate content and very good corrosion resistance. This was followed by two coats of Water-based Velvaglo (VLW), with an attractive satin finish that forms a resilient barrier that is UV, peel and flake resistant.
The Plascon 360° Partnership Pledge is a complete solution, custom designed for each project. Aimed at providing peace of mind by assisting with all the coating requirements of a project, and it is backed by Plascon’s years of experience. It includes a building assessment for new and redecoration projects to determine coating needs, colour assistance, application assistance, quality management with regular site visits by Plascon representatives, a Quality Assurance guarantee and maintenance plan.
