Adelaide Waterproofing Presentation

22 May 2023

Join the ACA SA committee and Paul Ratcliff for an invaluable, practical CPD presentation on the assessment of waterproofing design for bathrooms and balconies. Joel Clough and Adam McGlone from Ardex will also join us for a panel discussion.


Paul Ratcliff has a wealth of knowledge and more than 30 years onsite building experience, with a focus on building and waterproofing inspections. Realising that water entry into buildings represents 80% of litigated claims, for the last 20 years Paul has focused on understanding which materials make a building waterproof and how to implement them into good design.

Paul will cover the critical issues to be considered when assessing waterproofing design and will take you through the Australian Standards and proposed amendments. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Joel Clough and Adam McGlone from ACA National Partner, Ardex.
