Szolyd has begun work on the Quarters, located in Edmonton, |AB. The area extends from 97 street to 92 street, and will provide a range of market and affordable housing. The vision for the Quarters is a vibrant, healthy community with five distinct areas, each with it’s own character and identity. This community is structured around a unique linear park system running through each sector, providing a defining element for the greater community.
The microstructure of Ductal is completely closed and renders the material impermeable to almost any aggressive agent. These characteristics result in properties that give it superior durability. Water, the main carrier of these corrosion catalysts, can barely penetrate the UHPC matrix. This results in an excellent resistance to freeze-thaw, to exposure to sea water (penetration by chlorides), to sulfates, weak acids and carbonation. At only one inch, Ductal is completely waterproof.
