Jaidah Square - Corporate Headquarters
Xypex Concentrate and Patch'n Plug were used to repair and protect the three-story underground parking garage at Jaidah Square in Doha, Qatar. The building’s original traditional membrane had failed due to a high ground water table and extreme hydrostatic pressure. Xypex was successfully used to stop the leaks and the developer was very happy with Xypex’s ability to perform in critical situations.
The 70,000 m² commercial building completed on time and in 2011 Jaidah Square won Commercial Project of the Year in Qatar.

The Xypex two-coat system of Xypex Concentrate and Modified was used to waterproof and protect 37,999 m2 of potable water tanks. The largest of these tanks will take 1½ years to fill. Xypex products were also used on the cooling tower of 11,300 m2 and the sewage treatment plant of 377 m2.
Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was used to waterproof and protect the foundation raft, retaining walls, floor slab, and water tanks in the tower. Xypex Concentrate was used to coat in–between the pours, construction joints and other wet areas.
In 2012 the building received the CTBUH Skyscraper Award for the “Best Tall Building Worldwide” and is an iconic part of Doha’s skyline.
