Project From Penetron: Jatiuca Trade Center, Brazil


Jatiúca Trade Center is a unique and grand-scale project in Maceió, capital of Alagoas, in the northeast region of Brazil, famous for its beautiful beaches with green and warm water. A new concept was developed which includes residential, commercial and leisure facilities encompassing a total area of 13’000m². Built by a Joint venture between CIPESA and GAFISA, one of the biggest contractors in Brazil, JTR offers a great quality of life, service and high tech in a superb location. It was quite a challenge to provide 12’000 parking spaces for 9 towers right in front of the beach. The basement car park stretches over 2 basement levels and the base slab was completely waterproofed with Penetron Admix and Penebar SW-55 in the joints. The challenges of completely waterproofing the 13’000 sqm basement slab as well as fulfill the other requirements of limiting excavation works and speeding up the construction schedule, were successfully accomplished with the Penetron system.
