Flowcrete Wins Flooring Face-off to Land EnCana Events Centre Project

Flowcrete Americas has played a starring role at one of Canada’s most popular entertainment venues, the EnCana Events Centre in Dawson Creek, B.C.

Opened in Spring 2008 as part of the South Peace Community Multiplex, the EnCana Events Centre has gone on to have a significant impact on the community and surrounding Peace Region and has been instrumental in placing the small city of Dawson Creek on the nation’s map for sporting events and live entertainment.

After six years in operation and owing to significant shrinkage cracks throughout the existing floor slab, the summer months provided an opportunity to resurface the centre’s concourse. Any further delay to resurfacing work carried the risk of cleaning fluids and spilled drinks penetrating the re-bar, leading to corrosion and early onset slab failure.

A semi-flexible hybrid flooring system was custom designed for the project to compensate for any flexing movements in the suspended slab. Combining Flowcrete Americas’ decorative, self-level and fast-cure Flowfast Flakes system, installed at 1/8”, with a semiflexible urethane body coat and semi-flexible top coat, the new system has performed incredibly well to date with not one single crack telegraphing through.

methyl methacrylate (MMA) system, Flowfast Flakes cures just 60 minutes following application and is ideally suited to renovation or resurfacing projects on account of its ability to minimize downtime within live trading spaces.

Flowfast Flakes can be installed on a wide range of substrates, is flow applied and hand broadcast with a mix of pigmented vinyl flakes and is ideal for heavily trafficked concourse areas, delivering a decorative, non-slip and wear resistant finish underfoot.
