Bluewater stadium floor ready for the first reseal

Colac Otway Shire Council is preparing for a reseal of the Bluewater stadium floor as part of its routine maintenance program. 

Improvements will also be made to the grandstand with handrails installed on existing staircases and a bottom level of seating added which will be suitable for patrons with access requirements.

More than 10 months has passed since the floor was laid which has allowed time for the pre-coated boards to settle prior to an all-of-floor seal.

Acting CEO Robert Dobrzynski said the resealing program was part of an ongoing maintenance schedule and is based on supplier recommendation.                                                 

“The reseal is part of Council’s commitment to ensuring the quality of the floor is maintained for longevity. We expect this floor to have thousands of pairs of feet running over it during the course of its lifetime.”

Ace Flooring, the installer of the floor, has been engaged to undertake the reseal.

The works have been scheduled at a time when the stadium is in a low use period. The stadium will be closed for the works between 22 and 29 January.
