With ever-increasing land prices in cities and planning restrictions on city expansion, basements are becoming a must for almost every new office building, using Cementaid Everdure CALTITE system
However, many of these are redevelopments of existing office buildings or new buildings in very constricted sites. This is a real challenge when it comes to effective waterproofing, especially as every square foot of useable and lettable space adds to the value of the structure.
Cementaid Everdure CALTITE system: Hydrophobic and Pore-blocking Ingredient (HPI) for membrane-free, truly waterproof structural concrete.
Whether its Palestra, the Point Paddington, St Catherine’s House, the Villiers Isle of Man, the Tesco Northern Ireland office at Clarendon Dock, Belfast, or DSS Waterview Park, Everdure Caltite in the UK has been used in the waterproofing of over 500 office buildings in the last 20 years.
The Caltite waterproof concrete system is a time-proven, practical system that produces damp-proof, highly durable concrete which can be used either as a standalone system or incorporated as part of a dual system when required.
Caltite has a successful track record of over 60 years helping designers, developers and owners waterproof and protect concrete structures, even under the most aggressive conditions.
