Princes Street, Doncaster

Xypex Admix was a late specification change over the waterproofing system initially proposed, as Xypex creates a Grade 3 (BS 8102:2009) completely dry environment but does not limit the aspect ratio, shape, pour size or total volume of concrete that can be placed.

This ability for bigger pours reduced the number of joints required, in turn lowering risk and cost, with the additional benefit of allowing the contractor to make up lost program time.

Xypex Admix was used in the 2400m2 basement slab that was poured up to steel sheet piles, whilst a Xypex joint detail was specifically designed to allow for any shrinkage of the concrete slab away from the steel sheet piles.
