Olympic Stadium, Stratford

Project: Olympic Stadium, Stratford

Muralplast’s Multi Surface Paint (MSP) has shown its Olympic qualities after being chosen by architects Populous and contractor Sir Robert McAlpine for the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.

 

MSP has been applied for “blacking out” purposes to hide all the high level elements in the ceiling voids in the stadium’s VIP areas, ensuring that the feature see-through floating ceilings create the right effect.

 

Different surfaces such as ducting, pipework and lagging will normally each require their own pre-treatment before primers and paints are applied. But MSP is a sustainable surface treatment with outstanding adhesive qualities providing an effective cover for all surfaces. There is no need for priming this water-based product and it is flame repellent, meeting class “O” specifications.

 

So when the painting team from our parent company S. Lucas carried out a full decorations programme at the stadium, its work on the VIP ceiling voids could be undertaken safely and swiftly. There were no health and safety issues to contend with when applying MSP and the work was carried out with great efficiency.

 

Shortly afterwards, the team moved across to the nearby Westfield Stratford City shopping centre development where MSP was applied in similar circumstances to disguise the pipework and ducting above floating ceilings.
