Alchemco’s DuraTite Temporary Roof System Proving Invaluable to Construction Industry as Supply Chain Issues Delay Roofing Materials

Alchemco’s Temporary Roof System Allows Workers to Proceed

with Interior Construction Without Fear of Leaks 

 

HENRICO, Va.  – Alchemco, a world leader in innovative concrete waterproofing systems, has introduced a revolutionary new product that is helping to alleviate troublesome construction delays as a result of ongoing supply chain issues. With the delivery of roofing materials being delayed in many cases six to nine months, the company’s new DuraTite Temporary Roof System is allowing construction workers to confidently proceed with interior construction work while they await the arrival of the permanent roofing materials.

Alchemco’s DuraTite product line is known industry-wide as a best-in-class waterproofing and surface protection solution, whether the need is to plug an existing construction leak or lay new concrete. The company’s new Temporary Roof System takes that several steps further, providing a very quick and inexpensive way for concrete roof decks to be ‘dried in’ for up to a year so framers, electricians, plumbers, and other construction workers can continue work inside the building while they wait for permanent roofing materials to arrive.

 

“Alchemco is proud to have developed an effective solution that is proving invaluable for the construction industry considering lengthy material delays,” said Alchemco CEO Mario Baggio. “Our DuraTite Temporary Roof System allows critical building projects to proceed to the next phase while workers await necessary roofing materials, so they can stay on schedule. We’re pleased to serve as a solution provider for the construction industry, not only while supply chain issues continue to disrupt their workflow, but as their go-to waterproofing products that promise to extend the life of any construction project.”

In addition to the new DuraTite Temporary Roof System, the product line includes Crystalline Admix to effectively blocks the passage of water when added to concrete or mortar; DuraTite Foundation which blocks water when applied to the surface and ensures permanent water tightness; DuraTite Plug, a fast-acting hydraulic cement plug that stops actively-flowing water so leaks can be repaired; and DuraTite Repair Mortar, a quick-setting, ready-to-use repair mortar for vertical and overhead applications.

Originally developed more than 45 years ago, Alchemco’s unique technology has positioned the company as the dominant world leader in concrete waterproofing systems. Its products have been proven to help building owners avoid ongoing maintenance issues and structural problems typical of concrete structures, such as corrosion, spalling and carbonation. Compared to competing products, Alchemco’s waterproofing systems help owners save on application labor as well as the volume of materials needed to waterproof a structure, while protecting the concrete structure for decades.

Cambridge Architectural: Metal Mesh with Flying Boat Graphics Memorializes Miami’s Seaplane History on New Public Parking Garage

Cambridge Architectural: Metal Mesh with Flying Boat Graphics Memorializes Miami’s

Seaplane History on New Public Parking Garage

 

 

 

 

–Aviation images on stainless fabric add to Art in Public Places program–

 

 

 

Cambridge, Maryland – Shimmering Cambridge Architectural metal mesh designed to obscure vehicle visibility at Miami’s new Grove Bay public parking garage is also the canvas for a series of bold graphics that pay homage to the historic seaplanes that once flew from the site.

 

The garage’s location at Coral Grove’s Dinner Key was home to the first continental naval air station in the early 1900s and later became the base for Pan American Airways flying boats serving Havana and South America destinations from 1930 – 1945.

 

A public-private venture between the City of Miami, Miami Parking Authority and investors, the garage will serve customers at Regatta Harbour’s retail shops, restaurants and marina as well as visitors to Miami City Hall, the former art deco Pan American terminal.

 

“The project’s location is directly visible from a prominent street and at the gateway to City Hall, said Marcel Morlote, AIA, senior vice president at Wolfberg Alvarez & Partners. “It required that the building’s façade be attractive and imaginative.”

 

The second and third floors – on four out of five sides of the garage – are covered with Cambridge’s Lanier pattern. The metal mesh features eight images of Clipper flying boats interspersed with milestone dates and aviation descriptors that are powder-coated on the stainless fabric.

 

“The mesh designs,” said Morlote, “provided the best option to achieve several seemingly contradictory requirements:  block direct visibility of automobiles as required by code; be open enough to satisfy the owner’s requirements; and act as a canvas for artwork to fulfill the City’s Art in Public Places mandate.”

 

The City requires developers to spend 1.5 percent of budget on public art for all new building projects. The flying boat graphics memorialize a piece of Miami history in a contemporary fashion, said Morlote.

 

Cambridge’s durable stainless mesh – woven by artisans on Maryland’s Eastern Shore – delivers several important functional benefits according to the company’s Sales Manager Ivan Zorn.

 

“With a 48 percent open area, the mesh conceals vehicles from the outside while accommodating open air flow requirements for ventilation and providing a tightly woven medium to apply the powder-coated graphics,” said Zorn. “The tensioned mesh panels also comply with Florida building codes for wind force and hurricane resistance.”

 

At total of 267 stainless mesh panels – 10,356 square feet – were installed on the 333-space garage.

 

The garage and mesh are lit at night.

Clark Pacific Manufactures and Constructs Sacramento State’s First Parking Structure to Earn Parksmart Gold Recognition

February 16, 2021

 

Clark Pacific Manufactures and Constructs Sacramento State’s First Parking Structure to Earn Parksmart Gold Recognition

Resilient, sustainable parking structure constructed in just over 10 months is the first University to receive gold status

 

 

 

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 16, 2021  — Clark Pacific, a leading provider of prefabricated systems that are transforming building design and construction, today announced Sacramento State’s Parking Structure 5 has earned Parksmart Gold Recognition. Parking Structure 5 is a 1,750-stall, six-story example of modern construction innovation, from its cooling white interior and technical amenities, to the dozens of green aluminum “leaves” that pay homage to the University’s urban forest.

Sacramento State is the first university in the country to achieve Parksmart Gold, the only rating system for parking structures that promotes sustainable mobility through smarter design and operation. Collaboration with Clark Pacific, a longtime partner to the University, and using its prefabricated building systems were critical to delivering the project within budget and significantly faster, with far less campus impact than conventional systems.

“Sustainability, innovation, determination and teamwork were key factors contributing to Parking Structure 5’s designation as a Parksmart Gold certified project,” said Tony Lucas, associate vice president for business and administrative services at Sacramento State. “Those factors are a part of the Sacramento State DNA and guide our stewardship of precious resources. The certification is testimony to Sacramento State’s commitment to a sustainable environment.”

Nearly all structural components and façade elements were fabricated by Clark Pacific off-site and transported to the site to be erected. When the project gained approvals and permits to begin construction, approximately 90 percent of fabrication was already complete. Using a progressive design-build method and precast elements, the project was finished in just over 10 months. Additionally, transportation of prefabricated pieces was completed during off-hours, ultimately limiting the overall amount of construction traffic on campus created by the project. Off-site manufacturing removed over 5,700 worker days from the jobsite, reducing commuter impacts by over 10,000 car trips, as well as parking and site impacts the campus would have encountered with a conventional construction method.

“This certainly isn’t the norm for parking structures and we all have a lot to be proud of in achieving Parksmart Gold,” said Erik Winje, preconstruction manager for Clark Pacific. “Hats off to Sacramento State for sticking to its sustainability vision and to Dreyfuss + Blackford for a design well done.”

About Clark Pacific 
Clark Pacific is a leading manufacturer of prefabricated building systems. We are transforming design and construction by delivering high quality, cost-effective buildings with less risk. Clark Pacific paves the way for prefabrication as a smarter, safer and more efficient way to bring great designs to life.

CRSI Releases Digital Version of Popular Design Guide on the ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete, New Digital Rights Management (DRM) Encryption Service for Publications

 

 

 

(SCHAUMBURG, IL – October 1, 2020) The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) has released a much- anticipated digital version of their Design Guide on the ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete, a design guide based on the ACI 318-19 code published in soft-cover form earlier this year.

 

The release of a PDF version of the Design Guide on the ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete follows both direct requests and an enthusiastic response from the design and architecture community after the soft-cover publication sold nearly 300 copies during CRSI’s first presale event.

 

The Design Guide contains comprehensive information on the design and detailing requirements in ACI 318- 19 for cast-in-place concrete buildings with nonprestressed reinforcement. The main goals of this publication are to provide a simplified roadmap that can be used to navigate through the ACI 318 requirements and step-by-step design procedures and design aids that make designing and detailing reinforced concrete buildings simpler and faster. Numerous design and detailing aids are provided throughout the 996-page document and over 140 worked-out, practical design examples are included that illustrate the proper application of the ACI 318 requirements.

 

With the release of the digital version of the Design Guide, CRSI has introduced a new digital rights management (DRM) encryption service for digital publications. Echoing best practices from other organizations’ digital rights management strategies, the new service protects files from piracy by requiring a one-time installation of an Adobe Acrobat plugin and enhances user experience by allowing commenting for collaboration.
