RIBA CPDs to boost your basement waterproofing knowledge

As a RIBA CPD Provider, Triton offers six RIBA approved seminars on various aspects of structural waterproofing, watertight concrete construction and green roof construction.

Choose from New Build & Existing Basement Waterproofing, New Build Basement Waterproofing, Waterproofing Concrete Structures below ground, Type B Waterproofing and Green Roofs/Living Roofs. A seminar on Structural Waterproofing using Cavity Drain Membranes is also offered as an online seminar and covers the scope of BS 8102 Code of Practice for Below Ground Waterproofing, waterproofing with drainage membranes, their use in existing and new build basements, how they are installed, the use of drainage and sump pumps and the importance of regular maintenance.

New Build and Existing Basement Waterproofing

This seminar will provide delegates with a greater awareness of BS 8102: 2009, the Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures. It details the grades of waterproofing required, the types of waterproofing systems available and the relevant standards and regulations that apply to both new build and retrofit projects.

New Build Basement Waterproofing

This seminar focuses on the specific requirements of waterproofing in new build applications. Focusing on the requirements of BS 8102 (2009) it covers design philosophy and guidance on the site evaluation/risk assessment required at the outset of the project. It gives clear explanations of the types of waterproofing protection available and why each (or a combination) should be specified depending upon the individual project requirements.

Existing Basement Waterproofing

This seminar will appeal to architects involved in domestic, commercial and historic or conservation projects. It explains how cavity drain membrane systems differ from tanking systems by continuing to allow the water to enter the building, controlling it behind the membrane and diverting it to a suitable drainage point. Key benefits include the speed of installation achieved by eliminating the need for extensive substrate preparation.

Waterproofing Concrete Structures Below Ground

This seminar looks at the use of concrete in the construction industry and the systems available for waterproofing concrete as defined in BS8102 (2009). The seminar covers what concrete is, where it can be used and the benefits of using it.

Type B Waterproofing

This seminar looks at structurally integral Type B waterproofing as defined in BS 8102, the Code of Practice for protecting below ground structures from water from the ground. It covers design philosphy, site evaluation and risk assessment and then goes on to look at the systems offering Type B protection in more detail such as integral waterproofing additives, in depth crystalline concrete wterproofing admixtures and pre-formed waterstops. The presentation also covers remedial measures, all relevant standards and regulations and recent case studies. Reference is also made to Type B system components which are available as BIM (Building Information Modelling) objects and downloadable from the NBS National BIM Library.

Green Roofs/Living Roofs

This seminar focuses on the installation of living or green roofs to structures and explores their benefits, the design principles, construction processes and further considerations.
