Hycrete Endure WP
The project's designers selected Hycrete Endure WP for concrete waterproofing due to the complex environmental needs of the live production studios located below grade.
Hycrete Endure WP admixture was used extensively throughout the foundation, elevator pits, and below-grade walls to protect the live production studios located below grade.
Hycrete Endure WP is a hydrophobic liquid admixture that, when mixed with concrete, forms a performance copolymer that fills the concrete's natural capillary system. The result is concrete that is virtually non-porous and resistant to the transport of moisture vapor and liquid. The project team and Disney aim to achieve LEED Platinum certification, highlighting their sustainability commitment. The project is expected to be completed in 2024.
