The first-ever Airbus manufacturing facility in the U.S. was waterproofed using products from W. R. Meadows. We’re proud of this fact and our newest case study relays the facts in this unique application.
One of the biggest hurdles to overcome was the fact that the site of this project, Mobile, Alabama, is the rainiest city in the U.S. Obviously, high quality waterproofing materials were needed to ensure that moisture did not intrude the structure and the architect and contractor team decided upon our Precon, Perminator, and Mel-Drain products.
As the September 2015 grand opening of the Airbus plant – which employs 300 local workers to build A319, A320 and A321 model jetliners – proved, the contractors were able to find the right waterproofing solutions. For waterproofing specialist Ram Construction Services and the general contracting firm of Brasfield & Gorrie, many of their solutions relied on our waterproofing and moisture control products.

We also have a handy PDF available for download if you’d like to save the file and send to colleagues and clients. If you’re an architect or contractor working on a unique W. R. Meadows project, please let us know and we can develop a case study that promotes not only the project, but your firm and business as well. We’d love to work with you!
