Broadgate, London

Situated in the heart of London’s square mile 5 Broadgate provides over 700,000 square feet of office space, this ground scraper is part of London's booming financial centre.

Three, four and six Broadgate were demolished to allow for construction of a 12 storey office building with two basement floors that will deliver state of the art trading facilities.

This world class office building will become the new home of UBS when fully occupied in 2016.

Xypex was selected to replace the specified external membrane. The main reason for this change to the specification was to simplify and speed up the construction process, and reduce cost.

Xypex Admix was used in the capping beam, basement walls and as a topping on the basement slab to ensure the double story basement remains totally dry. Not all walls are lined, so detailing needed to be created to manage and withhold the flow of water laterally where Xypex withheld the hydrostatic pressure.
