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. Cavity Drain membranes were then added as a 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 they have on site, with technical help, and British manufactured competitive products in the marketplace.
“being competitive in the market has helped us gain more work, and using British manufactured products means that the c02 emissions are kept to a minimum compared to shipping imported products across Europe with other systems. We like the green credentials Wykamol as a company are carrying out with Solar panels and the recycling service they use. Overall, this is something our clients also 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 also 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 is being installed again 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. This is harder to see in dark colour membrane systems.
Once again, a great installation and Bba approved products is helping this structure remain dry and they’re pleased to say a brand-new restaurant will be heading into this below ground space once completed.
