Cold Liquid Applied Waterproofing for Continual Professional Development (CPD)
Cold liquid applied waterproofing has become an increasingly popular flat-roofing solution for building owners, designers, and contractors. Likewise, the construction of podium decks, terraces and balconies and extending these beyond the building line has also increased in popularity. This increasing demand does not just sit within the residential market but includes public and commercial structures, along with the demand for better-quality construction.
Delta’s RIBA Approved “Cold Liquid Applied Waterproofing” CPD presentation introduces Architects/Designers/Specifiers with a technical insight to approaches to structural waterproofing utilising cold liquid applied systems which are available within the construction industry. The presentation focuses on creating a waterproofing solution which meets British Standard BS 8102:2022, the code of practice for the waterproofing industry and ensuring designs conform. Topics include: the importance of specifying a suitable continuous waterproofing solution, design considerations, build ups suitable for cold applied systems and the associated components and detailing for this. The seminar concludes with some helpful guidance.
As manufacturers of quality systems, it is imperative to work with quality installation companies. At Delta, we pride ourselves that we have built a team of highly qualified, reliable approved Registered Installers who operate throughout the UK, who specialise across our sector.
Our RIBA approved CPD Seminar, is a 45-minute presentation which offers delegates an informative question & answer session which can be held: either at your offices, online, or at Delta’s dedicated training facility at our head office in Epping, Essex.
This comprehensive session will cover:
Important considerations for successful waterproofing design:
- Types and forms of construction
- Design principles
- Different usage of structures
- Waterproofing types
- Standards and Regulations
- Fire regulations and risk
- Codes of Practices and Guidance Documents
- Selection of appropriate products
From a waterproofing design point of view, designing a robust waterproofing scheme is no simple matter.
Having considered external factors, a waterproofing designer also needs to consider the use of the proposed structure, what materials are going to be used and that the solution will remain impervious to water ingress for the service life of the structure.
BS8102:2022 has been revised to focus on continuous approaches to waterproofing, whilst only small changes, reflect the requirement for a continuous waterproofing solution and for design requirements to encompass ground water encountered and expected to be encountered. References to structural elements, both in new and existing have been incorporated. Including heritage and listed buildings along with specific reference to podium decks and buried roofs.
The CPD seminar introduces the various types of cold liquid applied waterproofing systems currently utilised within the construction industry. The importance of structure assessment and common defects are highlighted; along with an overview of the various types of substrates build ups suitable for cold applied liquid applied systems. Balconies and green roof applications are considered; along with considerations for selecting the correct system for the type of roof and the associated components and detailing for this. The seminar concludes with a question-and-answer session.
