Signed and sealed

On the back of growing passenger numbers – a rise in passengers of 17 per cent was reported in the first quarter of 2015 alone – Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 Short Stay Multi-Storey car park has been expanded by an additional four floors, taking the total number of spaces to 2500.

Stirling Lloyd’s Decseal waterproof coating range was specified for the project, the third time that the range has been used on a project at the airport. Due to the nature of the build, lightweight materials were essential, as well as speed of application. The car park remained open during the project and work was staggered.

A variety of Decseal solutions were used in the car park project. The full system, reinforced, was used on the external area of the third floor and the sixth floor top deck, as both are exposed to the elements and required additional protection. The full system with reinforcement provides waterproofing as well as exceptional crack resistance.

In total, 10,500m2 of car park deck was treated with a Decseal waterproofing and wear course system, with a fully embedded scrim. Decseal’s Wearing Course system, in colours including lilac and pastel orange, was specified in a further 4000 m2, including 1000 m2 of internal pedestrian walkways.
