Waterproofing conference will bring together a range of professionals

The second international structural waterproofing conference will focus on the themes of design, specification and best practice

The Property Care Association said its upcoming structural waterproofing conference will appeal to a broad range of professions and industries.

The PCA represents the structural waterproofing sector and has committed to drive best practice. Recently, the association introduced a new standard in collaboration with the NHBC. Chapter 5.4 aims to deliver improvements in waterproofing works and was introduced following the revelation claims on basements had cost close to £21m since 2005.

The conference, which will be the second international event dedicated to the topic, will take place on 6 July at The Slate, University of Warwick.

The agenda has been developed with housebuilding, construction, civil and architectural professionals in mind.

Following a three-session format, it will focus on themes surrounding design, specification and best practice. Topics to be discussed will also include concrete in waterproofing, hydrogeology and soil mechanics as well as structural design and ground gas management.

Following on from success

Steve Hodgson, Chief Executive of the Property Care Association (PCA), said: “Last year’s inaugural structural waterproofing conference was a great success across industry, providing a useful opportunity to broaden knowledge and skills within this important area.

“Based on that success we have been able to further enhance the event for 2017, widening its scope and scale with industry-leading speakers covering a range of subjects.”

What is Storm Stella, when will it hit the UK?

 

What is Storm Stella, when will it hit the UK?

KILLER blizzard Storm Stella blanketed the northeast of the US in snow and hammered its shores with 60mph winds.

The snowstorm, which left at least five people dead, is now set to journey across the Atlantic on its way to the UK.

Here’s everything you need to know about the storm before it arrives.

What is Storm Stella?

Storm Stella is a powerful snow blizzard that battered the northeast coast of the USA and plunged it into a state of emergency.

Roughly 50 million people were under a blizzard warning as 60mph winds swept through.

The tail end of the storm is due to hit our shores this weekend – but its force will have significantly weakened.

Snow has only been predicted for some parts of Scotland.

The powerful blast buried northeastern states including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and Massachussetts under snow.

At its most intense it caused the death of Ava Doris, 16, who lost control of her car.

The blizzard also claimed the lives of two elderly men in Milwaukee who were shovelling snow on Monday.

A man in Massachusetts was killed in his truck after it was hit by a train in poor visibility conditions.

An elderly man in Connecticut died after he was struck by a snowplough, NBC reported.

Stella also caused school closures and the cancellations of 6800 flights as people were urged to stay indoors.

Temperatures were predicted to dip as low as -4C when people were warned of the storm.

Americans in US states such as New York and New Jersey were told to prepare for two feet of the white stuff.

That prediction was later downgraded to between 4 - 8 inches.

1600 snowploughs were deployed to clear the New York streets.

The porn website Pornhub sent snow ploughs to three states to help clear up snow.

Roughly 210,000 people in the mid-west and northeast experienced power outages.

The conditions caused German Chancellor Angela Merkel to postpone a trip to Washington to meet President Trump.

When will Storm Stella arrive in the UK?

The tail end of Storm Stella is set to whip our shores this weekend.

The arrival will come after Brits have enjoyed the hottest day of the year so far on Wednesday.

Temperatures rocketed to 18C with people taking the opportunity to head to the beach or go for a picnic.

The weather was also bright and cheerful yesterday as Stella showed no signs of arriving.

Brits have woken up to sunny weather with a slight chill in the air this morning as the remnants of Storm Stella prepare to take effect.

Spring temperatures may remain as parts of the country feel mild this weekend but the wind is expected to make it feel colder.

Friday will gradually see wind and rain affecting most of the country by the end of the day.

The weekend will continue to be unsettled with rain coming in from the west.

Parts of the weekend will continue to see brighter spells but parts of Scotland are likely to experience snow.

Storms are given their own names in the UK so Stella would be renamed if its effect here was significant enough.

Steven Keates from the Met Office said: "From late Thursday till Sunday it will turn wet and windy across the country and this will last thorough the weekend.

"Wind will strengthen to gale force of up to 60mph on Friday and Saturday in the North West England and Wales."

Temperatures are expected to plunge by Friday and will struggle to reach 9C.

The worst affected areas for gales are predicted to be coastlines in Southern England and the North West.

Where will Storm Stella make landfall?

Scotland and the north are first in the firing line when Storm Stella's remnants sweep through this weekend.

Forecaster Oli Claydon said: "The benign conditions are certainly going to turn as things become more unsettled at the end of the week.

"It is all part of the same system which is currently causing stormy weather in the US, although it won't be anywhere near as vigorous when it reaches the UK.

"But we are going to see a regime change as this low pressure system moves across the Atlantic.

"There will be some rain around on Wednesday although most places will see a dry day; on Thursday the north will get some rain.

"From Friday into the weekend it will turn wet and windy across the country and this will last thorough the weekend."
