When a new commercial structure in Angel, London needed a waterproofing scheme. Wykamol registered installer, Advance Property Preservations, jumped at the opportunity to design a scheme to BS8102.
Two forms of waterproofing were designed including pre applied membranes Type A at construction stage and Cavity Drain membranes as a post applied Type C system to give the building a Dual waterproofing scheme
Simon Wootton of Advance chose the Wykamol products because of the close working relationship we have on site technical help and supply British manufactured competitive products in the marketplace
Simon says, “Being competitive in the market has helped us win more work and using British manufactured products means that the CO2 emissions in manufacturing are kept to a minimum compared to shipping imported products across Europe with other systems, we like their green credentials. Wykamol now provides Solar panels and a recycling service. Overall this is something our clients appreciate."
As you can see in the images the cavity drain membranes are linked to a perimeter channel system which has flushing points regularly around the perimeter. It is linked to a specialist sump chamber system to remove and ground water that may come in at a later stage.
Our high visual yellow membrane CM20 was installed on this project and has become extremely popular as the system has a translucent effect so taped joints can be seen clearly within the system to ensure that all joints are correctly sealed, something which is harder to see in dark colour membrane systems.
Once again, a great installation and BBA approved products are helping this structure remain dry and we’re pleased to say a brand-new restaurant will be heading into this below ground space once completed.
