Commercial Waterproofing Design & Installation

Timberwise can take full responsibility for the design and liability for the basement waterproofing design in your building project. We design and implement waterproofing systems in line with guidelines set out in BS 8102 2009. Our systems also meet or exceed the guidance set out by in NHBC chapter 5.4 and Local Authority Building Control (LABC) guidelines.

There are different Waterproofing types to consider:

  • Type A: Barrier Protection (External, Sandwiched or Internal)
  • Type B: Structurally Integral Protection (Usually to the relevant British Standard and of reinforced concrete structure) (BS 8007 and BS 8110)
  • Type C: Drained Protection (Cavity Drain Membranes and Construction Drained Cavities)

For more information on the different waterproofing types visit our structural waterproofing page.

Although the general principles contained within the BS 8102 2009 code have been maintained, there are several key changes and additional points that should not be overlooked.

One key point is contained within section 4.2, The design Team, the code recommends:

A waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team so that an integrated waterproofing solution is created.”

BS 8102 Waterproofing Regulations

Shortly before the end of 2009 the document relating to the waterproofing of structures below ground, BS8102 1990, was amended and revised to come to be BS8102 2009 Code of Practice for Protection of Structures Against Water from the Ground. This document is without question ‘the bible’ for any person involved in a waterproofing project and continues to be used effectively by professional witnesses in instances of dispute to convict dangerous designs.
