Aggregate Industries’ innovative and highly-durable Watertight concrete mix proved the winning formula during the ongoing renovation of Center Parcs’ indoor water park at Sherwood Forest.
Regarded as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the family resort, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. However, since opening in 1987, the water park’s last major update was a new raft ride in 2002, which meant it was in urgent need of a revamp.
To ensure the longevity of the renovation, it was vital that the concrete used in the construction featured long-wearing water-resistant properties suitable for protecting the water park from water damage and damp. As such, the natural choice for DBM Construction, working for principal contractor SDC, was to use Aggregate Industries’ Watertight solution, a versatile range of specialised ready-mixed concrete designed to protect a structure from water ingress or to retain water within a structure.
In total, Aggregate Industries supplied 2,000m3 of custom blend Watertight, made using the BASF’s MasterLife WP 799 high performance integral waterproofing system for wet cast concrete incorporating combined waterproofing and superplasticising components.
David Crossley, Construction Director at DBM Civil Engineering, said:"I was really impressed with Aggregate Industries, which right from the start were able to meet our unique specifications using their customised Watertight solution. We look forward to working with the business again in the future.”
