Speaking about the project, PENETRON director of international sales and marketing, Josef Van Beeck, said that the main challenge to the project was inadequate space. First, the areas have a limit on the height of buildings that can be constructed. Secondly, the construction area was small. However, the company’s PENETRON ADMIX-treated concrete enabled the project to be perfectly constructed in the available project footprint. All PENETRON ADMIX used in the project were requested for in the project’s guidelines. The construction joints were filled using PENEBAR SW-55 waterstops. The result was a strong building having low permeability. Read more about the architecture of the hospital at rafarquitetura.com.
