THE PEAK, STIRLING SPORTS VILLAGE

Waterproofing for swimming pools and balance tanks of a leisure centre in the largest single-phase development in the Stirling area for more than 30 years. This included the design of a project specific joint system.

 

THE CHALLENGE

To provide effective waterproofing for a 25m 6-lane swimming pool and teaching pool, within a brand new community leisure centre located next to Forthbank (Stirling Albion football stadium).

 

THE XYPEX SOLUTION

Xypex was specified by the consulting engineers for the waterproofing of the two swimming pools, along with the balance tanks.

Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was used to waterproof the concrete, whilst a project specific joint system was designed and implemented for all the construction joints, including the kicker. In addition Xypex materials were used to seal the many pipe penetrations.

Xypex Admix C Series – Below ground slabs and walls, swimming pool shells and associated water retaining structures

Xypex Concentrate – Joints between day pours

Hydroswell Bentostrip – Joints between day pours

 

THE RESULTS

Xypex products were used exclusively on the swimming pool and balance tanks, including the pipe penetrations. This allowed a single warranty to be issued for all the waterproofing elements, simplifying the certification process and ensuring clear lines of responsibility at sign-off.
