Slab-on-grade insulation placed on interior of stem wall?

Emel | Posted in General Questions on

We have a slab-on-grade build designed to have an exterior moisture membrane applied (Protecto LWM 200) on the 4’ stem walls and insulation to be applied to the interior of the stem walls. The build would look similar to what I’ve attached in this drawing. Would there be any issue with moisture being trapped in the concrete due to a membrane on one side and insulation on the other?
