High Performance Waterproofing Solutions for Shotcrete Foundations

This course will discuss the use of shotcrete for structural applications, specifically in below-grade foundation walls. While the use of shotcrete is proven to accelerate construction schedules up to 25%, experience has shown that there are risks associated with this method of concrete placement versus traditional cast-in-place walls. These risks include an increased incidence of voids within the wall, poorly consolidated concrete behind and around rebar installations and damage to traditional waterproofing systems associated with the shotcrete application itself. Each of these factors contribute to a challenging waterproofing project - one that can be completed successfully with a properly designed waterproofing system. During this session, we will cover the benefits and risks associated with shotcrete, how pre-applied waterproofing membrane systems should be designed for critical applications and the challenges that traditional waterproofing membranes face when used with shotcrete construction.

Architectural Paving Systems: Advancements in Surface Technologies and Finishes (print)

Not all concrete paving materials are created equal. To withstand harsh environments and heavy use with minimal color and surface wear, paving products should employ the latest technologies and manufacturing processes available. This will ensure that the architect, landscape architect, or engineer is specifying highly durable concrete pavers. Today, the range of color and finish options are greater than ever before, allowing the designer to explore creative options with a supportive manufacturer. This course explores how to recognize, design, and build with the highest quality concrete pavers available in the industry.
