Wykamol design team have a record month in submitted plans for basement waterproofing

The Wykamol team, who advise on waterproofing projects across the UK and Ireland, have had a record quarter of applications to design underground waterproofing schemes.

More than 120 projects have arrived over the last month from contractors, architects and engineers asking for help in the design of the waterproofing. 

Working to BS8102 and NHBC chapter 5.4 our design team headed by Reg MacDonald CSSW, BSc Eng., and National Waterproofing Manager of the group, carefully look at project and discuss with the relevant parties the plans and any issues that may arise from the submitted drawings.

Once this has taken place a full design and bespoke drawings in PDF and DWG are drawn up to sit alongside the design for the waterproofing.

Wykamol are also able to offer a full PI insurance solution on the approved designs to sit alongside the contractor’s insurance on the installation.

The growth of Wykamol’s sales in the Waterproofing sector has been amazing to watch and our on-site guidance is clearly working due to the demand for the groups British manufactured products in this sector. 

We have updated all our technical waterproofing literature and have drawn over 175 technical 3D drawings for the contractors and specifiers, these are available in a brochure format or in individual pdf designs.

The biggest growth area for us is individual homes that are using the space underground to increase the footage on the property, again whatever the construction from concrete to ICF the Wykamol team can help and design for all construction types. 

Another area that has seen increased growth is the commercial sector and this includes large multi-level basements up to six storeys deep that require waterproofing specifications, we can also supply a full design specification pack including drawings designs and relevant data sheets and approved BBA documents.

Although time consuming our bespoke drawing service is available and our technical team attending site can be on site whilst work is carried out to sign off waterproofing installations.

Overall, Wykamol waterproofing service is available to everybody from small builders to large commercial practices.
