Contractor The Fraser Bruce Group
In conjunction with their overall re-design and waterproofing of the Penguin Pool, The Fraser Bruce Group incorporated a free draining resin system for the perimeter of the compound and within the Penguin nesting area. The main requirement was to ensure that the penguins were not standing on permanently wet surfaces during their nesting periods. The 30mm thick application on the nesting area allows surface water to drain through to the original surface that was waterproofed with a single coat resin membrane, allowing water to run to the existing drains.
Addastone TP UV resin with a 6-10mm Brittany Bronze aggregate was installed within the nesting area with a resin bound Terrabound 6mm Rhine Gold at a depth of 16mm for the perimeter surface.
Work was completed in March 2013.
