Gymnasium exterior at St Dominic's College in HendersonGame on - St Dominic's College gymnasium

A new gymnasium has joined the facilities offered to students at St Dominic's College in Henderson, improving access to sports and recreational activities. St Dominic's is an integrated Catholic secondary school for 850 girls from Years 7-13 founded by the Dominican Sisters in 1952, with education founded on the Gospel values of the Catholic faith tapping into the Dominicans' 800 year old tradition of service to education.

The new gymnasium is a modern complex clad in a blend of Titan board, Linea weatherboard and precast concrete finished in Environmental Choice approved Resene Lumbersider waterborne satin tinted to Resene Lemon Grass (smoky grey green), Resene Sea Fog (greyed white) and Resene Half Tea (complex neutral) with steelwork and soffits in Resene Sea Fog.


Gymnasium interior at St Dominic's College in Henderson

The neutral palette outside makes way to a mix of bright and light on the interior, with predominantly Resene Quarter Tea (muted beige) walls and Resene Black White (grey white) ceilings joined by accents of Resene Whizz Bang and Resene Sushi, all finished in Environmental Choice approved Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel. Concrete floors in storage areas are finished in Resene Aquapoxy tinted to Resene Delta (warm ochre grey) and this same hue also features on exposed steelwork tinted into Resene Uracryl. Completing the ensemble Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Sea Fog provides an easy clean option in the bathroom and kitchen areas.

The high quality application of the paint finish is testament to the careful attention to detail that was applied to all elements of this project, keeping the contractors busy scheduling in new referrals they have received as a result, while students focus on giving the new building a workout.
