A Finer Aggregate Concrete for the Adelaide Convention Centre
Panorama Concrete laid the exposed aggregate concrete for the Adelaide Convention Centre’s pedestrian areas including the pathway over the railway bridge, in 2016.
The Adelaide Convention Centre has opened Adelaide to global conferences and events, providing facilities that are world class.
It was completed in August 2017, after nine years in development and in time for the 68th International Astronautical Congress in September 2017, which was one of the largest conferences ever held in Adelaide.
The Convention Centre features the Skyway, a state-of-the-art elevated glass walkway that links the Centre’s three buildings with panoramic views of the River Torrens and Riverbank precinct.
The aggregate concrete was laid in 2016 and two years on, it is still looking as new
We used the Platinum Milled finish exposed aggregate in a sandstone colour with a sealer to finish.
The Milled finish is a sleek, and sophisticated look crafted with very fine exposures of stone that are smooth to walk on and can be saw-cut to look like pavers, without the high maintenance that pavers require. The sealer has prevented stains and marks so the aggregate concrete still looks like new. The result is a low profile, smooth finish ideal for pedestrian high traffic areas.
We used this same aggregate concrete finish for the new Plaza area at Adelaide Airport. The Airport project called for a much smoother finish than traditional exposed aggregate. They needed very little stone showing and an aggregate that was tough enough to withstand heavy suitcases being dragged over the surface. The Convention Centre’s needs were similar, high traffic areas with suitcases and equipment being wheeled over the surface.
