Westfield Newmarket

Scentre Group were designing a new mall at 309 Broadway to join onto the existing mall and had a large outdoor entertainment area with water features, planters, large trees, children’s play area, tiled area and outdoor seating all placed over a shopping mall. They were looking to the waterproofing suppliers within the marketplace who had a proven solution for podium waterproofing. The remit from Scentre Group was that they could not have this area leaks once it was finished as it was over a live shopping mall.

Due to Asphaltech having a history with Scentre Group due to the fact that our Pacoflex system had been used on other projects for Westfield with great success and they were very familiar with our way of working and the team we had behind us. They were extremely comfortable as having our company as the preferred supply and installation contractor for the project. Pacoflex was the product and system of choice for this complicated podium area. The project was one of the most challenging of my waterproofing career which spans over 30 years. But having completed this area to extremely difficult timeframes and to a remarkably high standard. I find the end finish very rewarding.

Asphaltech solution

Extremely strong, durable and can be easily formed/molded to complex shapes the premium Podium system is perfect for modern construction. In its malleable state, when hot, it allows a full range of surface finishes from the mastic asphalt wearing layer, which can be stamped with patterns, coloured or just smooth flat providing a stable base for overlaying various surface finishes from the pavers on pedestals systems to simple decorative pebbled surfaces.
