Principles of External Waterproofing to British Standard 8102:2009
Type A waterproofing is a form of “barrier protection” applied to either the internal or external surface of a below-ground structure in order to resist the pressure of water trying to enter the building. However, there are a wide range of different Type A products available on the market, and the correct choice is dependent on a number of factors. With so many aspects to consider, this CPD aims to provide attendees with a guide to the most pertinent and relevant considerations when specifying Type A waterproofing. By the end of the presentation you should have a greater understanding of:
- How to distinguish between Type A waterproofing and other forms of waterproofing
- What recommendations are given by BS 8102:2009 regarding Type A waterproofing
- How to distinguish between the different kinds of Type A membranes and their main benefits/drawbacks
- How important aspects such as the method of construction will impact the Type A waterproofing
- How to avoid common mistakes that have lead to historic failures in Type A systems

Achieving Continuity in Concrete Waterproofing to British Standard 8102:2009
Type B waterproofing is the predominant form of water resistance where the structure itself is designed and constructed to be integrally waterproof. As an essential form of waterproofing protection, this CPD considers the most relevant points to consider in waterproofing a concrete structure. This includes: the guidance and requirements offered by BS 8102:2009, the ‘Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water From the Ground’ for Type B waterproofing; how to ensure that your below-ground structure is watertight, using some of the predominant waterproofing products available in the UK; and the techniques and aspects to pay attention to in order to maintain the continuity of your Type B waterproofing. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- How to distinguish between 'Type B' waterproofing and other forms of waterproofing
- Recommendations given by BS 8102:2009 regarding Type B waterproofing
- What the predominant types of Type B waterproofing products in the UK are
- How to maintain continuity between your waterproofing elements
- How best to protect against potentially costly and damaging waterproofing failures
