Case Studies in Flood Resistance and Recoverability
A presentation based on live case studies at Edenside Barn and the BRE Flood House. Leak stopping, barrier system, pump and drainage membrane technologies traditionally used in below ground structural waterproofing are being adapted and re-delivered by Delta Membranes to provide effective flood solutions. Delta uses the principle of “joined up thinking” to ensure that all materials and products which provide the ingredients for a Delta flood solution are properly integrated to achieve desired results.
