The 3 Benefits to Working with a Waterproofing Design Specialist

9 February 2018


For anybody involved with a waterproofing project the BS 8102 code of practice is a must read! The principles contained within the BS 8102 code of practice are fundamental to creating an integrated waterproofing solution that meets the required British Standards. One of the key messages contained within the code is that a “Waterproofing Design Specialist” needs to be included in the design team from the outset of the project.

So, what is a Waterproofing Design Specialist and how can you benefit from using one…

  1. You stay compliant

When things go wrong on large scale commercial projects and lawsuits start flying, the first thing the courts will look at is whether the project complied with relevant codes. By using a Waterproofing Design Specialist to work on the design of your waterproofing system you are choosing to use a dedicated waterproofing professional who will ensure that your waterproofing project is compliant with British Standard BS8102:2009.

  1. You are not liable

By working with a Waterproofing Design Specialist as part of the design team, it is their responsibility to provide your team with guidance that assists and influences the design, installation and future maintenance of the waterproofed structure. It is the Waterproofing Design Specialist who takes on the design liability not yourselves.

  1. You are guaranteed

For your extra peace of mind, any specialist work carried out should be covered by a long-term guarantee meaning you are protected from inadequate works.
