What is the BS8102 technical overview?
BS8102 is the ‘Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water Ingress’. You must make sure you comply with the new British Standard for basement waterproofing BS8102:2022.
It’s been completely revised.
It is far more comprehensive.
The Standard gives recommendations and guidance on best practice. It is not a statutory requirement that the code is followed, however it is normally referred to in specifications, contracts and as a reference document in legal disputes.
Ian MacLennan was one of the small team of experts from all aspects of the basement waterproofing and construction industry who reviewed and revised the 2009 BS8102.
The committee consisted of representatives from the major waterproofing industry manufacturers, installers, consultants, insurers, engineers, and the concrete society.
Standards are revised or renewed when a case is made by stakeholders which is accepted by BSI. The case made for this revision centred around table 2 and the confusion with grades of waterproofing which came with examples which were then used as design criteria.
Not complying can lead to liability and financial or reputational loss. Do you want to know what has changed and how to comply? Hear it directly from one of the authors of the revision our MD Ian MacLennan.
