|Project||Hotel complex with bitumen waterproofing|
|Location||2015 - Carinthia, Austria|
The baseplate was built in six sections with horizontal water stops; the joints between exterior walls and baseplate were tightened with metal strips; the primary water insulation layer is made of bitumen.
Soon after completion of the building works, water was observed in the floor construction and rising moisture on the inside walls of the basement.
TEXPLOR investigated the reasons for the water ingression. The complex survey lasted for seven months and included documentation of the water damage, video documentation of pipes and sewage system, and measurements in selected areas with the EFT® and FGM® technologies inside and outside of the building.
The investigation proved that the damages were caused not by groundwater, but by rainwater in several areas. Water was able to spread along joints into the kitchen and seminary rooms.
The extensive investigations were compiled into a final report; the subsequent sanitation works were partly supported and documented by TEXPLOR.
