Balconies – To Fail or Not to Fail?

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.

About the Trainer – Byron Landeryou – Waterproof Awareness
Byron Landeryou started out ‘on the tools’ as a wall and floor tiler and under-tile waterproofer. After 13 years at the coal-face of construction he discovered a passion for teaching. He soon scored a sessional teaching role with Holmesglen TAFE, followed by a full-time role with Melbourne Polytechnic where he invested 4 years teaching the wall/floor tiling and construction waterproofing sectors. Since then, Byron has held teaching roles with Master Builders Victoria (MBAV) and Master Builders South Australia (MBAS) where he has assisted in the course development for internal, external and below ground waterproofing. He now runs technical waterproofing webinars that focus on fundamental waterproofing mistakes. His point of difference is his ability to teach building professionals how to design and complete jobs in a way that incorporate the relevant codes, standards and manufacturers’ specifications as his license agreement with Standards Australia allows him to reference the relevant standards. Byron is a qualified Cert IV teacher who is driven to lift the calibre of the industry through improving the education around waterproofing.
