Parking structures are of critical importance in an era of ever increasing car ownership and use. They not only serve to provide a valuable facility for public and private concerns, but are often a source of revenue for owners and operators. From an asset management perspective, it is crucial then that, during construction, maintenance or renovation, these structures are properly waterproofed and protected.

Quality concrete production
Concrete admixtures

Be they underground or multi-storey car parks, built using cast-in-place or precast concrete elements erected on site, (or combining both techniques in some instances), those structures will call for reinforced concrete. In all cases, the use of concrete admixtures and additives will improve concrete quality, workability, performance and durability.

Since a car park may be built under- or above-ground, with some areas of the structure exposed to the elements, waterproofing of foundations walls, basements, construction/expansion joints not to mention other construction details such as around the parking slabs, pillars, access ramps, stairways and other penetrations, need to be carefully designed and executed in order to prevent the ingress of water and avoid subsequent damages.
