Seminar
Below Ground Waterproofing in Accordance with BS 8102 2009
This CPD covers the British Standards “BS 8102 2009 - Code of practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground”. It will discuss all the aspects of below ground waterproofing required to ensure a successful design and installation. Topics covered include types of waterproofing materials available, the grades that the structure must conform to, remedial measures in the context of a failure, and Heath and Safety requirements. The presentation will also include a case study. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
-The BS 8102 2009 and other complimentary documents
- How the water table shall impact the overall design
- How to select the correct waterproofing system given the proposed design
- The forces imposed on the structure and the implications of these forces on the designs
- The design and preparation requirements of new and remedial systems
- The importance of having approved and insured contractors carrying out the works

Seminar
Moisture Mitigation: Controlling Water Vapour in Concrete Floors
This CPD looks at moisture mitigation for concrete floors prior to receiving non-breathable flooring finishes, such as resin or vinyl. The use of an appropriate vapour control layer can prevent flooring failures caused by high levels of moisture and alkalinity forming at the top surface of the concrete. The CPD covers the causes of moisture related problems in floors, in both new construction, and refurbishment scenarios, and looks at the floor build-ups that can be used over a moisture mitigation system, including high performance self-levelling screeds. This CPD will help you to understand the following topics:
- The different causes of moisture in concrete floors
- How water vapour can damage various floor finishes
- How water vapour problems can be eliminated
- The importance of concrete testing and analysis
- Surface preparation and application
- Floor build-ups, screeds and floor finishes available
