Pipe & Stone Drainage

Keeping water drained away from concrete foundations and preventing it from moving through the concrete are essential to a successful structure. Accomplishing our goal, then, of draining any water away and ensuring a dry interior space below grade can be relatively simple or fairly involved depending on geographic location, climate, topography, soil/water table conditions, and depth of the foundation.

And remember that since this will mostly be underground when the building is complete, doing it right the first time is critical, because coming back to fix it is an expensive undertaking. A leaky foundation in a commercial building can damage finishes and even the structure itself. In a commercial building, water can ruin expensive equipment and disrupt vital work.

Pipe & Stone Drainage System
There are three components of any system designed to keep water out:

  • Drains to move water away from the bottom of the foundation

  • Wall treatment to prevent moisture from moving through the wall and to route water down to the drains

  • Ground surface treatment adjacent to the building to direct surface water away
