EKO Hotel Expansion Project

Victoria Island, Lagos

Xypex was asked to help repair and protect the concrete in the basement parking garage and lift shafts of the EKO Hotel after water leakage caused damage. The basement was built below the water table and is subjected to hydrostatic pressure. The leaks were coming from the floor slab construction joints and most of the edges along the wall to floor and column to floor areas. Xypex Patch'n Plug and Concentrate were used to make these repairs.
