Paul Evans, CSRT and CSSW Surveyor
As an original member of the PCA Waterproofing Design Specialist (WDS) Register, Paul, along with colleague David Morton, is one of the few CSSW Surveyors on the PCA WDS Register.
BS8102:2009 – ‘Code of Practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground’ – recommends that a specialist in waterproofing is included in the design team for any structure where usable space is fully or partly below the ground level. 4.2 code states that: “A waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team so that an integrated waterproofing solution is created”.
