Together we build the future Go-To waterproofing knowledge platform
based on User Engagement & Reality
Managing a construction site is complicated. Many times things should have been finished "yesterday" and there is rarely time to dive deeper into the details of the matter - especially not when it comes to waterproofing.
But structural waterproofing is very much about details, and if you miss out, you very often will be called back in again.
In this membership we deal with structural waterproofing from a practical perspective.
The tools we make are focussed on finding the "traps" in the spec and making it easier for the workers to understand the task - because after all - the final quality will never exceed the skills level of the worker.
FOR ARCHITECTS & ENGINEERS
90% of all waterproofing specs are made by people that one way or the other represent waterproofing products. In other words, the specs are made by salespeople - and quite naturally, any salesperson has got interests that goes before those of the structure.
WaterproofingPILOT.com is focussing strongly on the interests of the building - only.
This membership aims to enable architects and engineers to take charge of the waterproofing - and to keep it that way - hence delivering a better and more qualified product to the client.
Structural waterproofing fails because of 3 things:UnderKillOverKillIndifference
1. THE MOTHER OF ALL WATERPROOFING ERRORS
- is "Lack of Qualifications" somewhere during the process.
32+ years in the waterproofing business have taught us that the structural waterproofing skills level generally is low.
2. SOME ATTEMPT TO SAVE - BUT RISK PAYING TWICE
Budgets are tight. And especially on the job site, people are looking for ways to cut expenses.
But we have learned that saving a cent here and there increases the risk of paying double instead. (Bare in mind that an average waterproofing repair job costs €10.000).
3. TIME SCHEDULE INTERFERENCE
The dark horse in most waterproofing is:
How much time will it take?
Usually, it takes much longer than expected, which will lead to early pressure on the entire project timetable.
4. EXPENSIVE AND POOR
Many solutions based on product supplier recommendations risk being simultaneously too expensive and insufficient.
The reason for this is quite natural. Generic, pre-made solutions are based on business interests and competition strategies over the 1:1 needs of the actual structure.
5. INITIATING STRESS
Stress amongst job-site managers is very common and very costly for the company. That's why we focus a lot on helping the parties involved in the waterproofing process to stay as far away from stress initiators as possible.
6. HURTING THE BOTTOM LINE
All in all: poor structural waterproofing is harmful to the bottom line, and hence harmful to the ecosystem!
So, if we sincerely mean all the talk about sustainability - then improving structural waterproofing is a "low-hanging fruit"!
THE WAY TO IMPROVE IS:
- to place the optimized Process Approach on the "Path of least resistance"
THE CONCEPT IS VERY SIMPLE
- and we'll be happy to DEMO this
in a short 20 minute web-meeting
...imagine everybody involved with your waterproofing project, from drawing board to jobsite
having the same perception, the same goal, and following the same method...
- what do you think it would do to the "failed-waterproofing-ratio"?
