Building Foundation Waterproofing

The Problem

Large scale building required below ground foundations and basement walls waterproofing and sealing prior to earthworks backfill. The structure required water proofing and sealing to exterior retaining and basement walls to prevent water ingress and seepage.

The Solution

As ARS were included in the project specification from inception, works were done adjacent to and in tandem with construction. The masonry walls were first treated with a waterproof render to seal the porous brickwork, then applied with WetSuit® seam seal and WetSuit® parts 1 & 2. The walls were subsequently back filled and construction continued..

The Result

Seamless application of Wetsuit provided a complete monolithic cover including seams and points of penetration such as pipework and services, ensuring protection against the surrounding soil water table. As well as protecting from water ingress this ensured protection against concrete cancer and masonry degredation. This in turn contributes to the stability of the footings and building long term lifespan.
