Newton Takes on Waterproofing Design Liability

Newton Waterproofing, the UK’s leading independent designers and suppliers of guaranteed waterproofing systems, has launched a bespoke Design Service dedicated to helping architects and specifiers with a range of projects.

The service consists of a dedicated team of technical staff to offer support on any project, from design through to post-installation maintenance via its network of specialist contractors.

The team is also on hand to undertake quality assurance visits and on-site training when required.

The British Standard for Waterproofing, BS 8102:2009, recommends that a waterproofing specialist is included as an integral member of the design team, and by making use of Newton’s bespoke Design Service, specifiers and contractors can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of one of the most experienced companies in the UK waterproofing industry.

Newton Waterproofing Managing Director Warren Muschialli comments: “The reason we’re able to offer this unique service is that for over 20 years we’ve maintained our company’s Professional Indemnity insurance cover, a policy designed to protect business owners if clients claim that a service is inadequate.

“In the current market many specifiers and contractors are finding that it is increasingly difficult to secure their own Professional Indemnity cover for waterproofing designs, which is why we are delighted to now formally offer a truly bespoke waterproofing design service, backed by our own Professional Indemnity insurance.”

Qualifying projects can also benefit from the Newton Latent Defects Guarantee, the first insurance policy from a UK waterproofing supplier that is backed by an A-rated, UK-based insurer, and provides up to 12 years of cover for all structural waterproofing defects arising from the workmanship, design, and/or materials.

Based in Tonbridge, Newton Waterproofing is a family run business of over 170 years that supplies, designs and installs effective, robust, and third-party accredited Type A, B and C waterproofing systems in accordance with current legislation and best practice using a wide range of materials.
