Riverfront in Napa is a high-end, mixed-use building that offers the Napa lifestyle to its residential, retail and office residents. Resembling a quaint street that one could expect in Europe, Riverfront is a destination property that offers city living with rural charm.
Stretching on a two-block site running alongside the river, the project had several construction challenges including a fast-paced schedule, high hydrostatic head pressure, flowing water, and changing water levels throughout the year. Moreover, as the concrete would be placed using shotcrete, traditional membranes would not be suitable for their waterproofing needs.
Given the tight construction cycle, the contractors were interested in KIM’s time-saving benefits. Unlike membranes, KIM does not require skilled tradesmen, and is a very effective means for waterproofing shotcrete.
