When it comes to waterproofing, there’s no room for error. Proper design and specification of waterproofing systems are vital to ensure quality and complete protection.

That’s why we have integrated our waterproofing design service with the fundamentals of the RIBA Plan of Work, making it easier for architects to understand the processes involved and the services that they will receive at each stage.

Here at Newton Waterproofing, we’ve supported specifiers with our leading technical services since the introduction of structural waterproofing solutions, and now we offer a comprehensive service from initial consultations and design meetings through to site support and guaranteed installation by our nationwide network of approved contractors.

The Newton Plan of Work

Available in the new Design Service brochure, the new Newton Plan of Work explains how Levels 4 and 5 of the Design Service cover every part of the RIBA Plan of Work, from Stage 0 – Strategic Definition through to Stage 7 – Use.

Whilst Levels 1 to 3 of the Design Service are free and can be undertaken at any point during the Plan of Work, the design liability always remains with the specifier. By contrast, Levels 4 and 5 require a design contract and a bespoke quotation, meaning that Newton Waterproofing will take the design liability for the waterproofing aspect of the project.

The RIBA Plan of Work organises the process of briefing, designing, delivering, maintaining, operating, and using a building into eight stages. Using this framework as guidance, Newton is able to explain the Design Service offering when we act as the waterproofing design specialist on a project, with bespoke specifications backed by our PI insurance, design liability, and optional A-rated, insurance-backed guarantees.
