Highams Park, Mixed-use Development

The fantastic 11.2 acre regeneration scheme in Chingford, North London, this 37,000 sq ft Tesco superstore, 24 private sale apartments and business units was completed in September 2012.

Xypex was specified by the engineers because the crystalline material is perfect for the suspended service yard slab. Xypex was also specified in the basement areas for both the supermarket car park and residential units.

The first phase of the development was the basement car park for the Tesco store, the slab was cast against sheet piles. An external suspended service yard was built above this basement car park.

The second phase consisted of the residential basement. Xypex Admixture was used to minimise time on site as it has no limitations on pore size. This allowed the contractors to pore the concrete as they needed, reducing costs as both waterproofing and concrete placement happened at the same time.
