There is a short concrete wall and there's building main wall.

enter image description here

The water collects between the gap and this goes into the foundation.

I want to build the plinth protection above the height of Short concrete wall so that water doesn't pool between the short wall and building main and go into the foundation.

I have plumbing lines going between the building main wall and a short concrete wall as you can see in the picture below.

enter image description here

Because there's a plumbing line going between the walls I have to make the plinth protection removable so that when there's a problem I don't have to destroy the plinth protection to fix the problem in plumbing lines

    I don't think this is common in north america. We generally manage water with gutters, downpipes, perimeter drains, storm drains and soil graded away from the house. Dimple fabric or waterproofing for exterior of foundation walls in ground contact. We often pour concrete side walks on one side of the house anyway but not all sides. Sep 21, 2023 at 7:05

    What's with the pic of the trench drain?

  • @Huesmann - the pics are model pics shows a plinth protection which also act as drain for the wall. I'd like to do the same but I want to do this removable so that I can work beneath like applying bitumen to the foundation once in 10 years or work with any faulting plumbing.

  • @FreshCodemonger - The rain that falls on terrace or top floor is collected and led far away from the building foundation. But When it rains the rain falls heavily on the exterior walls of the building also and this water goes into foundation so I'm looking for a plinth protection kind of like structure which also has small trench so the water can be redirected to the drainage line

    Put sleeves around any pipes that will penetrate the foundation. That way, if plumbing ever needs to be replaced, you can excavate either side of the foundation and slide the old, broken pipe out and a new pipe in. That's what I did 30 years ago when the concrete guys dug through my main drain while excavating for a new foundation. I haven't had to touch that PVC line in the ensuing 30 years, though. It appears that you're in India - maybe building materials there are different in construction/quality than they are here in the US. Maybe indicate the type(s) of pipe you'll be using.
