Construction Dimples

No, these aren’t those cute little indents on the cheek when someone smiles, but they’re quite interesting in how we use them in the construction world. In construction, dimples are great for waterproofing plaza decks and in this project, a parking garage.

First, a product is installed over a waterproofing layer with the dimple-side up. Then the final surface is placed over the geotextile. Now when water penetrates through the cracks in the concrete, it will simple flow to floor drains directed by the membrane.

They’re not super cute, but at least they’re brilliant!

Stay posted on this project on 29th in West Vancouver.
