Detailing the Preprufe 160R Waterproofing
‘No leaks, I promise’ said Bill Brown.
Waterproofing Penetrations of the Membrane
Bill Brown’s team prides themselves on doing excellent work. Excellent work includes taking care of all of the details. When there is ground water and 500 psf of hydrostatic pressure, detail matters.
The reinforcing steel is held at least two inches away from the waterproofing and wood forms by threaded rods, which much penetrate the Preprufe 160R (white membrane). Consequently, these penetrations must be detailed to ensure no water can get through to the concrete.
Jorge ensured each of the ~40 penetrations were detailed correctly, either by himself or his team.
