Maclennan were specified at design stage with the lower ground floor refurbishment of Wallis House, a stunning deco fronted listed building built between 1936 and 1942 and has been empty for years.
The building now has an application for planning permission and listed building consent to restore and refurbish one of the most impressive modern landmarks in West London into Flats and commercial office units.
The project is a sensitive and innovative scheme that respected the outstanding qualities of this massive yet carefully proportioned building.
Maclennan were involved at design stage with the lower ground floor refurbishment. Three sides of the lower ground floor are below ground level. Other methods of waterproofing which involved applying bitumen or cement based products to the walls and floors were considered, but Maclennan demonstrated the benefits of their basement waterproofing using the cavity drain membrane system over the other proposals.
The cavity membrane system would not rely on the existing substrate to be sound or prepared. It would be quick to install and had long term guarantees from Maclennan.
