Basement Tanking Design

Course Overview

Residential basements are now a popular building design feature due to limited space, particularly around the inner suburban environment. Basements require early planning and an in-depth understanding of the principles of waterproofing for these structures to survive and remain serviceable for their intended life span.

In this webinar, we will you to develop the necessary strategies to waterproof basements successfully. We will discuss and explain –

• habitable and non-habitable designs

• water tables (natural & perched)

• hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic installations

• the differences between blindside, positive, negative side tanking; and

• how to integrate drainage.

We close off the webinar by introducing attendees to selecting a variety of alternative membrane systems based on a risk vs cost analysis.

Main Takeaways

• Learn the Mandatory compliance requirements to NCC for basement construction

• Habitable vs non-habitable designs

• Site assessment, risk analysis & OH&S requirements

• Hydrostatic vs non-hydrostatic pressure

• Positive, negative and blindside membranes

• Membrane system selection.

About the Trainer – Byron Landeryou – Waterproof Awareness
Byron Landeryou started out ‘on the tools’ as a wall and floor tiler and under-tile waterproofer. After 13 years at the coal-face of construction he discovered a passion for teaching. He soon scored a sessional teaching role with Holmesglen TAFE, followed by a full-time role with Melbourne Polytechnic where he invested 4 years teaching the wall/floor tiling and construction waterproofing sectors. Since then, Byron has held teaching roles with Master Builders Victoria (MBAV) and Master Builders South Australia (MBAS) where he has assisted in the course development for internal, external and below ground waterproofing. He now runs technical waterproofing webinars that focus on fundamental waterproofing mistakes. His point of difference is his ability to teach building professionals how to design and complete jobs in a way that incorporate the relevant codes, standards and manufacturers’ specifications as his license agreement with Standards Australia allows him to reference the relevant standards. Byron is a qualified Cert IV teacher who is driven to lift the calibre of the industry through improving the education around waterproofing.
