The New Roberto de Silva Municipal Theater is the centerpiece of an urban renewal program focused on revitalizing the area around the Via Dante Alighieri, close to the center of Rho. “The design of the new theater was conceived as a kind of ‘magic box’ that could be adapted to various activities – performances, exhibitions, or conventions – by creating a diverse range of dimensions and environments,” explains Enricomaria Gastaldo Brac, CEO & Managing Director of Penetron Italia.
A PVC waterproofing membrane system with post injection was originally specified in the construction plans. However, the installation of this system turned out to be too unwieldly and time-consuming. The local expert from Penetron Italia proposed an easier and proven waterproofing solution comprising PENETRON ADMIX to treat the concrete mix, and PENEBAR SW waterstop strips to permanently seal the resulting construction joints.
