Course Overview                  

Residential basements are now a popular building design feature due to limited space, particularly around the inner suburban environment. Basements require early planning and an in-depth understanding of the principles of waterproofing for these structures to survive and remain serviceable for their intended life span.


In this webinar, we will you to develop the necessary strategies to waterproof basements successfully. We will discuss and explain –

  • habitable and non-habitable designs,
  • water tables (natural & perched),
  • hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic installations,
  • the differences between blindside, positive, negative side tanking and
  • how to integrate drainage.


We close off the webinar by introducing attendees to selecting a variety of alternative membrane systems based on a risk vs cost analysis.
