hydrostatic pressure to build, making any crack in a foundation an
access point for water damage. The key water-management issue on
this project was the prevention of degradation of the concrete piers by
liquid water. The architects needed to control the flow of below-grade
water and direct it away from the load-bearing components of the
building.
