Sekolah Sukan Sabah is one of Malaysia’s first sports schools, designed to train potential Olympians in a single integrated facility. The state-of-the-art center features amenities for every imaginable sport, including both swimming and diving categories. As the pools would be utilized daily, the waterproofing solution would have to effectively resist heavy usage, chlorine and hydrostatic pressure.
The project owners began to look for a solutions provider that could present a permanent and effective product. Several concrete waterproofing options were presented, but not all companies were able to provide case studies of projects in the Kota Kinabalu region.
Kryton was able to present a strong case with their Krystol Internal Membrane™ (KIM®) which was used in the neighboring Marina Bay Sands project. With the recommendation of the design engineer, Kryton was able to demonstrate their ability to take the risk out of concrete waterproofing. Over 1,100 cubic meters (38,800 cubic feet) of concrete was treated with KIM, which was used to construct the swimming pool, diving pool and deck areas. Following an inspection, the design engineer said that KIM performed exactly as it stipulated in the technical data sheets.
