East Setauket, NY (PRWEB) June 8, 2006
ICS Penetron International Ltd., a leader in integral crystalline waterproofing products, stated that the Penetron System was successfully used for repairs at Campo Pequeno, a historical site located in Lisbon, Portugal.
Campo Pequeno, originally designed in 1892 by the architect António José Dias da Silva, was established as a bullfight arena located in what is now the center of the city. The building was designed in Neo-Arab fashion, with an area of 5,000 m2 and an arena diameter of 80m. It has since been extensively renovated and has re-opened as a modern multi-use center. Bullfights continue to take place typically once or twice a week during peak tourist seasons. During the rest of the year, this location is commonly used for concerts and other forms of entertainment.
The masonry building of the Campo Pequeno required extensive repairs and renovations. A large basement was added to provide an extended commercial area and parking. Over 1,000 m2 of the concrete walls suffered water leaks. After the completion of several tests, Penetron was selected as the ideal solution to solve this water problem.
Based on Long Island, New York, ICS Penetron International is a leading manufacturer of integral crystalline waterproofing products with a sales and service network that extends across more than 60 countries.
