All structural waterproofing services are now delivered through CSSW.LONDON which is part of Property Care Consultants Ltd.
Where property is below ground (eg. basements) its very important that a CSSW structural waterproofing specialist is involved at the design stage.
As a CSSW qualified structural waterproofing specialist I work with architects, structural engineers and others as part of a design team ensuring that basements and other structures below ground are built with suitable waterproofing. This is a requirement of BS 8102:2009 Code of practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground.
The benefit of having and independent structural waterproofing specialist involved at design stage is that a suitable design may be presented for tender, rather than appointing a specialist contractor and being locked into their specification & products. Whilst costs at design stage may be higher, in most cases these costs are more than offset by reductions in the construction phase.
I also provide similar services when construction has already started and a warrantee company (eg. NHBC, LABC, Premier Guarantee etc.) stipulate that a structural waterproofing specialist is required to give an opinion. Although this is a little late in the day I enjoy the challenge of finding creative solutions.
Property Care Consultants provide consultancy for both refurbishment and new-build projects to protect the entire structure from water ingress.
As the CSSW Structural Waterproofing specialist I have completed projects ranging from small residential homes through to the basements structures of 11 story developments. A lot of this work takes place in London, but I have carried out projects in Northamptonshire, Wales etc. Projects have used all waterproofing systems including Type A waterproof barriers, Type B water resistant concrete & Type C cavity drained systems.
Some of the better known organisations I’ve worked with on structural waterproofing include: Linden Homes, St George (Berkley Group), Dandara.
