Waterproofing a luxury retrofit basement in Knightsbridge London

Waterproofing a luxury retrofit basement in Knightsbridge London

Wykamol were chosen to carry out waterproofing for a luxury home in Knightsbridge London.

Planning and making sure all possibilities are accounted for when dealing with ground water is what the Wykamol design team did on this project.

A full BS8102 design was carried out with the main contractor and the Wykamol Group to create 2 forms of waterproofing to this luxury home in Knightsbridge London.

Waterproof concrete alongside Wykamol’s British Manufactured Cavity Drain membrane (Type C) System were installed to secure a warranty for the client and a long-term insurance warranty.

Working alongside engineers is crucial when dealing with these complex projects where large underpinning and structural works are carried out, and Wykamol can work closely with the design team to look at plans and understand the complexities of these spaces underground.

Creating a full waterproof scheme is something Wykamol do daily, but care needs to be taken when dealing with such projects with multiple pipe entry points and structural steel, and should be considered at design stage before work commences.

Wykamol have many years’ experience when dealing with these kind of projects as they regularly work on multiple level basements, creating schemes as deep as 36 metres as in the case of the Leicester square hotel project which was over 6 stories deep.

For this project, Wykamol’s 8mm and 20mm membrane systems were incorporated into the scheme alongside a full drainage system linked to jetting and cleaning ports as well as a large, pumped drainage system to remove any ground water.
