ELEVATOR PITS – Grandview Way
Grandview Way, North York, ON
Elevator pit waterproofing
Two residential buildings located next to each other: a mid-rise and a high-rise building with three elevator pits each.
Cold joint leakage, floor cracks and concrete delamination.
Normal aging. High water table levels.
Contractors were presented with a comprehensive application design for the six elevator pits, to guarantee lasting waterproofing results. This included cold joint waterproofing along the perimeter of each pit, floor grinding to ensure proper adhesion, and a polyurea-based membrane with a two-foot upturn on walls.
