As one can imagine, hotels in South Beach, Florida are able to charge a premium price because of their premium location. This price and the profits of these hotels become greater the closer to the ocean they get. W South Beach Hotel is one of these hotels, equipped with the three most important amenities a traveler needs when visiting: location, location, location.
It comes to reason that the structure must continually operate with high-performance in order to continually host guests with the level of service one expects. If an elevator isn’t working or pool closed for repairs whilst a visitor is there, its reputation could take a hit. W South Beach could have seen this occur when water leakages occurred through cracks in the walls and slabs around the foundation. A leak repair system that could repair these issues without interrupting service and have long-term performance was needed.
The contractor on the repair job was EC Consulting Partnership. They realized Kryton’s Krystol® technology was the best choice for this particular issue. Krystol Plug and Krystol Repair Grout were used to stop the leak, fill the crack, and seal the space. The two products repaired numerous areas of the foundation slab and walls of the hotel. Not only did the application of Krystol Plug and Krystol Grout stop the leak and repair the cracks in the concrete, but it was also easy to apply, cost-effective, and will work for the life of the structure. This means that EC Consulting will not be called back for more costly repairs to the same area.
As of writing, the leak repair job was completed without incident and no guest disruptions.
As part of the Krystol Leak Repair System, Krystol Repair Grout is a crystalline concrete waterproofing product that stops the flow of water to permanently repair leaking cracks, holes and joints in concrete, and can also be used to resurface and waterproof defective, damaged or deteriorating concrete. The grout employs advanced fiber technology and shrinkage controlling additives to prevent cracking.
