NOVOTEL, LIVERPOOL

, ,

A 12-storey hotel development with over 1400m2 of waterproofing requirements against hydrostatic pressure, close to the river Mersey.

 

THE CHALLENGE

To achieve a Grade 3 (BS8102:1990) totally dry environment, within a site close to the river Mersey, as part of Liverpool’s city centre regeneration.

 

THE XYPEX SOLUTION

The main contractor selected Xypex as a change to the original specification, due to its self-healing properties and proven track record in delivering effective waterproofing.

Xypex Admix was used to protect the power floated slabs in the plant room, car park and all insitu basement walls. Admix was also used to waterproof the sprayed concrete swimming pool shell of the hotels leisure facility. Xypex Concentrate was used in conjunction with Hydroswell Bentostrip to seal the construction joints between pours.
