Example text

Whereas in the case of flexible sheeting good protection is required during backfilling and the upper “exposed” end must be sealed, the mineral coatings cannot bridge over any cracks owing to their inherent brittleness. d The ground floor construction in this example includes thermal insulation to insulate against the unheated basement. Take the presence of heavy concentrated loads into account when choosing the insulating material. Place the impact sound insulation beneath the thermal insulation and around the edges – without interruption – in order to produce a “floating” floor construction.

G A continuous slot in the base of the lightwell ensures water can drain away into the quickdraining backfilling material. g. 2-6 DF, which have a greater compressive strength but, mainly, a higher gross density. g. after completing the structural works. A water-repellent basement wall render of group P III provides the waterproofing. As this rendering is relatively expensive and time-consuming, is also rigid and therefore vulnerable to cracking, flexible sealing coatings which can be rendered over may also be used.

B Foundations to small houses are often simplified and constructed together with the ground slab as a raft foundation, which must be properly designed and reinforced accordingly. g. individual columns, intermediate loadbearing walls with larger openings. If the raft foundation is constructed from impermeable concrete like the external wall, seal the joint between the two concrete components with a waterstop or water bar. 44 c A heated basement forming part of the living accommodation requires an acoustically and thermally insulated, waterproofed floor slab with a floating screed.
