A project for Saudi Aramco ,Designed by Zaha Hadid , Executed by Drake and Scull is the first LEED Platinum in the region. KAPSARC’s main building is a crystalline structure composed of modular six-sided cells with many connections between them, as well as a series of shaded outdoor spaces, gardens, and underground tunnels. Nearby, a modern library and conference center will aid in the center’s quest to become a preeminent energy research center.
USG Boral’s patented SHEETROCK® Tuff-Hide™ Primer-Surfacer – a vinyl-acrylic latex based coating designed for interior application over new plasterboard and SHEETROCK® surfaces – was used on ceilings and walls in the high profile KAPSARC project in Riyadh, KSA. Tuff-Hide™ can be applied by roller or spray application. Spray application is recommended for larger surfaces, such as the KASARC project. Tuff-Hide™ skims and primes in one single application compared to the traditional method of skim coating with a joint compound followed by a coat of primer. It dries to a hard, abrasion-resistant surface and can be sanded to achieve a smoother finish. For normal applications, standard paints can be used over Tuff-Hide™. For areas requiring greater durability and toughness, waterborne enamels are recommended for finish coats.
