Bookings open for PCA structural waterproofing conference

Bookings are now open for a national structural waterproofing conference, which has become a significant event in the industry’s calendar.

The Property Care Association’s fourth annual International Structural Waterproofing conference takes place at The Slate, University of Warwick, Coventry on 17 July, 2019.

A dynamic programme – which includes a knowledge sharing hub, where experts and the audience debate key industry issues and best practice – has seen the event gain increasing recognition within the architectural, civil engineering and construction industries.

As well as professionals from these sectors, the event also attracts surveyors, lawyers, public authorities, geologists, ground engineers and academics.

Last year’s conference included insights into high-profile projects underground, technical details and an overview of liabilities and responsibilities, with speakers including academics, practitioners and industry experts.

It went on the record books as the PCA’s biggest one-day conference to date, with over 160 delegates attending.

Last year’s conference was also the first to be supported by specialist event technology – the PCA Structural Waterproofing app – which helped amplify the conference’s knowledge-sharing agenda.

This system played a key part in the proceedings, allowing delegates to ask questions to the speakers throughout the day and in advance of the Q&A sessions and panel debate.

The conference is of appeal to both members and non-members alike.

James Berry, technical manager of the PCA, said: “The structural waterproofing conference goes from strength to strength and the speakers lined-up and the subjects being covered in 2019 are set to make this year’s event a success too.

“The participants share a deep interest in this technical subject, and in turn that creates the atmosphere for an interesting and thought-provoking debate.

“Early booking is advised, as last year we were at capacity.”

Booking information for the event – priced at £100 plus VAT for PCA members and £150 plus VAT for non-members – can be found at
