The Cyber World Towers in Bangkok provide both retail and commercial spaces to businesses, located in one of the prime commercial hubs of Bangkok. The site comprises two skyscraper towers, 53 and 48 storeys high, and has a peculiar construction history.
After a fire which badly damaged the external structure of the building, construction was halted for many years. Specialist solutions were needed to remediate large parts of the buildings and in particular, the basement areas. These sections had suffered severe deterioration form the harsh ‘marine like’ ground conditions commonly found in Bangkok.
Xypex Thailand specified the combined use of Xypex Concentrate, Xypex Patch’n Plug and Xypex Megamix II to assist in the following areas; remediating corrosion in the concrete reinforcement steel work in the water tanks, repairing water leaks to the basement areas and returning durability and an extension of service life to the below ground areas.
As construction recommenced and reached the top floors of the building, Xypex Thailand were again engaged to provide waterproofing solutions to newly built roof slabs and high-level water storage tanks.
This was a truly unique opportunity to showcase the performance-based solutions Xypex products provide, from older age remediation of concrete structures, enhancement of durability and service life extension, along with the benefits Xypex solutions give to new structures.
