Case study

Terraces in Cochoa

It is often rightly said that all projects are different, but in the case of the Cochoa Terraces located in Viña del Mar in Chile, many factors come together to ensure that we the project is unique and the case study is clear. First of all, the impressive views from the terraces are the result of being situated on a very steep slope, which means that all flats have a large terrace and sea views. In addition, the building is crowned by a large communal swimming pool.

Everything in the complex is large in proportion, the apartments, the communal services and finally the parking spaces. Because Chile is located in an area of high seismic activity, buildings are constructed taking into account the structural needs required by earthquakes, especially in a work located on a hillside or ravine theoretically more prone to landslides or earthquakes. Therefore, for the complexity and requirements of the project, different construction solutions and top quality materials were applied. Specifically for the waterproofing of the terraces, 13,000sqm of DESMOPOL, Tecnopol’s single-component polyurethane membrane, were used.
