The multi-story parking station for the Sydney Adventist Hospital in Wahroonga, relieves a capacity bottle-neck. PENETRON technology was used to ensure a durable concrete structure and sealed, abrasion-resistant surfaces throughout the structure.The Sydney Adventist Hospital opened in 1903 as a Sanitarium to provide a place of healing. Since then, it has been affectionately known as the San. Now a world-class medical facility, the San offers comprehensive surgical, medical, and emergency services to more than 53,000 inpatients and 180,000 outpatients each year. A key component of the San Hospital’s redevelopment project, the new multi-deck car park provides parking for almost 900 cars. The automated parking system also provides increased space for parking and enhanced on-site security for patients, visitors, doctors and staff. “We’ve used the PENETRON System very successfully in a number of parking facilities,” notes Jozef Van Beeck, Director, PENETRON International Sales & Marketing. “It’s an optimal solution for both above- and below-ground designs, especially where there is any question of a high water table or exposure to the environment.”“Our PENESEAL FH sealer penetrates deep into surfaces and reacts with the concrete ingredients to solidify them into a harder, denser, stronger concrete,” adds Mr. Van Beeck. “This gives the concrete a higher surface abrasion resistance and compressive strength, which can be particularly important during the construction phase.” Builder: Buildcorp Concrete Supplier: Hanson Engineer: SCP Consulting PTY LTD Architect: Morris Bray Martin Ollmann Areas Treated: Penetron Admix was used to treat all concrete used in the ground floor structure and the roof slab of the multi-floor parking garage to secure impermeability of the most exposed structural elements. Penebar SW45 waterstop was used to seal the resulting construction joints in the new concrete. Peneseal FH, a clear, reactive penetrating sealer that permanently protects, preserves and strengthens concrete, was applied to all new concrete surfaces – a total area of over 20,000 m2 – for high durability.
Completed in June 2017, a new terminal brings the beloved Sydney Seaplane back to Rose Bay. PENETRON ADMIX was used in the precast elements to ensure impermeability for a structure built wholly over seawater.Roads and Maritime Services and Sydney Seaplanes have recently upgraded the seaplane facility at Lyne Park, Rose Bay, which is located less than four miles (seven km) from the downtown skyline of Sydney. The restoration and construction of the new Rose Bay Terminal were based on massive, pre-cast concrete elements built entirely over seawater. The all-new terminal overlooks the Rose Bay Wharf area and serves breakfast, oysters and prawns in the upstairs Empire Lounge. The upgrade to the Rose Bay seaplane facility brings numerous benefits to the Sydney region, including:
- Maintaining a historic site
- Improved services for seaplane customers
- Enhancing a valued tourism asset
|Australian Technology Park (ATP) – Axle. Axle was the first commercial building completed by Mirvac at South Eveleigh with CBA moving into the new workplace in 2019. The 42,500sqm building is home to 4,500 Commonwealth Bank employees and is an exemplar of modern workplaces featuring design excellence, cutting-edge technology, heritage integration, a thriving community precinct and high sustainability standards. Award-winning architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp designed Axle to break down traditional straight lines used in commercial buildings and create a unique façade. While architects, Woods Bagot, designed the interior of Axle to promote continuous learning and development to create one of CBA’s best workplaces in Australia. Axle achieved the highest sustainability standards with a 6 Star Green Star Design and As-Built v1.1 rating, and is targeting a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating and 4 Star NABERS Water rating.Builder: Mirvac Concrete Placer: Traino Concrete Supplier: Hanson Architecht: Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp|
