    I agree with working with an Engineering Consultant, but have also recently learned that there is no code requirement for waterproofing exterior concrete. We are reviewing the same issue at this time, and although there is no need for surface water proofing, there is a need to review the concrete overall to ensure no delamination, and the envelope tie‑ins are properly maintained.

    A Corporation is wise to invest in a BECA‑Building Envelope Condition Assessment ‑ this will aid in the direction, and priorities of needed work and will allow you to make more qualified decisions on how best to manage your reserve.
