Penta-Ocean Selects Xypex to Waterproof ION Orchard Project
June 27, 2010
Xypex was pleased to be selected by Penta-Ocean Construction Co. Ltd. as the specified concrete waterproofing product for another of their major construction projects: the prestigious 61,300 m2 ION Orchard retail mall in Singapore's prime retail district. The pre-requisites and demands of the construction schedule were high and delays and setbacks were to be avoided. Penta-Ocean chose Xypex with a confidence based on a lengthy history of working successfully with Xypex on many of their large projects (eg. Singapore's award-winning Esplanade Theatres on the Bay.) Xypex Admix C-1000 NF was chosen not only because it was the most reliable solution for waterproofing and protecting the critical substructure – the basement and roof concrete slabs – but, because it is blended into the concrete mix at the time of batching, it offered considerable control benefits in the overall construction scheduling process. Xypex Concentrate was used to waterproof construction joints.
