The Green Specification
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do
We are the leading experts in all forms of waterproofing
Approximately 10% of the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions are directly associated with construction. We are also the second largest contributor to plastic waste in the UK.
The construction sector needs to act now to ensure a cleaner environment and a safer planet.
So how can a Waterproofing company help the environment?
At Arti Structural Waterproofing sustainability is at the heart of what we do. We are committed to change our everyday habits and work on building a more sustainable and efficient company. Our strategy is to invest in greener transportation plug in and hybrid vehicles, have a paper free office by making use of modern technologies, recycle more and consider sustainable designs!
When putting forward our waterproofing designs we will provide you with the greenest specification available – Selecting products that are more sustainable in their manufacturing and composition.
Our manufactures are committed to ensuring that their operations are conducted in a sustainable manner by adhering to eco-efficient principles. With many of the products we choose being made in zero emissions production facility powered by renewable energy and harvesting rainwater for the production.
So if low impact construction is important to your project, then call Arti Waterproofing now to discuss this further.
By choosing sustainable products we help to:
- Reduce our carbon emissions, eg by using renewable energy or buying energy efficient products to reduce your energy use.
- Save natural resources – for example: choose products and services that use recycled materials or waste as a raw material or resource.
- Reduce waste sent to landfill – for example: use products which can be reused or recycled.
- Create a market for new sustainable goods and materials to help the green economy grow.

Sustainability Highly Commended
Cavity Drain Membranes
We can specify membranes that are made of virgin material or 100% recycled plastic. Off cuts and waste left over from an install is salvaged and returned to the manufacturer to make into new products. This close loop works incredibly well and goes to show what a small change we can make to make a big impact on our waste.
Eco Efficient Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Systems
When it comes to the buildings fabric there is so much more we can do to deliver the most efficient eco-friendly home, every day new innovations and technologies are released to help everyone make that change and do a little. Diasen is one such company that is making a big impact they offer a unique alternative to finishing plasters and renders and to do so they have borrowed from nature. Their products are designed to improve the conditions of life in the environment closer to people: their homes. The aim is to protect them from high levels of humidity and thermal losses, using the same methods adopted in Nature. They have gathered cork, clay and diatomaceous earth for their thermal and acoustic insulation properties, along with their hygroscopic characteristic and have added natural hydraulic lime, in order to offer a guarantee of efficient, healthy and long lasting products.
Smart and Energy Efficient Pumps
We utilise the best technology and correct design for our pumps. This results in higher output using less power. This is not only good for the environment but also for your energy bill and ultimately extending the service life of the system.
This clever innovation is made from 100% recycled glass and has high compressive strength. Installed as part of a waterproofing system weather deep below ground or high above on a roof. An amazing alternative to XPS insulation.
Modified Tanking systems
A very traditional way to waterproof and a system that continually evolves. In choosing these products we aim to use those that are water-based, offering a distinct advantage over solvent based products. Designed for potable water, they release virtually no odours so can be applied in enclosed environments causing no disruption to other trades and more importantly these products tend to be made in zero emissions production facilities.
