Achieving Zero Excuse in Waterproofing Performance - Concrete Structures

29th - 30th October 2018 Ahmedabad & 2nd - 3rd November 2018 Kolkata

Course Description

Monsoon of 2018 is on the verge of getting over.
You have noticed many leakages during this monsoon. This needs to be attended
before on set of next monsoon of 2019.
Achieving effective waterproofing has remained all time elusive target to be achieved.
There are hundreds of waterproofing systems available in market with guaranties &
warranties. But the effectiveness or perfect work is always elusive.
On one side people have achieved excellence in structural design and construction.
They have made seemingly impossible things possible.
This is not the case with waterproofing. Old structures constructed with primitive
technologies display better waterproofing performance than today’s structures constructed
with advance techniques.
What is going wrong? Why this is happening? This two day programme will handle
all facets of waterproofing systems as per details given in Agenda.
 Faculty from Industry - Participants can relate to real life situation
 Course Covers Technical and managerial angles
 In depth overview of waterproofing subject from angles
 Participants will develop analytical mind set to handle waterproofing issues and
 achieve effective waterproofing solutions after attending this 2 days workshop
Who should attend
  •  Engineers working in Industrial Plants, Factories, Power Stations
  •  Engineers from Real Estate, Housing and Infra-Structure projects
  •  Engineers from Government, Development and Municipal authorities
