The National House Building Council (NHBC) recently developed a new Chapter as part of their below ground waterproofing recommendations: ‘Waterproofing of Basements and Other Below Ground Structures‘. The new Chapter is integral to the NHBC’s goal of continually raising standards and improving protection for homeowners.
Their video publicising the new recommendations was filmed recently, and Newton Waterproofing Systems were involved extensively in its production. We were delighted to welcome Paul Cribbens and Beattie Payne from the NHBC and the filming company Liquid Productions to our training facilities to film the installation of our waterproofing systems.
Stuart Tansey, our Training and Technical Manager, was on-hand to show how to correctly install the products, and Paul would then check his workmanship (Stuart passed with flying colours we’re told!). Meanwhile in our offices, Aimee Goodes was filmed designing technical drawings using AutoCAD. The video is presented by Mark Jones, Head of House-Building Standards for the NHBC, who recommends that the new guidelines are adopted at the earliest opportunity, prior to the re-launch of the NHBC Standards later in the year.
“This video explains the need for the new Chapter, provides an overview of the changes, and outlines what you need to do if you are designing or constructing basements” – Mark Jones, NHBC
Newton Waterproofing Systems thank NHBC greatly for involving them in this exciting project.
