Centrally located on King Road in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia the nine-floor office building reserves two floors (2,840 m2/31,240 square feet) as retail space and the three below-grade floors accommodate a 226-car parking garage. The total available office space is approximately 17,200m2 (192,500-square feet).
PENETRON ADMIX was used to treat about 6,000 m3 (7,850 cubic yards) of concrete for the foundation slabs, and another 1,200 m3 (1,570 cubic yards) for the retaining walls. Around 1,620 m (5,350 feet) of PENEBAR, a swellable waterstop, was installed along construction joints to ensure a watertight seal. Before the PENETRON-ADMIX-treated concrete could be poured, there were leaks in the existing concrete that needed repairs. These leaks in the below-grade structures were initially treated with PENEPLUG, a rapid-setting compound, to quickly stop the active leaks. PENECRETE MORTAR was then used to permanently seal the cracks and finally, an application of PENETRON topical coating was sprayed over the surface of the concrete elements. Both of the project’s concrete water tanks – one for drinking water and the other for fire-fighting purposes – also received the PENETRON treatment.
