Applications for Infrastructure

Underground Construction


Multifaceted solutions for below grade waterproofing of concrete structures, tunnels, utility shafts, structural foundations and any concrete susceptible to water ingress.

In underground construction, the right products and the right installation methods are imperative to ensuring the long term, water-tightness of a structure. Our movement control and waterproofing solutions meet the rigorous requirements of construction products with high-functioning, independently tested, easy to use and kind to environment. They include ES Seals for movement joints, sheet membranes, liquid-applied membranes, joint sealants, water stops and secondary waterproofing hose systems. We work with engineers and architects to anticipate breaches and proactively counter those with innovative product solutions.
