We are able to take on design liability and provide a lead in the design element of Structural Waterproofing and Construction Chemicals. Our Designs, Technical Reports and Specifications are backed up by a £10M Professional Indemnity insurance policy to ensure complete peace of mind for our clients. Our technicians undergo stringent training including CSSW training.
We take the project construction drawings and provide a complete set of working detail drawings which will produce a practicable design for waterproofing or other construction chemicals to be installed correctly to the structure. It is at this stage when any incompatibilities can be recognised and resolved.
We regularly attend design team meetings and provide recommendations and advice relating to the waterproofing strategy. When detailing the waterproofing design, we liaise between architect, engineer, client and contractor to ensure the design is sufficient and practical.
At FIS we are working hard on becoming fully BIM compliant and are currently working with the RIBA to finalise a full set of BIM objects. These will be available on the RIBA product selector shortly.
