Course Overview                  

When it comes to the construction of balconies, it is well known that waterproofing issues are the most common cause of their failure.


In this webinar we break down the key elements of waterproofing balconies. We simplify the critical National Construction Code and AS4654 requirements related to balcony construction compliance to help you minimize the risk of balcony failure and achieve long-term success. We expand the issue beyond balconies, covering Australia’s ‘leaky building syndrome’ using real-life case studies.


Main Takeaways

  • The common mistakes behind balconies’ failures – including architectural design faults
  • Membrane selection, correct membrane termination, drainage selection, movement types
  • Learn how to develop a ‘scope of works’
  • The costs of defects
  • Compliance to NCC for balcony construction and where we are headed in Australia.
