Waterproofing systems for tunnel structures are faced with very stringent requirements regarding durability, exposure and stress conditions, demanding construction methods and sequences, ease of application and total cost management. In addition, sustainable system solutions are becoming more important in order to save natural resources such as energy and water, reduction of CO2, etc.
The selection of the appropriate waterproofing solution, the project specific design of the chosen waterproofing system and its safe application at site are the key elements to minimise the operation costs. A waterproofing system typically amounts to a fraction of the total constructions costs. The selection of a high quality waterproofing solution may easily save an amount of its initial investment or more on future maintenance and repair costs during the entire service life of the structure.
