For this project, we tasked our design team to come with the best waterproofing strategy to protect this prestigious structure from water ingress.
In this project ,we encountered a high water table level and significant temporary works.
Secant piles were installed around the perimeter of the site between the existing piles. The new sub basement and lower ground floor were constructed inside the piled walls on all sides lined with a water-excluding RASCOtank external type B system and propped at the ground floor and basement levels by the reinforced concrete construction.
The Primary solution for waterproofing this structure was the RASCOtank system which are cast and set during concreting to control crack shrinkage and subsequent injected with acrylic grout which will guarantee prevention of any water ingress from entering the structure.
