American School of Classic Studies
The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Greece, was first established in 1881. It is a renowned center for the study of the Greek antiquity, not only active in the investigation and preservation of Greece’s cultural heritage, but responsible for all American archaeological research, as well.The inauguration of the new Malcolm Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science and the expansion of the Gennadius Library, both part of the ASCSA, brought cutting-edge research technologies – including bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, archaeobotany, and zooarchaeology – to the school.
Construction on the Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Science was below the water table and the builder specified PENETRON ADMIX for 2,500 m3 of concrete for the new basement structures and elevator pits to optimize resistance to water penetration, even with hydrostatic pressure. PENEBAR SW waterstop was used to seal all construction joints. In addition, the PENETRON-enhanced crystalline slurry applied in combination with PENECRETE MORTAR took care of any final repairs.
