Extending the Service Life4

Miami Service Apartment Sukhumvit 49, Bangkok


Established in 1965, the Miami Hotel group added this low-rise (7 storey, single basement) serviced apartment building to its inventory of property, which was completed in early 2018.

Low cost and short down-time maintenance were key targets for the project designers. Xypex was specified across a broad range of the buildings structures to meet these needs. Our performance based solutions have been utilised in water tanks (potable and waste), the 2nd floor swimming pool, roof decks, balconies and bathrooms.

After installing 400m of construction joint systems (Superswell 47b), repairing concrete construction defects (Xypex Patch and Plug, Megamix II and MP & P Mortar – 900kg in total), Xypex Concentrate was applied over 1000m2 of the structure to provide the waterproofing, chemical resistance, durability and long-service life the designers had specified.
