This mammoth three story deep basement has been created from the old Odeon cinema on Kensington high street.
The New Building will feature:
- New 887-seat cinema (including 12 wheelchair accessible seats) with six screens accessed from Kensington High Street; The lobby will include a café, snack counter and bar with lifts and stairs taking customers down to the auditorium at basement level
- Restored historic façade
- 106 residential units, including 35 on-site affordable units for elderly people;
- Modern offices and retail space.
This 3-story deep structure was a complicated design linking waterproofing from each floor to a lower floor and then pumped to drainage at a higher level.
Wykamol have been attending site every 2 weeks to sign areas of waterproofing off in order to allow concrete walls to be built in front of the membrane system.
Jetting eyes flushing systems have been used every ten metres to allow the membrane and perimeter channels to be cleaned regularly on maintenance schemes.
Collaborating with the team at Rascor has made this project run like clockwork with regular photos sharing to a WhatsApp site project folder for the main contractor and with the visits a fully insured scheme can be handed over to the owners later.
With the scheme having waterproof concrete throughout the complete site the membranes have given this project a dual waterproofing scheme to Bs8102.
With their British manufactured membranes and the use of solar energy to help manufacture these membranes they have also been able to help with reducing co2 emissions over imported products on site.
Overall, a fantastic project for the team at Wykamol to work on and they extend their thanks to Rascor for collaborating with them on such a prestigious project.
