The £125 million construction has become the city’s latest landmark, and will become the fifth busiest arena in Europe.
Isocrete Project Management, Flowcrete's full service project management team, dealt directly with the main contractor from initial project consultation through to warranty and aftercare.
Flowfast Quartz, Flowcrete UK’s rapid installation MMA acrylic resin flooring solution, was installed across 8,500 m² of the Main Bowl Arena, creating a hard wearing and decorative finish able to withstand heavy traffic, impacts and continuous wear.
This product is ideal for commercial sites that want to speed up constructions that would otherwise incur weeks or months of problematic downtime whilst the floor cured. In comparison Flowfast Quartz can be trafficable in as little as two hours, meaning that follow on work can begin again the same day the floor is laid.
This was a particular asset for The SSE Hydro project, as high-profile concerts and sporting events had already been booked, meaning that a fast construction turn around, without any delays, was essential.
Flowcrete’s seamless terrazzo system Mondéco Classic was also applied over 511 m² of the arena. Containing 50% recycled glass aggregate, this solution creates a hard wearing, eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing finish. This system is a popular choice for commercial developments like The SSE Hydro arena, as it is available in a wide variety of colours and aggregates.
