Waterproofing for Ala Moana Pool Deck in Hawaii
- March 4th, 2021 /
- Project Profile
Honolulu’s landmark hotel Ala Moana is a short walk to the Pacific Ocean and Hawaiian Convention Center with sweeping views across the city, sea and mountains.
The hotel needed an updated coating on the existing pool deck. A low odor system was a must as the hotel would be open during the pool deck renovation.
The concrete needed to be waterproofed and have a decorative look. Trinity ERD expert building envelope consultant and Central Pacific Specialty Contractors (CPSC) worked on this commercial project.
CPSC installed Westcoat’s MACoat Custom Finish waterproofing system with a Moisture Vapor Barrier (MVB). The EC-15 MVB is applied to prepped concrete to reduce the moisture emission rate. This one coat application is compatible with most Westcoat flooring systems.
The MACoat Custom Finish consisted of large sweeping bands in two contrasting colors.

ADVANTAGES OF MACOAT
The MACoat™ System is mainly used on elevated concrete and non-fire-rated plywood walking decks, while ALX™ is designed for use on plywood. Both systems can be installed over old systems to provide an excellent method for the rehabilitation of problem surfaces.
