The 2-level basement excavation with hundreds of liters of water pumped out per hour, needed a high-performance waterproofing product. PENETRON ADMIX was used to waterproof over 2000m3 of concrete and 600m3 of shotcrete. All elevator pits, base slabs and even exposed areas on the podium and the shotcreted retaining walls were treated. Also, PENETRON, PENECRETE MORTAR and PENEPLUG were used during the previous construction stage to repair severe water leaks in the shotcrete and concrete where another admixture was used.
