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.

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.
