The Emerald Forest project, just outside Yekaterinburg, Russia, will comprise 13 residential towers of differing heights (the first tower is 18-floors high) each housing 96-127 modern apartment units. Underground parking for residents will also be included in the project. Owned by Urals Mining & Metallurgical Company (UGMK), one of Russia’s largest metals production company, the development will also include the construction of new schools and a shopping mall with retails stores, restaurants, a food court, and entertainment venues.
PENETRON ADMIX was specified for the concrete mix used in the foundation slabs and below-grade retaining walls that house the two-level parking garage and basement under all three buildings – up to almost 5 m (16 feet) below ground level. PENEBAR SW, a swellable waterstop, was used to seal construction joints. PENECRETE MORTAR was applied as a repair grout for tie-holes, pipe-holes and any cracks larger than 0.5mm (1/51”) and, in a final step, a coat of PENETRON, a topical crystalline material, was applied to any exposed concrete surfaces.
