UPark Gawler Place Adelaide

Waterproof Deck Coating Solution for Gawler Place

The City of Adelaide owned and operated UPark Gawler Place provides locals and visitors with easily accessible parking in the center of Adelaide. Open 7 days a week, the undercover parking facility required an urgent trafficable waterproof deck coating solution.

Flowcrete Australia was consulted on how the operators could prevent water leakage into the tenancies located below, whilst ensuring the structural integrity of the parking facility was maintained. An added challenge was that the facility needed to remain operational throughout the installation.

Deckshield ED Rapide was the ideal solution for the unique challenges at UPark Gawler Place. The hybrid PUMA system features the Deckshield PDS Membrane The Deckshield ED Rapide system also features the unique Deckshield PDS Membrane which CSIRO assessed to AS 4654.1 Waterproofing membranes for external above-ground use, Part 1: Materials - the system was designed to prevent the water leakage faced by the car park operators.

Over 5,500m² of Deckshield ED Rapide was applied throughout the facility. The installation took approximately 2 months to complete, as the applicators were required to approach the project section by section, whilst liaising with traffic management to ensure parking operations were minimally disrupted and the facility remained open to patrons.
