What makes concrete watertight?

The Property Care Association (PCA) has developed a new training course for the structural waterproofing sector of the construction industry. The aim is to provide industry professionals and surveyors with a greater understanding of this complex heterogenous material and the provisions required to make concrete watertight.

The guidance provision in section 9 of BS 8102 highlights the requirements through all stages of the concrete making process, to form the Type B structurally integral concrete protection preventing ingress of water. 

This training covers the following areas: 

  • Concrete Materials and suppliers 
  • Concrete placement 
  • Defect remediation
  • Responsibilities

The outcome is to ensure that attendees are equipped to interpret the structural engineer’s concrete strength and mix design requirements. Enabling them to specify an effective methodology solution for a Type B structurally integral watertight solution.

Having personally attended this course I recommend it will be of significant benefit to all involved in providing waterproofing solutions, concrete specifiers and other construction professionals that engage in placing watertight concrete below ground.

For further details about the next course taking place on 12 September 2024, click the button below.
