Projects Protected by Contego Intumescent

We are proud to share a couple of projects that have used Contego intumescent paint to protect structural steel against fire.
Winnipeg Soccer Stadium protected by Contego intumescent

Investors Group Field, Winnipeg

Fireproofing the steel in the Winnipeg Soccer Stadium with Contego allowed for a thin coat that is paper smooth; so thin and so smooth that, even after being top coated, there’s no clue the steel has been treated.  The application work was performed by Canadian Thermal.

Investors Group Field, the stunning stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, which opened in 2013, is located on the University of Manitoba campus next to University Stadium.  It is home to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League, University of Manitoba Bisons football team and the Winnipeg Rifles (CJFL). The stadium will be one of the venues for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, hosted by Canada.  The stadium has a capacity of 33,422 (partially covered). The stadium contains a corrugated metal roof, restaurant, 52 suites and other amenities.

You should also take a look at the building that is bringing a whole new energy to downtown St John’s, Newfoundland. While architecturally designed to carry on long-standing heritage charm, III Fifty One incorporates the best of today’s newest technologies, including the first to be heated and cooled by seawater. This stunning new development includes an innovative six-story, 168,000-square-foot office tower above prime retail and commercial space, and a 445-car parking area, including 245 public parking spaces.  III Fifty One Water Street has over 30,000 Square feet of Structural Steel beams, columns, and decking protected with Contego High Solids Formula intumescent paint, designed to shield against the most severe cold temperatures and defend against any type of precipitation.  It was the ideal solution for the seasons on the St. John’s, NL Pacific Ocean harbor front.
