Sustainable timber used in the Bentleigh Secondary College Meditation and Indigenous Cultural Centre has had various Wattyl timber finishes and coatings used to protect it.

Designed by dwp|suters, timber made up 85 per cent of the surfaces in the building, which meant sustainability of the timber treatments and coatings were essential.

All of the Wattyl timber finishes were water-based.

Blackbutt timber flooring was coated in Estapol Flooring Water-Based Clear, while the internal timber walls, doors and window reveals used the Estapol Interior Water-Based Xtra Clear.

The internal curved plywood wall panels were coated in Craftsman Pigmented Stain in white.

Weathergard Deck Oil was used to coat the external timber deck, walkways and stairs.
