Case Study

EdgePoint Apartments

Being able to use Hycrete as an alternative to the waterproofing detailed on the project enabled us to save the general contractor a significant amount of time on their schedule.
Ben Morse, Precision Concrete Project Manager

In order to meet the parking requirements, the lowest parking level had to be constructed below the existing water table. The team needed a solution capable of withstanding high hydrostatic pressure. Due to weather, the originally planned membrane system caused a multi-week delay to the construction schedule.


Hycrete360 (formerly System W) offered superior performance in comparison to other waterproofing systems. Hycrete provided a much simpler approach than the originally planned membrane system and was able to get the project back on schedule. Hycrete's membrane free system eliminated the need to excavate further for a rat slab the membrane required for installation. Using Hycrete saved the contractor a significant amount of time and money.


Shea Properties was able to shave weeks off the construction schedule, in turn saving them money. The non-absorbent concrete surface reduces maintenance for the duration of the building life and included a 10-year performance-based no questions asked warranty. As a result, the property owner has a company they can count on to keep their building dry and operational.
