Helping a developer increase profit margin

When we were approached by a Preston property developer to utilise unused space in a large domestic development, Wykamol were happy to attend site to look at this large, terraced property in a conservation area of Preston, Lancashire. 

Attending site, we walked through the project and listened to what the developer wanted to achieve and then looked at potential issues with drainage and what ground water and foul water pumping requirements maybe needed and whether there were any existing drains that could be utilised at the property. 

A scheme was then sent to the contractor alongside some specialist drawings to show the contractor all the drainage points and jetting eyes that would be needed throughout the basement alongside the waterproofing membrane application areas.

Further site visits were undertaken when the membranes and drainage had started and then another site visit when the membrane part of project was completed. 

Doing this we can fully ensure the project and sign off with a BS8102 designed scheme the code of practice for our waterproofing industry when working below ground. 

The Type C cavity drain membranes that were installed meet all requirements and are British Board of Agrément approved alongside all other approvals including CE approval and are even Radon gas approved also. 

Yet again we can show how valuable space underground can be brought back to life in this instance a new kitchen area will be created alongside an office.

Whether you have a single room chamber or multi-roomed commercial project the team at Wykamol are happy to help at every stage to ensure you create a dry warm environment below ground.

Contact us if you need any help on a project and we would be happy to attend site for an initial discussion!
