Podium decks are external platforms between or attached to building structures and are utilised for many different purposes.
A podium deck is an externally weathered, elevated structural element that has a void underneath it. Podium decks are being incorporated into the design of more and more structures. They provide several options for usage but are often utilised as outdoor accessible spaces - for example, leisure spaces, terrace areas and gardens. The basements can vary but are usually either habitable space or car parking.
It is for this reason that it is essential that podium decks are protected and sealed against surface water ingress from above.
We recommend the use of our Blueshield PmB liquid applied waterproofing systems for these applications due to it being completely homogenous with no seams/joints which inevitably become weak spots for ingress in the future. The BBA-approved Blueshied PmB has a track record of over 40 years and has been successfully installed worldwide with over 15 million m2 applied.
The seamless nature of the Blueshield PmB product combined with its rapid installation times makes it a popular choice for designers and clients when specifying podium deck waterproofing. Additionally, it is vital that a competent contractor is selected to undertake the waterproofing and surface finishes in these exposed areas to guarantee the whole structure remains watertight and protected. Our trained and skilled operatives have been making structures water tight for many years and have both the experience and equipment to deliver any podium waterproofing project.
