Watergardens Shopping Centre: Taylors Lakes, VIC, Australia

The Watergardens Shopping Centre, located at Taylors Lakes, recently completed a major extension, including the construction of a new Level 1 carpark located directly above the retail shopping facilities.

Xypex Admix C-Series was specified by Baigents Consulting to over 4000 cubic metres of post-tensioned concrete, to provide additional waterproofing and durability integrity for the carpark.

Xypex generates a non-soluble crystalline formation deep within the pores and capillary tracts of concrete - a crystalline structure that permanently seals the concrete against the penetration of water and other liquids from any direction. Xypex Admix C-series is formulated to meet varying project and temperature conditions and complies with the requirements of AS1478.1 as a Type-SN special purpose admixture.

The project highlights the advantages that Xypex Admix C-Series can provide for concrete structures requiring enhanced durability, protection and an extended service life.

The project was built by Construction Engineering with concrete supplied by Boral Concrete.
