France St Apartments

France St Apartments

The project architects Paul Brown were looking for an option where the structural waterproofing membrane could be laid to shallow falls including a Zero fall application. By providing the architects with this option it allowed them more height to play with in design of the apartments. Due to council rules That govern threshold heights at the balcony entrances you are restricted unless you can lay the membranes to lower falls.

By specifying our structural waterproofing Permatec it is laid directly onto the concrete slab and by doing this you can eliminate wet trades and save on time and money throughout the project. Also, by laying the membrane to shallower falls it gives greater stability to the tile Jack system.

Neuchâtel was involved early in the design stage to elevate any design issues. Working through the design process allowed us to select the most suitable products and systems for the balcony areas and lower podium.
