Waterproofing Structural Concrete Decks over Occupied Space The sealing of structural concrete decks against the passage of liquid water is discussed and covers design considerations and basic components of a waterproofi.
Waterproofing Challenges - Hoffmann Architects Pointing the finger of blame, however, doesn't fix the problem. While field reports and photographs can serve as evidence at trial, the real benefit to on-site quality assurance lies in avoiding waterproof- ing failure in the first place. Submit- tal review and formalized inspection can make the difference between a successful waterproofing project and catastrophic failure. Special waterproofing Situations. Water Features. If a fountain sits above occupied space, even a small leak may be im-.
Facing The Challenges Of Plaza Deck Waterproofing Rehabilitation INTRODUCTION. Rehabilitation of older plaza decks over occupied spaces poses several challenges. Typically, plaza decks that are subject to rehabilitation were constructed years ago and do not include drainage composite or any provisions for proper subsurface drainage slope at the waterproofing mem brane layer. Correcting these deficiencies can result in increased system thickness and additional dead loads, making the rehabilitation a challenge. In addition, every plaza.
Exterior Tile Installation over Occupied Space DIYTileGuy The challenges of exterior tile installation, especially over occupied living space. Movement joints as well as mortar, waterproofing, and tile selections.
Exterior Installations of Tile and Stone Over Occupied Space and 15 Aug 2013 Currently, there are no provisions for bonding tile or stone directly to exterior roofs or decks over occupied space, or a wooden deck (over occupied space or not). These installations typically require that a drainage layer be placed between a non-bonded mortar bed and a pre-sloped substrate which must be covered with a primary roofing type waterproofing membrane. The primary roofing type waterproofing membrane, usually asphalt based or bituminous sheet
Waterproofing - BEST Contracting Services Between Slab Membrane. Originally installed when the building is constructed they can suffer from deterioration. To renew them requires removing the topping slab and the old waterproofing, adding new and replacing the topping slab. These membranes are usually found where there is occupied space below to area where the original membrane is installed, such as roof top parking or on plaza decks over offices or retail space.
The evolution of plaza waterproofing - Construction Specifier 7 Feb 2017 Non-stop increases in urban land costs have led to more efficient use of space by building owners. This includes not only building upward, but also downward. Waterproofed plazas over occupied underground facilities and roof terraces became popular ways of maximizing both horizontal and vertical space.
Split-slab waterproofing in high-load traffic environments 5 Jan 2013 Designers of commercial and institutional buildings in urban settings often work on constrained sites where the service areas exposed to weather or wash-down are located over occupied spaces below. While the requirements to protect these spaces from water intrusion are understood and documented, this is not the case for the wearing surface over the waterproofing system, especially when it comes to loading docks and other high-load traffic environments.
Waterproofing Deck over occupied Space Pro Construction Forum I am in the process of replacing a deck from the second floor. This is a bad construction from the beginning, which we discovered few years after purchasing the house. When the house was built apparently deck was installed such that 4'x6' section of it is over the occupied space, another words part of the lower level.
Does a Traffic bearing Membrane Constitute a Proper Waterproofing Depending on the grade and manufacturer, the total system thickness can range from 40 mils to over 120 mils. The thicker systems are typically used for high traffic areas such as ramps and drive aisles in parking garages. TBMs have been around for many years and have generally performed well as "waterproofing membranes" on parking decks and balconies. However, in recent years, the author has seen an increased use of TBMs as waterproofing over occupied spaces. In parking
An overview of waterproofing solutions - Construction Specifier 26 Nov 2014 Plaza decks over occupied spaces are waterproofed; the deck is technically not a roof. The manufacturers will make this distinction, because also typically waterproofing applications do not come with as complete a warranty coverage as do some roofing systems. Positive-side waterproofing. By creating a waterproof barrier on the side of applied hydrostatic pressure, positive-side waterproofing prevents water from entering the wall. For a foundation, this would be the
TECHNICAL BULLETIN #127 Regarding: Exterior Decks - Merkrete presloped substrate over an unoccupied space. It includes the coving of waterproofing up the wall into a reglet type flashing under the wall finish materials. This way rain draining down the wall will run onto the top surface of the tile, instead of behind it. Neither common TCNA Methods for exterior tile reference to cement board over a plywood substrate. While cement board over a plywood substrate is an exterior substrate we are often asked about, there is a lot of potential for failure.
Waterproofing Parking Deck Foundation Waterproofing Systems Plazas and roadways located over occupied space must first be waterproofed prior to the overburden and finishes being installed. As with any below grade waterproofing system the primary weaknesses are at the transitions and terminations. You can count on the CSI team for the expertise and experience to correctly apply below-grade waterproofing systems ranging from positive side waterproofing of exterior foundation walls to negative side waterproofing of interior foundations
