A significant building redevelopment project is underway at The Suter Art Gallery in Nelson, due for completion in October 2016.
In keeping with the original design features, a marriage between the historic elements of the original gallery and new contemporary features will see The Suter, New Zealand’s oldest art gallery turned into a vibrant regional arts centre for the 21st century. Design architects Jerram Tocker & Barron and Warren & Mahoney Architects opted for Connexx entrance matting as part of the new foyer due to its durability for high traffic flows. Its high absorbency inlay also ensures the original floors from 117 years ago stay clean and dry. Tredsafe AA123 with Safety White Zebron glow insert has been used on the stairs throughout the gallery and theatre in compliance with NZ Standard 1421:2001. The combination of bright white and glow in the dark makes the insert highly visible for reduced light conditions and the visually impaired. The diamond tred pattern of the insert also provides excellent anti-slip properties and is hard wearing and able to endure heavy traffic. Visit the Suter Art Gallery at 208 Bridge Street, Nelson 7010
