Current trends in commercial construction present unique challenges to designers, contractors and building owners when selecting a below-grade waterproofing strategy. Below-grade waterproofing in today’s fast-paced construction environment can be a challenge, and often there are no second chances to get it right. Manufacturers continue to introduce new products and systems with ever-evolving warranty requirements. Looking toward the future, designers and building owners must consider the effects of climate change and an increasing risk of flooding on a building’s performance. The speakers will discuss several trends in below-grade waterproofing in today’s market and how to tackle the associated challenges, including fast-track construction, new and changing warranties, and flood protection.
