Meadowhall Shopping Centre
Continually leaking movement joints to large areas of the elevated parking deck at Sheffield’s Meadowhall Shopping Centre have been a persistent headache to the centre’s owner, British Land.
As well as paintwork damage to vehicles parking below the elevated parking deck as salt-laden water constantly seeped through, the leaking joints had seriously affected footfall as staff of both the centre’s retail tenants & shoppers decided not to park underneath for risk of getting wet.
After an extensive review and re-design process lasting almost 24 months in conjunction with Triflex (UK) Ltd, Makers were appointed as the successful contractor following a competitive tender process.
Even though the asphalt wearing course on the parking deck had been previously overlaid with an elastomeric, waterproof layer, due to the movement differential between concrete and asphalt meant that a large gap opened up allowing water ingress via the failed joints and on to parked vehicles and pedestrian users below.
Makers scope of work on the project was to completely remove the existing pre formed failing joints and to reinstate with new watertight & trafficable movement joints.
