  • 1. CONCRETE HYDROMEDIA Applications POOL DECKCONCRETE 12/02/2013 36CONCRETE
  • 2. Decks around Swimming Pools Ex: France, 2012 Benefits: 1. Safety due to high permeability 2. AestheticsCONCRETE 12/02/2013 37CONCRETE PUBLIC WALKWAYS With inflitration And/ or Drainage towards a water collection system, depending on needs and nature of the soilCONCRETE 12/02/2013 38CONCRETE
  • 3. PUBLIC WALKWAYS ex: Centennial College campus courtyard, Toronto, Canada, 2012 The architecs required a surface that 1. Complied with LEED requirements for storm water management, and 2. Would be lighter in color to help reduce the Heat Island Effect Size: ca 460m2 (1300 m3)CONCRETE 12/02/2013 39CONCRETE PARKING AREASCONCRETE 12/02/2013 40CONCRETE
  • 4. PARKING AREAS Artevia HYDROMEDIA Subbase Subgrade Water collection or infiltration through the soil depending on needCONCRETE 12/02/2013 41CONCRETE PARKING AREAS ex: Lafarge Technical Center, Canada- 2011 Benefits: Hydromedia permitted to obtain LEED points for a targeted Gold Building Size: ca 24 m3CONCRETE 12/02/2013 42CONCRETE
  • 5. PARKING AREAS ex: Kortright Center Langley Grammar School, Ontario, Canada- 2010 Hydromedia was specified for university research to compare asphalt, pervious asphalt, interlocking pacvements, and pervious concrete for Car park. Size: ca 50 m3CONCRETE 12/02/2013 43CONCRETE CAR WASH AREASCONCRETE 12/02/2013 44CONCRETE
  • 6. HELIPADCONCRETE 12/02/2013 45CONCRETE WATER PLAY PARKSCONCRETE 12/02/2013 46CONCRETE
  • 7. WATER FEATURESCONCRETE 12/02/2013 47CONCRETE RESIDENTIAL ROADSCONCRETE 12/02/2013 48CONCRETE
  • 8. SUB SURFACE DRAINAGE Benefit: Hydromedia acts as a flat and strong bedding with high permeability under pervious interlocking pavers, ensuring the durability of the pavement even under high traffic. Recommendation: This is especially suited when people wishes to enjoy the look of interlocking pavers and requires a high quality bedding. Highly resistant pavers should be used when a high load traffic traffic is expected.CONCRETE 12/02/2013 49CONCRETE HIGHWAY SHOULDERS Estimated cost Price (k€/km) Benefits: Drainage System Sustainable 36 • Safety improved (40% of accidents in Spain are due to Hydromedia (352 m3 & Placing) 46 run-off-roads collisions - DGT report) Total 82 • Easier Maintenance • Infiltration of rainwater • Reduced pollution • No erosion of road subbaseCONCRETE 12/02/2013 50CONCRETE
  • 9. FLOORS (POLISHED)CONCRETE 12/02/2013 51CONCRETE ASTRO TURFCONCRETE 12/02/2013 52CONCRETE
  • 10. GOLF CART PATHWAYSCONCRETE 12/02/2013 53CONCRETE OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT AREASCONCRETE 12/02/2013 54CONCRETE
  • 11. Roof Terrasse Benefits: Roof terrasse (with or without vegetation) with a slope underneath to drain the rain, and flat for people to stand on it. Hydromedia as a leveling Watertight and draining layer membraneCONCRETE 12/02/2013 55CONCRETE WATER DRAINING UNDER SLABS Benefits: Helps draining the water out when the water table raised under slabs, thus permitting to release hydrostatic pressure. Hydromedia as a draining layer under the slabCONCRETE 12/02/2013 56CONCRETE
  • 12. ROOF TERRASSES EX: Hydromedia for a terrasse in a monastery- Spain– June 2012 Roof terrasse at the CONVENTO DE MONTBLANC (Tarragona) The monastery had to be renovated and extended, with the roof becoming a terrasse for visitors to enjoy the scenery over the village and the Sierra de Montblanc. The job was detected after a mail sent by Lafarge to renovation contractors of the area to let them know about Lafarge’s innovative solutions. It lead to: A leveling and draining layer over the roof Flat and perfectly clean as well as Safe thanks to – the high permeability of Hydromedia (600 lt/m2/min), – and its high level of anti- slipperiness (class 3). 12/02/2013 57CONCRETECONCRETE 5 GREEN ROOFSCONCRETE 12/02/2013 58CONCRETE
  • 13. Retaining Walls Benefits: Reduced pressure from water on the wall Hydromedia wall SOILCONCRETE 12/02/2013 59CONCRETE PRECAST WALL UNITSCONCRETE 12/02/2013 60CONCRETE
  • 14. External Insulation wall panel ( tested in Italy ?) Benefit: - External insulation ? - Aesthetics ? (to check and document) Hydromedia wall pannelCONCRETE 12/02/2013 61CONCRETE FEATURE WALLS (currently tested in RSA) Water Air Cooling effectCONCRETE 12/02/2013 62CONCRETE
  • 15. ELMICH : Creating cities, where urban meets nature 1/2 VersiDrain® 25P is a lightweight, cost-effective water management sheet used below the growing media that functions to store and drain water and to protect the waterproofing membrane. The high water storage capacity of the cells coupled with high discharge capacity ensures effective capillary irrigation, eliminates the possibility of waterlogging, reduces irrigation frequency and minimizes fertilizer runoff and usage. Technical Specification: Material Polyethylene Compressive strength 50 kN/m2 Height 23mm Fire rating B2 (DIN 4102) Thickness 1mm Water storage capacity 6.1 l/m2 Flow rate @ 3% gradient 1.5 l/m.s Weight 0.9 kg/m2 Flow rate @ 2% gradient 1.2 l/m.s Roll size/dimensions 2.22m x 1.33m Life duration > 50 yearsCONCRETE 12/02/2013 65CONCRETE ELMICH : Creating cities, where urban meets nature 2/2CONCRETE 12/02/2013 66CONCRETE
