Basement Waterproofing a visitors’ centre near London

Waterproofing commercial projects is what the Wykamol group carry out daily, from hotels to historic castles Wykamol have been involved in some amazing projects below ground including 5 and 6 story deep basements which we have helped to design the waterproofing schemes on.

In this instance a specialist contractor required help designing the waterproofing for a specialist visitor centre for a historic home in the southeast of the UK. 

As this was going to be a BS8102 designed scheme dual waterproofing was needed to facilitate insurance cover on the project, a dual system was needed so Wykamol designed a scheme incorporating a pre applied membrane underneath the slab, with a bonded sheet membrane system Sure proof on the external façade and protection board before back filling commenced.

The engineer on site also insisted that the drainage system could not be sunk into the existing slab as not to cause any damage to the structural steel, so we used our specialist insulated spacer to form the rebate for the perimeter channel. 

Cavity drain membranes were then installed to finish of the dual scheme. 

Theses membranes are to be fully warranted by Wykamol alongside our Pi approved design. 

It’s always good being at the early stages of these projects so we can discuss with the architects and engineers any potential problem areas that cause conflict at a later stage. 

Also being involved also at this stage means we can attend site at all stages to check on progress of the project and discuss and potential issues at build stage. 

Rest assured the team at Wykamol can help on site for all your basement waterproofing applications and please contact us if you have any projects that you require help with.

The service is free of charge, and we can even send a specialist pack showcasing the full design alongside drawings and 3d designs on the job also. 

Put your trust in Wykamol.
