The new British Standard for waterproofing was released on 31st March 2022, providing everyone with access to the updated version of BS 8102:2022. The newly titled Standard is the Code of Practice for the "Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water Ingress" and includes a wide number of revisions and updates to the previous 2009 version.
To help with educating construction professionals on the updates to the 2022 version of the Standard, Newton has created a new, RIBA-approved, double points, core curriculum CPD based on "Waterproofing Design Strategies to the New British Standard 8102:2022."
The new seminar directly replaces Newton's previous RIBA-approved CPD "Structural Waterproofing Design Strategies to BS 8102:2009" which was previously its most popular CPD with architects, contractors, designers and surveyors alike.
The CPD consists of a 45-minute seminar plus Q&A which can be delivered either at clients' premises, as an online webinar, or at Newton's training facility in Tonbridge, Kent.
As well as an explanation of the updates to the new 2022 version of the Standard, the presentation provides an overview of the modern methods which are available for protecting below ground structures from water, including:
- The different forms of structural waterproofing systems on the market and how to achieve the environmental grades outlined within BS 8102:2022.
- A focus on how combination waterproofing systems are specified in below-ground structures in order to achieve the desired environment.
The updated CPD is available for specifiers now. To book any of Newton's RIBA-approved seminars, click SEND MESSAGE opposite, or click VISIT SUPPLIER WEBSITE below and complete the online form.
