James Hockey specialises in the design and installation of waterproofing systems for basements and podium decks in new and existing structures. Historically, much of this work has been on the investigation and remediation of failed systems, undertaken on behalf of The NHBC, Zurich, CRL and Premier Guarantees. This led to work updating technical manuals for CRL & Premier Guarantees, contributing to the development of nationwide requirements for designers/contractors to comply and to obtain structural warrantee cover.
