Situation:

Raffles City is going through re-roofing works for its entire Reinforced Concrete planters and flat roofs using ARDEX WPM 116 and WPM 160, two layers torched applied waterproofing membrane. The RC rooftop helipad is a critical area as any hacking on the RC slab to lay new waterproofing membranes might cause leakage to the restaurant below. The landing zone lightning built into the RC slab make the detailing works for installing new membranes difficult and tedious.

Challenges:

Reinforced Concrete Rooftop Helipad Waterproofing (570m2)
– Short completion day (5 days including surface preparation)
– Exposed to weather environment
– Existing commercial environment with restaurant right below, so required to minimize inconvenience caused for customers and tenants while conducting works
– Heavy duty wear and abrasion resistance for helicopter landing
