The landmark $350 million urban development, located in the Inner West suburb of Footscray will incorporate an array of residential and commercial development, shared community spaces, cafes and facilities while showcasing a unique architectural design and sustainable living in a modern inner city environment.
Within this development was a multi-storey residential building that required a waterproofing and flooring solution for it’s multi-storey carpark structure. While one required crack bridging to protect the tenancies below, both required to be trafficable, hard-wearing, non-slip and suitable for a carpark while being aesthetically pleasing and highly UV resistant.
Brought in by the main contractor Grocon and by liasing with Able Industrial Floors, who Sika had worked closely with on previous projects such as AAMI Stadium and the MCG, Sika was able to apply it’s specially designed car park deck waterproofing system.
