Our new RIBA approved CPD seminar – learn more about new build basement waterproofing!

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

As a leading supplier of waterproofing systems, Triton has introduced a second RIBA approved CPD seminar to its training programme. 

New build construction comprising watertight concrete basement

The new seminar – ‘New Build Basement Waterproofing’ – focuses on the specific requirements of waterproofing in new build, below ground structures. Incorporating the requirements of the recently revised Code of Practice BS 8102 (2009) it covers pre-build design considerations including the importance of site evaluation and risk assessment.

 It also explains how each type of waterproofing protection works and the benefits and disadvantages of each.  The standard defines these as Type A – barrier, Type B – Structurally integrated and Type C – drained. It also explains why and where each type (or a combination of each type) should be specified according to individual site requirements. These explanations are supported by case study examples of actual major new build works. Triton supplies and can offer advice on the application of all three systems.

Triton’s original RIBA approved CPD seminar – ‘Waterproofing Existing Basements’ has been updated and covers the use of similar methods of waterproofing and how they should be specified in refurbishment works. There is a particular focus on Type C drained systems which are suited for use in historic or conservation projects as little substrate preparation is required and the system can be easily stripped out.  Drained systems work by continuing to allow the water to enter the building, and then controlling it behind a membrane from where it is diverted to a suitable drainage point.

Triton’s training programme also includes courses on the specification and installation of cavity drained systems, concrete waterproofing systems and damp proofing and timber preservation.
