About the Topic:

Use of integral crystalline waterproofing systems for below-grade concrete is one of the waterproofing options available, especially when blind-side application is necessary. However, there are many considerations to be taken into account during the design and construction of these systems. This case study presentation discusses integral concrete waterproofing that was used for a large multi-tower development at False Creek. Subjects discussed include the following:

  • Systems research and options
  • Warranty considerations
  • Roles of the project team members
  • Design & construction
