Central Swimming Pool, Reading
Structural Renovations have recently completed extensive waterproofing and refurbishment works at Central Swimming Pool in Reading. Working closely with KRP Consulting Engineers and Reading Borough Council, Structural Renovations have completed waterproofing of the tiled pool surrounds, waterproofing of the diving pool roof and concrete repairs within the undercroft.
The existing tiled surrounds had began to let water penetrate through causing damage to the concrete elements within the undercroft below. A solution was sought to provide a robust seamless coating to not only prevent the water ingress but also a non-slip surface and a finish that was aesthetically pleasing. The pool was closed for two weeks before Christmas 2015 and a spray applied polyurea coating incorporating a high adhesion primer and non-slip beading was installed.
During the same shut down period the roof over the diving pool was waterproofed using Sikalastic 625, which is a reinforced waterproof seamless membrane. Concrete repairs were carried within the undercroft using the Sika MonoTop range.
The works were successfully completed within the two week programme to the satisfaction of the clients and end users.
