New large basements at a North West London retail and apartment build thanks to Wykamol

This new build double fronted retail unit with basement forms part of a larger mixed-use scheme of 9 apartments. 

There is a lift for direct access to the basement. The basement has a ceiling height of 11 feet with its own private entrance from Hawthorn Road. In addition, the basement has a small rear enclosed terrace.

This old landmark building of Willesden Salvage has had a complete makeover with a new build connected to the original building to create new retail space and apartments.

The large basement areas needed a dual waterproofing scheme and, thanks to Wykamol and Registered Installer, Simon Wootton, of Advance Property Preservation, that has been completed.

A crystalline cement-based coating was applied to the concrete walls first and followed by a Type C cavity drain membrane system linked with a perimeter drainage system. 

Our high visual yellow membrane was used to make taping easier to see and for health and safety reasons in this once dark space.

Of course, the design team at Wykamol were onboard from the outset ensuring that the project incorporated the design scheme BS8102. 

It's also encouraging to oversee the advanced work on this project with the installation of the membrane and drainage system.

Turning an old space into revitalised new buildings like this means a once unused underground space can now be turned into a great retail opportunity for new business.

Working alongside our registered installers the design team at Wykamol are CSSW qualified and can work on all spaces below ground from multi-level basements to domestic basement areas.

Contact Wykamol so we can get involved at design stage on your next below ground space to ensure a 10 year insurance warranty can be provided to NHBC standards.
