Our Hawkesbury District & General Hospital (HGH) case study describes the problem and solution when the new additions to the structure were designed and built. This case study is a great way to learn more about how W. R. Meadows products were used to waterproof this large project.
When the Hawkesbury District & General Hospital (HGH) decided to build two large additions to its community hospital in Hawkesbury, Ontario, Canada, construction officials knew there was a big problem to solve. Below ground level was a substrate composed of solid rock with gravel on top. That meant there was no place for accumulated ground water to go, except maybe to seep through the concrete into the building and damage everything that got in its way.
To solve this problem, Erskine Dredge & Associates Architects, Inc. spoke to our sales rep, Glen English, to determine a plan of action. The result was the specification and installation of Precon, Mel-Rol LM, and Mel-Drain.
This case study features quotes and information directly from Glen, along with information on each step of the construction process. It also features quotes from the contractor, Bondfield Construction, on the specifics of installing these building envelope membranes.
