The Telecom Exchange in Archilles Avenue, Nelson is a hive of activity. Ironically, the primary façade colour used in its recent repaint was a yellow hue, somewhat reminiscent of a worker bee environment.
The exterior paint system was a combination of Resene Sonyx 101 semi-gloss acrylic on the plaster walls, Resene Hi-Glo Roof Acrylic tinted to match COLORSTEEL® Titania on the roof, and Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic tinted to Resene Copper on the brickwork. The finishing touches on the metal window joinery were made using Resene Enamacryl gloss waterbased enamel in the colour Resene Casal, restoring the previously bland front window area to the feature area the original building designer intended it to be.
