Undergoing recent renovations and re-developments, Penetron was pleased to be part of the extension of the underground car park and the upgrade of the tennis courts and gardens. Holcim Concrete suggested Penetron Admix be used instead of any other alternatives in the market.
Penetron Admix was selected as a viable system to waterproof and provide durability to 700m3 of 40Mpa concrete. New concrete was poured up to existing concrete in 2 pours to the roof slab of the car park. The tennis courts and new landscaping with 300mm of soil & turf were to go on top.
Head contractor Co-Wyn is extremely happy with the end result as the Penetron guarantee eliminated the requirement for further waterproofing under the landscaping and asphalt.
