- Client: THE WAVE, MUSCAT SAOC
- Consultant: ATKINS
- Contractor: CARILLION ALAWI LLC
About the Project
The 10,850sqm centre, anchored by a 1,500sqm Waitrose convenience store, the first in Oman for the premium grocer chain, will include a selection of food and beverage units ranging from cafes to casual dining concepts, speciality retailers and service providers such as telecommunication and banking services.
Exterior products used and why
(1) Stoneshield Primer & Stoneshield Intermediate Coat With Stoneshield WB Glzae coat.
(2) Select Tex Primer & Select Tartaruga Roughcast as intermediate coat and Top coated with Weathercoat Ultra Matt Emulsion.
These products were chosen for their 7 year performance, with rich traditional finish and High thickness to cover maximum undulation on external surface.
Being close to the Al Mouj Marina, the exteriors were exposed to high humidity and salinity. Yet as the centrepiece of Oman's first Integrated Tourism Complex, the Retail Center needed to stand out as completely different from anything around it. Berger Paints fit the bill as the only Omani local manufacturer who could provide such a distinctive signature finish through its Weathercoat Stoneshield and Select Tartaruga range of finishes.
Berger Paints was tasked with providing technical support, as the applicators were introduced by the contractor was using the product for the first time. Berger Paints went beyond its original brief in supporting the applicator by not only providing training on product application but on HSE issues during site execution. Regular site inspection and monitoring by the company ensured perfect execution.
Build up a good rapport with Consultant (Atkins) and Contractor (Carillion Alawi).
The successful delivery of the site has resulted in Berger Paints being awarded multiple jobs. To read more please check the case on Azaiba Mall
