Construction design professionals or waterproofing contractors have the opportunity and responsibility to influence the success of a blindside waterproofing job. Blindside waterproofing or pre-applied waterproofing is a below-grade waterproofing system applied prior to the building construction. Ensuring the waterproofing manufacturer reviews the results of the subsurface investigation will help to drive success.
Geotechnical engineers or engineering geologists perform geotechnical investigations to obtain information about the physical properties of soil and rock around a building site. The investigation’s findings will help to determine foundation design, construction and verification, before concealment.
A white paper prepared by Carlisle® Coatings & Waterproofing (CCW) waterproofing experts discusses what to look for in a geotechnical report, as well as other tips for getting blindside waterproofing right.
