We believe that waterproofing is best defined as the collection redirection and drainage of water. It is not merely the selection and installation of waterproofing membranes and sealants. Using this definition we believe that the priority is the development of flow paths and drainage layers when looking at new building design. Similarly we look for the presence or absence of these critical elements when analysing water penetration problems in existing buildings.
Our philosophy is to stick with what we do best which is to apply this definition of waterproofing to new building design and analysis of existing building waterproofing problems.
Accordingly we do not get involved in general building defects or project management. This enables us to focus on the essential function of good waterproofing design in peer review and methodical fact based analysis for remedying water penetration problems.
