The case study delves into the intricate waterproofing projects undertaken by a Findlay-Evans Waterproofing in various healthcare facilities in Victoria. Highlighting their expertise, the study showcases their innovative solutions to challenges, ensuring that hospitals remain operational during the waterproofing process.
A multi-roof project where the problematic torchon membrane was replaced with the company's system, which incorporates a fiberglass interlayer.
The continuous operation of hospitals posed challenges. The company devised a method to waterproof in stages, ensuring no water ingress into critical areas like operating theaters and power plant rooms.
The recreation area was in poor condition. It was stripped and waterproofed, followed by the installation of a synthetic grass system, resulting in a pleasing aesthetic and effective waterproofing solution.
The hospital had three large leaking stairwells. The original rubberized sheet system was retained and overlaid with the company's system. The roof, which was in poor condition, was stripped and prepared for the new system.
The staff and engineering fraternity at the hospital were extremely satisfied with the outcome, especially noting the absence of water ingress during the process.
Findlay-Evans Waterproofing's proficiency in managing intricate waterproofing projects in critical environments like hospitals is commendable, ensuring both efficacy and satisfaction.
