The Bombora, Cronulla
APPLICATOR: Soleace Waterproofing
ARCHITECT: Vic Lakes Architects
The Bombora in Cronulla, NSW, are high end apartments situated at the edge of the beach. Positioned in an affluent area, neighbouring homes are often sold in excess of several million dollars.
The building features cutting edge architectural feats and promises a lifestyle for residents that is only often dreamt about. It features a sought-after penthouse balcony complete with swimming pool.
Given the luxury nature of these residences, a premium quality service and product were required.
ARDEX was selected by Soleace Waterproofing as the supplier of choice for this project, due to SystemARDEX offering and reliability of products and service.
Despite the awe-inspiring views and close proximity to the shore, the location can pose a number of problems for the exterior of the building. Namely, the building and rooftop are often exposed to high winds and salt content in the air as well as other intense weather conditions such as high UV exposure.
The unique elements comprised in this project was the need to complete the job efficiently and with durable and reliable products to withstand the distinctive environmental conditions, all without compromising on the elite aesthetic that the property needed to retain. Not only that, but the rooftop area was sizable for a residential project, coming in at 350 square metres.
The ARDEX products used were:
ARDEX WPM 717 – WeldTec Fleece-backed Waterproofing Membrane which is a weldable and fleece backed waterproofing membrane ideal for uneven substrates. It provides excellent resistance to ageing from heat, sunlight, atmospheric pollution and ozone. It’s also beneficial in horizontal or vertical applications for waterproofing decks and roofs that have residual moisture or are not perfectly flat and smooth.
ARDEX WPM 1000 – WeldTec External Undertile Waterproofing Membrane
This product is a versatile, external undertile waterproofing membrane ideal for use on balconies, roofs, decks, under tiles, pavers, and cavity door flashings and is known for its durability.
ARDEX WPM 002 is a tough, fast-drying two-component waterproofing membrane specifically designed for use under tiles. The product has been uniquely formulated with synthetic microfibres to increase its strength and eliminate the need for a separate reinforcement mat. Due to the high-end nature of the bathrooms and internal wet areas, ARDEX WPM 002, with its proven track-record in the Australian market, was the product of choice.
ARDEX WPM 300 two-component, water-based epoxy polyamide was the ideal membrane and barrier coating which is ideal for damp or drying concrete and internal wet areas, again selected to meet the demands of the humid environment.
