Robert McDonald presents the basics of competent waterproofing for construction in Australia.
Richly illustrated with failures, he discusses how with some care, competency and verification waterproofing can be delivered to the appropriate standards to ensure it does not fail prematurely in the life of the building. His experience in the discovery of defects and the specification and supervision of remedial works places him in a unique position to share his knowledge & experience with you. Appropriate specification and verification are the keys to success.
