A developer wanted to build a large basement under a new build home and chose the team at Wykamol to help on site with waterproofing designs.
After looking at the plans and designing the scheme to Bs8102 our local technical manager, Wayne Longstaff attended site on many occasions to check on the waterproofing works.
A dual waterproofing scheme including our bonded sheet membrane on the outside and cavity drain membranes internally are being used alongside waterproof concrete.
Progress was quickly made and then the developer decided that he wanted to extend the basement another 500 square feet to include a cinema room. Again Wayne was onsite, and more plans and drawings were carried out to show the link between the new extended area and the existing basement.
Being able to attend the site and quickly act on the design, meant that the client could easily add the extra space he wanted. He could also keep the waterproofing design, which linked to with the existing design, even in the new extended basement area.
Wykamol have a network of technical managers across the UK, who liaise with the technical team at the head office to bring designs to the table for client’s engineers and building control teams.
