Perth case study – The Towers & the Ritz Carlton

Head Builder: ProBuild
Architect(s)/Consultant(s): Cottee Parker Architects & Far East Consortium
The Towers & The Ritz Carlton are located on the picturesque Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. These world-class amenities are the centrepiece of the Elizabeth Quay development, and the most significant foreshore project in Western Australia. The project includes 379 residential apartments, a 204-room five-star luxury hotel with penthouses, six swimming pools, along with ground floor retail, dining, and event spaces all integrated into this resort-style development.
The sheer size of this project was an enormous challenge, with 60,000 m2 of tiling products and 20,000 m2 of waterproofing products. Ardex was specified for this showpiece development due to our SystemARDEX approach, proven product reliability and performance, and unmatched technical service and field support. The project was required to remain on schedule, and to ensure the specified products matched the project’s environmental demands and performance criteria.
ARDEX provided complete tiling and waterproofing solutions for environments such as internal wet and dry areas, balconies, swimming pools, and facade.
Internal and external areas consisted of ARDEX WPM 300, ARDEX WPM 002, ARDEX X18, ARDEX FG8 and ARDEX SE Silicone. Swimming pools and spas included ARDEX WPM 300, ARDEX WPM 405, ARDEX WPM 002, ARDEX X18, ARDEX E90 Additive, ARDEX FG8 with ARDEX Grout Booster, and ARDEX ST Silicone. The entire building was coated in ARDEX WPM 310 prior to mechanically fixed cladding being installed.
The ARDEX specification provided a complete SystemARDEX tiling and waterproofing solution of high quality, totally compatible products supported by market leading technical service and field support.
