Date: October 2, 2019

Location: 231 W Hampton Pl, Capitol Heights, MD 20743

The IIBEC Mid-Atlantic Chapter educational seminar scheduled for October 2, 2019 is quickly approaching. As always it should prove to be a stimulating and informative gathering.


1.       BELOW-GRADE WATERPROOFING - INITIATING A SUCCESSFUL PROCESS

Presenter: Mark Franciosi, Technical Service Manager - Americas - GCP Applied Technologies

The process of selecting an appropriate below-grade waterproofing system for a particular project extends well beyond choosing a membrane manufacturer and product, and the initial steps in such a process provide considerable opportunity to improve the probability of success.  This course will provide the building enclosure consultant with insight related to these initial steps, including:

2.      INTERIOR WATERPROOFING FUNDAMENTALS FOR THE BUILDING ENCLOSURE CONSULTANT

Presenter: Jay Sekel, P.E., Senior Consulting Engineer – Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc.

Building enclosure consultants are experienced in designing and evaluating building enclosure roofing and waterproofing systems.  However, many buildings have interior environmental conditions that demand robust interior waterproofing and it is not uncommon for building enclosure consultants to be called upon to support their clients in this context.  Building enclosure consultants must draw on their experience with roofing and waterproofing systems and have a basic understanding of flooring systems to help their clients with interior waterproofing issues.  This presentation will review how interior waterproofing differs from exterior waterproofing and discuss fundamental interior waterproofing applications, systems, and considerations.
 
3.      CHEMICAL GROUT IN BELOW-GRADE WATERPROOFING - WHAT THE BUILDING ENCLOSURE CONSULTANT SHOULD KNOW

Presenters: Monica M. Rourke, FICRI, Waterproofing & Injection Systems – Underground Tunneling Technology Manager (Mapei, Inc.)

                   John Lukas, Business Development Leader – Building Envelope (Mapei, Inc.)

The applications of chemical grouting have changed over the last 20 years with regards to building enclosure waterproofing.  The presentation will focus on a description of chemical grouts, their characteristics and properties and illustrate traditional methods used to mitigate water leakage through concrete structures.  The presentation will include case studies which will show combination applications; creation of a membrane under a slab via chemical injection and focus on the “Means and Methods” approach to not just mitigating water via spot injection but how to utilize chemical grout injection to create “active” waterproofing systems and grout curtains.

4.        MASONRY PRESERVATION OF BUILDING FACADES - THE LONG-TERM APPROACH (IT'S A PROCESS)

Presenters:  Erik Valentino, Vice President (Masonry Preservation Services, Inc.)

                   Jeffrey L. Erdly, CEO and Founder (Masonry Preservation Services, Inc.)

The process of masonry preservation of existing building façades is becoming a key component of conserving our nation’s heritage. Accomplishing the task is a challenging procedure with many pitfalls, but paths for success are available if several key concepts are understood & implemented.  The discussions of this big picture presentation will include failure assessment, design-restore team development, option review, prioritization, long & short-term approaches, managing unsafe conditions, pilot & repair phasing, mockups, access and repair of terra cotta, stone & brick buildings.
