Britton Timbers has played a major role in the floor renovation projects
at two major sports stadiums in Melbourne.
The two signature projects were executed by flooring specialists Rutty
& Breacher of Watsonia, Melbourne and included the Dandenong Rangers Sports
Stadium Show Court and the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre at Albert Park.
Britton's Tasmanian Oak (Messmate) was used in both projects to meet the
requirements for top class finishing and the most hard-wearing surface
available in the market.
Managing Director Ken Breacher recalled that his company had laid the
original Dandenong Stadium floor in 1982, and was called in to update it about
three years ago. Ken adds that they used a different method for the impressive
Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre Show Court, installing a new oak floor over
the top of the old surface. The court had withstood heavy equipment over a long
period of time, and laying a new floor over the existing one was a practical
and cost-effective solution.
Rutty & Breacher has partnered with Britton Timbers on a number of
significant projects including the Whyalla Basketball Stadium where three
courts were repaired.
