Project Profile: This project is a new Single Family home located directly on the Intracoastal Waterway in North Palm Beach, Florida. The Basement is being built below the water table and will be in 15 feet of constant water submersion. Membrane going vertical It is for this reason that a very sophisticated, State of The Art Waterproofing System be installed under the basement slab and on the basement wall. The entire structure must be wrapped with a waterproof membrane to eliminate any possibility of water intrusion into the finished space.

Problem: Provide a product that would totally encapsulate the underground basement and shield the completed project from any water penetration for the life of the structure. All of the work had to be completed within a very specific time table to allow a minimum time of installation while the well points were pumping out the water on the site. Once completed the Well Points would be permanently cut off allowing the water to rise around the completed structure. Installing the menbrane
