Bauder was specified for the project to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the podium deck, whilst also ensuring the building was watertight. The clients main priority for the podium deck was for it to be free draining so that there was no standing water.
After exploring various waterproofing solutions, Bauders cold liquid applied systems was selected as the most suitable solution.
As the low door thresholds connecting to the podium deck could not be raised, the entire build-up for the majority of the cold liquid waterproofing and landscaping elements would need to be less than 100mm in height. Due to the restrictions, Bauders Versicell 20 was specified with the capability to withstand heavy loads at a height of 20mm.
The LiquiTEC system also incorporated 140mm of Bauders JFRI insulation in sunken areas of the podium, to ensure a level surface across the deck and combining thermal efficiency with environmental friendliness.
The surface deck consists of three distinct finishes; permeable paving on the ground floor patios and walkways, artificial turf featuring fibreglass planters to serve as a communal garden and rubber mulch to create a play area for children.
The cantilever style balconies and communal walkways were waterproofed using Bauders LiquiBALKON system.
The system features PMMA resin technology that provides fast curing times and can withstand foot traffic within an hour of being installed – this was essential as the residents remained on site throughout the installation.
Harsha Amin, Project Manager from Hackney Homes, commented: The required refurbishment works at Morris Blitz Court were by no means straight forward. However Bauder were able to deliver a comprehensive, single source waterproofing solution of the absolute quality; providing expert technical support throughout the project and demonstrating exceptional levels of workmanship.
They caused minimal disruption to residents and have successfully transformed this housing estate in terms of appearance and functionality; creating a visually appealing and inviting communal space where residents of all ages can relax and socialise.
