Forming part of the new £120 million Bond Street retail development on the banks of the River Chelmer in Chelmsford, a major new department store has been assured of a watertight future thanks to a comprehensive range of waterproofing solutions from Sika.
The new 120,000 sq foot department store forms an anchor to this retail development which will also include other major retailers, riverfront restaurants, a five screen cinema complex and a 275 space basement car park.
Due to the development’s proximity to the river, the water table on the site was high, which meant that consulting engineers had to pay close attention to the threat of water ingress. To overcome this they designed a dual waterproofing system approach to ensure against potential water ingress into the building’s large basement car park and service areas.
Sika was ideally placed to meet the requirements of this design by providing a dual system of more than 7,000m2 of the company’s innovative Sikaproof A12 membrane system, together with 4,500m3 of Sika Watertight Concrete.
