Structural Waterproofing is the technical term used for the act of waterproofing any structure.

As defined by The British Standard 8102:2009, there are 3 different types of Structural Waterproofing: Type A, B and C.

Type A: Is a protective barrier to protect the structure against water ingress. ‘Type A’ is often applied to the external side of a structure.

Type B: This is a structurally integral protection which seals the joists and protrusions to provide a reinforced concrete structure which is also water tight.

Type C: Is a drained protection type. It is applied internally to the structure to allow for a cavity drain waterproofing system.

A combination of these 3 specific structural waterproofing types and methods will provide a environment that meets the current standards and regulations.

Structures that may require structural waterproofing:

  • Underground carparks
  • Cellars
  • Basements
  • Tunnels

The British Standard 8102:2009 states that it recommends that new structures have the waterproofing design, construction process and structural designs. This is because they go hand-in-hand and often work together.

Alpine Surveys have decades of experience in undertaking accurate and detailed assessments and surveys. After every survey, we will provide an in-depth and detailed report along with recommendations for any potential remedial/rectification works.
