TQ3 Technical Services Produce Record Breaking Month in Manhattan

TQ3 Tech Services were able to take full advantage of the kind October weather and help install a record amount of spray applied waterproofing for one month. In the third week alone we manage to install close to 45,000 sf of completed waterproofing across multiple projects. With 6 spray rigs and multiple teams of technicians we managed installations as diverse as roofing in lower Manhattan, a 70,000 sf of parking garage on the upper west side, water tanks in mid-town and a plaza deck on the upper east side.

Of note is the project at 205 E. 92nd St, TQ3 systems are being used at multiple locations on this mixed use development for The Related Companies. The third week of October saw the plaza deck at that location have 14,000 sf of Prodeq ™ waterproofing installed in a single shift. TQ3 technicians working in conjunction approved installer MRS of Hackensack, NJ were able to co-ordinate the work with two spray machines working simultaneously throughout the day. Great job by everyone involved !

Below is a video showing the two crews working side by side….

In addition to the work in Manhattan we also completed projects in Brooklyn, Queens and, of course, The Bronx.

Qontain Waterproofs walls at Bronx River House


Kiss Cathcart Architects have chosen multiple TQ3 systems for the new Bronx River House development in The Bronx. One of the more interesting application was the use of our Qontain system to waterproof the CMU walls, approximately 9,000 sf, prior to placement of decorative screen. This technically challenging application was carried out by approved installer Roseshield working in partnership with TQ3 Technical Services. Difficult detailing and the vertical application made this a challenging installation for traditional liquid systems. Once prepared and primed the installation was completed in two days with two people.

Prodeq ™ Waterproofs 70,000 sf of green and blue roofs in downtown Philadelphia


TQ3’s Prodeq ™ waterproofing was chosen to waterproof the new green roof development at Cira Center in the heart of downtown Philadelphia. Prodeq’s robust finish was a key to deciding the choice of system, no protection board was required and the waterproofing was driven on throughout the whole construction phase. Designer Roofmeadow in conjunction with approved installer EDA Contractors and GC Hunter Roberts worked tirelessly to co-ordinate the installation over the last 18 months – the grand opening took place recently.
