Newton technical experts frequently deliver our double points RIBA Approved CPD on Waterproofing Design Strategies to the BS 8102:2009 ‘Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water From the Ground ’.
The CPD can be presented at your office, viewed at one of the RIBA CPD Roadshows, or watched online (please contact us for this service)
Newton Waterproofing Systems are also the first in our industry to offer a RIBA Approved Factory Tour. The tour offers specifiers a practical demonstration of the installation of Type A, B and C structural waterproofing systems, as well as educating designers on their obligations when specifying below ground waterproofing in accordance with BS 8102:2009.
“Everyone in the office found Newton’s CPD presentation incredibly informative and enlightening, helped by the fact that it was delivered by an expert speaker who engaged with the audience. Having the added benefit of a Newton Specialist Contractor present also gave a new dimension to the CPD, providing our staff with a welcome insight into the challenges of waterproofing installation on site.”

The seminar focuses on the different forms of structural waterproofing systems on the market and how to waterproof to achieve the environmental grades required within BS 8102:2009, including:
A focus on how combination waterproofing systems are specified for below ground environments on both new-build and existing structures
Section details discussion on how different waterproofing designs interface with below ground structures
Our RIBA Approved Factory Tour double points CPD is carried out at our head office and training facility in Tonbridge, Kent.
The objectives are to educate the specifier on their design obligations within the UK structural waterproofing industry in accordance with BS 8102:2009.
The Factory Tour is separated into two components.
The first part is the classroom section, which outlines the different types of waterproofing systems available, and how they can be used in conjunction to protect structures to the highest level.
The second part of the tour includes a practical demonstration of different waterproofing systems, an overview of the battery backup protection available, and how cementitious coatings can be spray-applied. The tour will conclude with a light buffet lunch with time for a Q & A session afterwards.
When it comes to below ground structures, failed waterproofing systems are often down to one or more of the following three factors:
Poor system installation
It is for this reason that industry guidelines such as British Standard 8102:2009 outline specific measures for combating these issues within the design scheme, as well as advising on simple remedial measures that can be implemented in the unlikely event that a defect still occurs.
Newton’s newest RIBA approved CPD therefore provides an overview of the design requirements according to current legislation, including both British Standards and NHBC guidelines in relation to waterproofing in the UK. This can be delivered in 45 minutes at your offices.
"Newton went out of their way to provide a CPD that was not only engaging and up-to-date, but that was specifically tailored to our relevant areas of work. The speaker was also extremely knowledgeable, and ensured that his answers accommodated both the most experienced and the newest members of our team in equal measure.
We will certainly be in touch with Newton in future to discuss our upcoming projects."
