1 CASE STUDY 55 Allen Plaza Atlanta, United States BACKGROUND Allen Plaza in downtown Atlanta is a $1.9 billion (US) development that includes two million square feet of office space, 18,580.6 m² (200,000 sq.ft.) of retail and restaurants and more than 3,000 residences and 500 hotel rooms. The second of five buildings in the Allen Plaza complex is 55 Allen Plaza, a 14-storey high-rise that features a glass curtain wall skin in addition to a four-level below grade parking garage. The building site at 55 Allen Plaza sought to maximize its footprint so single-sided forming against the dirt was specified. Atlanta s ABE Enterprises installed their innovative shoring wall for the 12.19m (40ft) below-grade parking structure. The ABE Wall is built from the top down, rather than digging down to the required depth and installing the wall from the bottom up. This allows the developer to use the entire footprint of the property, as the wall is poured up against the dirt. However, since the shoring wall doesn t leave a lot of room outside of the wall for installing conventional waterproofing membranes, the project team required an equally innovate concrete waterproofing system for the wall. One that could also address concerns with the ground water and subsequent hydrostatic pressure as well as contaminants in the soil. SOLUTION The project team selected Kryton International s Krystol Concrete Waterproofing System to waterproof the shoring wall. Based on Kryton s proprietary crystalline waterproofing technology, the Krystol System employs advanced integral crystalline waterproofing technology to transform porous concrete into a permanent, water-resistant barrier and provides a guaranteed defense against water damage and steel reinforcement corrosion through constant head pressure.

2 CASE STUDY 55 Allen Plaza Atlanta, United States concrete, Krystol causes millions of needle-like crystals to grow and spread concrete particles and permanently block the movement of water and waterborne contaminants and resisting hydrostatic pressure. If cracks later form, incoming water cause additional crystals to grow, filling the cracks and ensuring that the structure s waterproofing barrier is protected. Because it eliminates the need for external membranes, the Krystol system is ideal for blind wall applications like the ABE Wall. The system is easy to install and significantly less expensive than other conventional waterproofing systems, especially in the case of 55 Allen Plaza where access to the structure s positive side was limited. And unlike waterproofing membranes that are often damaged during backfilling, Krystol lasts the lifetime of the structure, reducing the need for future maintenance and repairs. To waterproof the below-grade shoring wall at 55 Allen Plaza, the project team used a total of 7,257.5kg (16,000lbs) of Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) and 1,587.6kg (3,500lbs) of Krystol Waterstop System (KWS) to treat the oints. The project team found that by using the Krystol Concrete Waterproofing System, they saved considerable time in the construction process and reduced overall costs through the efficient elimination of numerous extra steps normally encountered when building these type of below grade walls. The ABE Wall, with KIM, provided the customer with unique savings in time and cost, engineering values that are important to all the parties in such a significant project. Kryton is a great team to work with and we are extremely impressed with their waterproofing products, says Rick Anderson, President of ABE. Their products do what they promise to do. Even though there s water behind the walls at 55 Allen Plaza, it s not leaking through the concrete because of Kryton s crystalline technology.
