Our clients asked us to design/install solution to offer dry habitable basement to be used as a gymnasium/study. Pure designed and installed a full basement waterproofing scheme to BS 8102:2009 consisting of a Wykamol Cavity Drainage System. The basement had been constructed with Insulated Concrete Formwork including an external waterproofing system (installed as part of the build) – prevention of water ingress was a major concern given that the basement flooded during the build.
Pure installed a Wykamol cavity drainage system with an internal discreet perimeter drainage channel incorporating inspection/maintenance ports and a twin sump pump station with automatic sump pumps. The system consisted of an 8mm wall membrane and a 20mm floor membrane.
The result was a dry useable basement area left ready for the contractor’s fit-out.
