Building Smart with Site and Foundation Drainage
Book your spot at BC Housing’s Site and Foundation Drainage seminar or webinar in May
Problems with foundation drainage and moisture can have many consequences, ranging from being a minor nuisance to serious structural damage or health issues. These issues can be difficult to diagnose as well as challenging and expensive to remediate. However, you can prevent these problems by incorporating best practices into the original design, construction, and site grading of the building.
There is also a trend towards maximizing the habitable square footage of new developments, including more —and deeper — finished basements. This means that proper drainage for below-grade spaces has become more important to protect owners’ investments.
This half-day workshop, which will be of interest to builders, developers, designers, and building officials, will cover:
- Drainage design considerations
- Details and workmanship required for drainage elements
- Design and installation of building enclosure systems
- Maintenance of site and foundation drainage
- Post-construction remedial measures
This workshop was prepared in collaboration with industry stakeholders and consultants.
