Berkeley Square is situated a few minutes walk from Sauchiehall Street, in what was a neglected part of Glasgow, halfway between the City Centre and the West End.

The new development is a fast track design and build project for City Business Parks. The scheme comprises four office blocks linked by an elevated podium deck above secure basement parking for 111 cars.

The Challenge . . .

The podium deck included planters, with expansion joints and many pipe through details. There was a requirement for a fully bonded, liquid waterproofing system. The waterproofing had to be appropriate for the phased nature of the work on a congested site during Winter/Spring time.

The Solution . . .

Procor™ Liquid Waterproofing Membrane is a two-component, synthetic rubber, trowel applied liquid waterproofing system that cures to form a resilient fully bonded elastomeric sheet. Procor™ is seamless, primerless, solvent free and is particularly suited to elevated deck and sub-structure applications. Procor™ is recommended as an alternative to hot applied bituminous wateroofing products because there is no fire risk, there are no solvents and it requires no heating plant. It can be trowel applied to damp and green concrete.
