Atal take design responsibility for the waterproofing phase of the project from the initial design consultation with the Architect, Consulting Engineer, Contractor or all three, through to the design phase. This is complete with all necessary CAD drawings (including revisions) to produce a complete waterproofing strategy and specification.

The design team are Certified Surveyors in Structural Waterproofing (CSSW) qualified and work to the following design and best practice criteria:

  • The correct design strategy, and detailed specifications are provided.
  • The best in class quality performance products are used.
  • The right product selection to deliver the integrated design strategy and system specification.
  • Customer service and support is provided at design stage and on-site.
  • Warranty of the system performance is provided at completion.

However, one of the key factors above all others is essential, and it is set out in all of the following documents:

BS 8102:2009: Code of Practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground recommends;

4.2 “a waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team”

NHBC Chapter 5.4: Waterproofing of Basements and other below ground structures.

(Page 3 (a)(b) “waterproofing design shall be undertaken by suitably qualified persons, with CSSW qualification”
