When Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains was in urgent need of a tough waterproof material that could hold up to a harsh winter construction environment after a previously chosen product wasn’t able to meet the temperature requirements needed to not delay the renovation deadline, John Rakus, Estimator for EDA, reached out to Tim Durso with W. R. MEADOWS. Tim was able to immediately recommend MEL-ROL waterproofing membrane for the project. Jason Sorci, Partner/CFO of Architectural Design Consultants, Inc., had no problem approving the product switch to MEL-ROL after hearing about its flexibility, versatility, and dependable nature.
During the duration of phase 1 of the renovation project that took place from January 2014 through early 2015, over 70,000 sq. ft. of MEL-ROL was installed. A 100-year storm and significant cold spells didn’t inhibit MEL-ROL’s quality or installation. With the help of MEL-ROL, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions was able to reopen on schedule in late summer. A second renovation phase has already commenced. When completed in the spring of 2017, the 150-acre Kalahari Resorts & Conventions will be America’s largest indoor waterpark.
