Waterproofing In Buildings- Preventing Leaks And Lawsuits By Design
Full price: $134.00
Ross Taylor's presentation looks at the legal exposure of Architects to the increasing problem of water related defects in new buildings. Case studies of recent legal cases are reviewed, the causes of the problem analysed and the role of design identified. A back to basics approach to using first principles of water shedding and effective use of old fashioned things like flashings rather than just relying on chemicals is provided. Examples of time-proven good practice design detailing are discussed.
