Wykamol are proud to be associated with the largest basement waterproofing project in the UK
Totalling 40,000m2 of Cavity drain membranes the Wykamol group spent a total of 2 years in planning and design stage on this project to create a robust waterproofing design over the 6 stories of the basement structure in what will be the
deepest hotel in Europe when completed.
Regular site meetings throughout the project were carried out by the Wykamol group to ensure installation of the waterproofing membranes and in accordance with our strict installation guidelines.
All the products that were installed at this project carried BBA Certifications, and currently the project is still the largest but running very close is the new Raffles hotel in
Whitehall where our membranes are being installed at a 5 story basement project As the illustration opposite and the photographs on the next page demonstrate, the scale of this project is huge with 6 storeys ‘below ground’ in excess of 30 metres deep.
The scheme’s architects are Woods Bagot with SW Contracts as the main contractor with support from subcontractor Macai Projects. Marc Kerride took advice and guidance from Wykamol’s David Jeffries as the design is complex and 20 or so drawings were prepared to help the architect in the overall scheme design.
The floors have a combination of 8mm and 20mm membranes to both walls and floors depending on the level of the floor and there is an innovative pipework system to transfer water from floor to floor.
Tanking slurry has been applied on intermediate floors to deal with water under capillary action across the floors.
