Waterproofing Design Specialists

What is a Waterproofing Design Specialist?

A Waterproofing Design Specialist is an individual that holds a PCA recognised CSSW qualification. A CSSW qualification is a recognised professional qualification for individuals involved in diagnosing problems with water entering structures below ground level and who recommend design solutions.

They ensure that the basement waterproofing design for your commercial project is compliant with the British Standard BS8102:2009.

Why do you need a Waterproofing Design Specialist?

A welcome inclusion to the BS 8102 is that it now asks for a Waterproofing Designer/Specialist to be part of the design team at the outset to ensure that an integrated waterproofing solution is realised. Providing the design team with guidance that assists and influences the design, installation and future maintenance of the waterproofed structure, a Waterproofing Design Specialist will:

  • Be able to advise and be part of team
  • Take on design liability
  • Carry out Risk Assessments (sewers, gases, trees)
  • Investigate water table and surrounding areas
  • Consider accessibility, repairability and servicing
  • Design to the required environment grade for Basement uses (Grades 1-3)
  • Choose the correct method / Type of Waterproofing System (Type A, B or C)
