Concept Design: Why is early engagement crucial in Waterproofing Design?

Navigating through the initial stages of a construction project, particularly ones involving waterproofing and gas protection, can be a labyrinth. This is where Premcrete steps in. But how exactly can we support your project from the early stages? The answer lies in three integral steps: conducting a Feasibility Study, offering Concept Design and Budget Quotations, and providing Sustainable Design Concept Solutions.

Feasibility Study – Can Your Project Overcome Its Challenges?

  • Every project begins with a fundamental question: is it feasible? Our skilled design team is equipped to provide support at the earliest RIBA stage. We provide high-level advice and feasibility reports that help architects, technical teams, and structural engineers discern the viability of their project.
  • The challenges that arise at interfaces, underground tunnels, and determining if the project is feasible, are all crucial junctures. By providing detailed insight, we aim to convert potential stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

Concept Design and Budget Quotations – What Does Your Project Require?

  • We understand that each project is unique. Consequently, our team is committed to offering customised support at an early stage in the project, including providing a robust waterproofing strategy and identifying the Grades of waterproofing necessary for your specific project.
  • The review of site investigation reports is a critical step in early-stage project planning. Identifying potential risks such as ground gases, hydrocarbons, contaminated soil, and flood risks are paramount to ensuring a successful outcome.

Sustainable Design Concepts Solutions – How Can Your Project Be More Sustainable?

  • We are steadfast in our commitment to sustainability. We work closely with you to review your design and provide advice on the most sustainable construction methods and system combinations that meet your waterproofing grade requirements.
  • One of our innovative approaches includes reducing the cement content in projects. This not only reduces the project’s carbon footprint but can also lead to substantial cost savings without compromising on quality.

Detailed Take-offs – How Precise is Your Project’s Planning?

  • Our commitment to support you extends to detailed take-offs, which is vital in early project planning. With our proficiency in construction, we’re able to provide a comprehensive guide as to determine the amount of materials needed for your project, ensuring you only invest in what’s necessary. This reduces waste, supports your budgeting process, and ensures seamless project execution. It’s our unique way of incorporating sustainability into every step of your construction project, while also aiding in effective cost management. Trust in Premcrete’s expert guidance for a detailed take-off.
