Watertight Concrete

Concrete stands as one of the most utilized materials globally and remains a cornerstone of modern building construction. For those engaged in structural waterproofing, possessing comprehensive knowledge of concrete specification and application is essential. To meet this need, we've developed a one-day workshop aimed at enriching candidates' understanding within the realm of waterproofing. This workshop covers critical areas such as joint preparation, common defects, and potential remediation options. 

Open to both members and non-members, our course equips participants with the confidence to navigate their responsibilities when working with various types of concrete and the associated implications.
