St. Oliver’s School, Tuam – Structure Waterproofing & Radon Protection


SURFASOLOGY provided the waterproofing and radon protection of the below-ground reinforced concrete on this Simon J Kelly Architects designed new school building in Tuam, Co. Galway. The construction works were completed by the well-known Galway construction company Carey Building Contractors Ltd.

To protect the reinforced concrete slab DualProof T Membrane was pre-applied and the reinforced concrete walls were protected using the post-applied DualProof S Membrane.

Maxseal Flex, a flexible waterproof coating, was used to provide continuity between the below-ground waterproofing and the Damp Proof Course.

The Pipe penetrations were detailed using the rain protected Quellmax Plus water-stop.

The DualProof System was installed by SURFASOLOGY approved applicators.

The non-movement construction joints in the reinforced concrete were detailed using the “active” CEMflex VB Plate Waterstop.
