This seminar analyses the different grades of use in accordance with BS 8102 - 2022 Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water Ingress. Considers the various solutions of waterproofing both above and below ground available to the specifier.
- Overview of updated BS 8102:2022
- Satisfying the 3 grades of use in accordance with BS 8102:2022
- Protection of structures against water from the ground
- Importance of sustainability in construction
Provides an awareness of the underlying contributors that lead to the deterioration of reinforced concrete. It also seeks to look at examples of and explain the primary cause of distress, gives guidance in selecting appropriate repair and remedial strategies and looks finally at modern material technologies. This includes repair mortars, corrosion inhibitors and protective coatings.
This CPD provides typical problems associated with car park structures and product selection criteria. The different applications of a waterproofing system and the management and maintenance of structures in accordance with the ICE document. Industry standards will be discussed and some representative case studies of both refurbishment and new build structures in line with the new British and European Standard BS EN 1504 will be shown.
