Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) – Waterloo Condos

Project: Westmount Grand Condominiums
Location: Waterloo, ON
Architect/Engineer: SRM Architects Inc.
Contractor: Tri City Ready Mix Limited/Jamesway Construction Group
Situation: Due to proximity with adjacent property lines, a traditional waterproofing for the retaining wall was impossible.
Solution: Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) was chosen to integrally waterproof the wall. KIM is a chemical admixture, added at the ready mix level, fully waterproofing any concrete structure, and eliminating the labour needed for installation of standard waterproofing. KIM can lower the cost of waterproofing by up to 40%, and save time off of the construction schedule.
