STRUCTURAL DRAINAGE

The protection of structures from water is an important design factor in both new developments and the refurbishment of existing structures.

Structural waterproofing techniques can be used to resolve a range of problems from waterproofing damp basements, underground vaults, cellars and tunnels to protecting car park decks, water treatment plants and swimming pools.

Structural waterproofing is a vitally important part of design of infrastructure. Three major categories of use include:

Waterproofing to create a dry environment, such as

 

  • Domestic basements and cellars
  • Sub-terrain commercial premises
  • Tunnels
  • Underground transport systems

Waterproofing for protection against deterioration, such as

 

  • Highway structures
  • Multi-storey car park decks
  • External balconies
  • Decks
  • Roof terraces

Waterproofing for functionality, such as

 

  • Reservoirs
  • Water towers
  • Water and sewage treatment works

The use of specialist Geocomposites in these systems provides a direct value engineered design solution which provide a direct replacement to traditional primary resources such as aggregate based drainage.
