Axter waterproofing for Admirals Quays – Southampton

Axter Ltd is the waterproofing designer and supplier for this vibrant waterfront new homes development in Southampton, forming an integral part of the riverside’s rejuvenation that includes courtyards, gardens and squares.

The landmark 26 storey residential tower and supporting 16 and 9 storey residential buildings incorporate a landscaped terrace at second floor level between the first two buildings. This provides an exciting space for new restaurants, creating active areas of public space within the marina.

Axter’s brief was to design and supply a robust inverted second generation hot melt structural waterproofing system (Wilotekt-Plus) in collaboration with the Axtershield Installer, project architect and developer construction team, carefully managing the many challenges posed, in particular the waterproofing interface junctions between existing and new structures.

Axter utilized its full system portfolio including the Exceljoint movement joint system to good effect to ensure the waterproofing was completed to the satisfaction of all parties.
Full design and system information, including BIM models, available from Axter.
