KK Times Square is located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu, a popular tourist destination near Borneo. The project’s first phase of 12 blocks of business suites, shops, offices and retail outlets, was completed in 2007 and used a combination of Kryton’s Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) admixture, T1 & T2 Waterproofing Treatment and Krystol Waterstop System from top to bottom. In light of the project’s proximity to Sutera Harbour in the South China Sea, the project called for a waterproofing system that could withstand constant hydrostatic pressure, protect against the corrosion of steel reinforcements and withstand the uncompromising heat and humidity of Sabah for many years.
More than 55,000 kilograms of KIM admixture was used to waterproof the basement slabs and elevator pits of KK Times Square Phase One. Kryton’s waterproofing products were also used in the elevated car ramps, pedestrian walkways, retaining walls, drainage areas and rooftops.
