Flowcrete’s Flooring Collection Key for Cambridge Council Car Park

Flowcrete UK was chosen by Cambridge council to repair and reinvigorate a two-storey car park, ramp and large garage area in Newtown.

The problems in the 1,580m2 site included water migration, cracking across the floor, leaking gullies and undulations in the concrete slab. In the 45-unit garage area, a 100ml recess in the concrete slab was collecting water. Central to the selection of Flowcrete UK and its applicator partner was the ability to identify all the problems and deliver a complete package from pre-contract specification and inspection to post-contract inspection. This partnership meant that the client only had one source for all the repair mortars, screeds, damp proof membranes, PU injection systems, corrosion protection and resin coatings as well as the multidisciplinary knowledge required to upgrade the site. Flowfast F1 Mortar was used to repair the substrate and gullies as well as infill voids and buried joints. Isocrete Isopol SBR created a waterproof screed on the car park ramp and garage area as well as a waterproof render band. The Isocrete M-Bond primer was also applied to protect against rising moisture in the garage area. Flowcoat SF41, a hard wearing epoxy resin coating, was applied as a wearing surface across the 850m2 garage, with anti-slip aggregates incorporated into the finish. 700m2 of Deckshield was installed on the car park’s top deck and ramp to create a robust surface able to withstand traffic, weather and automotive chemicals.
