Staying dry – and wet – with PENETRON Technology

August 24, 2015

Fort Lauderdale’s newest luxury apartment complex, The Manor: Lauderdale by the Sea, features a stylish infinity pool & terrace. PENETRON technology was used to keep the parking garage and the pool – directly above the garage – completely dry and waterproof.

Concrete treated with PENETRON ADMIX and all construction joints sealed with PENEBAR SW-55 ensures no water will seep into the parking area from above.

The Manor: Lauderdale by the Sea is a 363,000 square foot, eight-story mid-rise luxury apartment complex with 264 units (1-3 bedrooms) built atop a single story parking garage with room for 158 cars. The complex includes an infinity pool, spa, sun deck areas, fitness center, café, club room and event meeting/dining room.

Situated directly on top of the parking area, the full-sized swimming pool shell and surrounding terrace area were treated with PENETRON ADMIX and all resulting construction joints were sealed with PENEBAR SW-55 to ensure a durable structure that would never leak water into the parking area.

“The option to position the pool area directly above the garage gave the designers at RLC Associates the flexibility to create an efficient layout,” explains Christopher Chen, Director of The PENETRON Group.

As the world’s most efficient and economic permeability-reducing concrete admixture, PENETRON ADMIX was utilized by the Suffolk Construction Company in the concrete mix to provide comprehensive protection against concrete deterioration, even with high hydrostatic pressure.

“Easy to mix during batching and unaffected by climatic conditions, PENETRON ADMIX has been proven to significantly increase concrete durability and service life,” adds Mr. Chen. “PENETRON ADMIX is now an integral part of the concrete matrix at The Manor – in both the pool and garage – and will last during the life of the concrete.”

The PENETRON Group is a leading manufacturer of specialty construction products for concrete waterproofing, concrete repairs and floor preparation systems. The Group operates through a global network, offering support to the design and construction community through its regional offices, representatives and distribution channels.
