Ryman Healthcare design, build and operate healthcare facilities. The facility in the Melbourne suburb of Wheelers Hill features a single level basement, where all services are located.
Ryman required the provision of basement tanking sheet membrane system capable of providing intrinsic waterproofing, without reliance upon backfill compression. Watertight integrity of the basement is of paramount importance to the overall operating capability of the healthcare centre.
In addition to waterproofing of the slab on ground, the waterproofing system must also be supplied with precast concrete panels. Watertight integrity between both applications had to be ensured.
SikaProof® A12 fully bonded FPO [flexible polyolefin] waterproofing membrane was selected by Ryman Healthcare. Membrane was supplied to the precast panel fabricator who detailed the membrane into the casting beds.
This application procedure provided precast panels with a clean and precise waterproofing membrane, which provided for fast and simple connections on-site.
Total Seal installed the SikaProof A12 membrane on-site prior to pouring of the basement slab. Total Seal also provided the watertight seal between the pre-cast panels once installed on-site, as well as completed detailing of the basement slab membrane to the pre-cast panel membrane.
