DBM Construction specified Aggregate Industries’ Watertight solution, which uses BASF’s MasterLife WP 799 admixture for swimming pools at the £15m revamp of Center Parcs’ indoor water park at Sherwood Forest.
As part of its facelift, the facility is being extended to include new raft rides, toddler pools, a children’s adventure cove and a high-octane Tropical Cyclone ride, complete with zero-gravity drop.
The water park, which opened in 1987 and was extended in 2002, needed a concrete that could deliver lasting water-resistance and protection from water ingress and damp, as well as high strength to withstand the stresses of the new ride.
BASF’s MasterLife WP 799 admixture contains both waterproofing and superplasticising plasticising components. BASF’s MasterSeal 910 hydroswelling waterbars and ancillary jointing components completed the solution.
In total, Aggregate Industries supplied over 2,000m3 of custom-blend Watertight, providing reduced water and air permeability and reduced water penetration and absorption, as well as quicker installation and cost efficiencies.
