THREE PILLARS FOR AN EFFECTIVE WATERPROOFING SYSTEM FOR UNDERGROUND STRUCTURES

Building dry underground space is of primary concern to its owner. It provides a friendlier and safer environment to the user and reduced maintenance efforts and associated costs to the operator. Achieving dry underground structures for public use in public transit, vehicular tunnels but also for other non-private and private use is a multi stage process which requires close cooperation between owner, planning engineer and contractor. Three distinct elements, referred to as pillars have been identified in building dry underground space: compatibility of the waterproofing system, through planning which goes hand in hand with other engineering disciplines designing the structure, and skilled installation combined with a thorough inspection.
