DRACO waterproofing systems have been successfully protecting family buildings, business buildings and hospitals, as well as tourist facilities for many years. Some of them are real jewel of tourist offer on the entire Adriatic.
So, this time we can proudly emphasize that we take part in the construction of the new hotel gem of the city of Split, Hotel Ambasador. It is located on the site of an old hotel opened in 1937. The new owner of the hotel is Mr. Alex Birckenstock, who is specialized in the production of anatomic footwear adored by numerous world stars. The main hotel designer is architect Neno Kezić.
The new hotel Ambassador will have four stars and 101 accommodation units. On the third floor will be a swimming pool, night club as well as meeting room, spa and gym. The facade will be covered with perforated stone and the windows will have wooden frames.
At the very beginning DRACO engineers had a very difficult task — to catch up with the waterproofing of complex foundation where the base plate was located two floors beneath the sea surface. For the waterproofing, it was chosen ULTRASEAL XP system with WATERSTOP XP sealing tapes. It’s about waterproofing based on active polymers that provide protection of the object under the sea conditions. In the next stages of construction, the plan is also to waterproof the other layers of the structure.
Mr. Kezić says, “We want the quality that will last, and don’t want someone to tell us 10 years later that we have built such a hotel just because it was then in fashion.” Therefore, we are even more proud of the trust given to us by investors.
We are so proud!
