Opus House fireproofing project

Opus House Christchurch
Intumescent coating & cementitious based system
Fire Protection

About this Project

Topcoat has an extensive experience in fire protection coating systems and was the recommended applicator for the office building of Opus International (Opus House) on 12 Moorehouse Avenue, Christchurch.

The fire protection specification on this project was made up of two very different systems. The columns were pre-primed steel and the application was a standard intumescent coating applied with airless sprayers.

The second system for the beams was a cementitious product which was applied using a grout pump and specialist texture spray unit. This product and method are increasingly used with steel which does not require priming prior to coating. This is a cost effective option in cases where the steel is not exposed or does not require additional coatings.

Opus House was a significant project – a twin tower office block with five storeys – which came with the usual time restraints and a tight construction schedule. Working closely with the contractor and Altex Coatings, Topcoat was able to offer ongoing updated schedules and reports associated with each stage of the project. After the completed project was signed off Topcoat was offered another opportunity to work with the same contractor on a similar project.
