The Best Design Philosophy for continuity of waterproofing systems from Delta

  • 6 Aug 2020

A Waterproofing Designer’s philosophy defines what they wish to accomplish in the design of their waterproofing system and which principles they will use to do so, as Delta Membranes explain here.

Identifying a robust and suitable design philosophy is an important aspect when designing a continuous system, as this will not only directly impact how users install the system but also future maintenance, which will directly impact on the property owner.

Successful waterproofing installations will offer a life cycle to equal and beyond current expectations.

Effective communication is crucial to the successful completion of any construction project, waterproofing systems often being a critical component.

Poor communication can result in misunderstandings, systems not being installed effectively and ultimately failed systems.

A waterproofing designer’s focus should be on a life-cycle oriented design, addressing life-cycle concepts and methods, deterioration and damage evaluation, life-cycle performance indicators, inspection and maintenance procedures all implemented to work in harmony.

A Delta technical meeting

BS8102:2009 Code of Practice for the protection of below ground structures against water from the ground, provides guidance on the methods which should be adopted to deal with and prevent the entry of water from the ground into a structure that is below ground level.

It is widely referred to and used in below ground waterproofing with reference to:

 – Adoption of a design team

 – Water table classification

 – Defects and remedial measures

Delta’s Design and Build Philosophy is quality driven, working with architects and trades alike, putting at the forefront construction considerations to ensure buildability, functionality and maintainability.

The result of this single approach is a consistent, complete and quality design that is hard to equal.

In a world of hasty construction that neglects attention to detail, we take pride in our passion to improve standards within the industry to develop solutions and successful installations which offer a life cycle to equal and beyond current expectations.

If you have questions about a project, product or applications, think your project may require a new approach or wonder if your waterproofing system is working as it is supposed to, then contact Delta’s technical team; this can be done via email, phone or using a contact us form on its website.
