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.
