PENETRON Works Fast at Brigham & Women’s Hospital
Date:5/15/2017

With a hospital’s tight schedule and over a quarter million square feet of flooring in need of a moisture mitigation solution, PENETRON Specialty Products provided a solution. The new wing of Brigham and Women’s Hospital has opened on schedule – with a durable and seamless floor.

Formed in 1980 with the merger of three Harvard Medical School teaching hospitals - the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, the Robert Breck Brigham Hospital and the Boston Hospital for Women – the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) includes 150 outpatient practices with over 1,200 physicians. BWH serves patients from New England, across the USA, and 120 countries around the world. BWH is top-ranked in specialty areas including cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, gynecology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, and rheumatology.

The Building for Transformative Medicine, part of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), is a new state-of-the-art research and clinical space in Boston, MA. The $475 million project needed a timely and effective solution for over 280,000 square feet (26,000 m2) of new flooring. PSP was tapped for a solution.

“The project specs called for a vapor mitigation solution – quickly,” explains John Mitchell, PSP Project Manager. “The construction schedule was very tight, which meant the floor substrate wouldn't be dry soon enough to put down the finish flooring system.”

Normally, new concrete floors need about 28 days to cure, which was not an option with the BWH project. PSP proposed reducing the wait time to only five days with an application of VB 225. This vapor mitigation system is specially formulated to prevent floor failures on concrete substrates containing elevated levels of moisture vapor emission.

In addition to VB 225, PRIMER STX 100, a bonding agent, was used to prepare the floors for the subsequent layer of LEVELINE 15, a self-leveling underlayment that provided a level and flat surface prior to the installation of the final flooring, a Nora rubber flooring system.

“Typical for a hospital facility, the Building for Transformative Medicine at BWH encompasses large high-traffic areas,” adds Robert Baumeister, PSP Product Specialist. “The combination of the VB 225 moisture mitigation system and our LEVELINE self-leveling underlayment provided an optimal solution – and also helped keep the project timeline intact.”

The PENETRON Group is a leading manufacturer of specialty construction products for concrete waterproofing, concrete repairs and floor preparation systems. The Group operates through a global network, offering support to the design and construction community through its regional offices, representatives and distribution channels.
