The Challenges

New build site with very large basement constructed using mass fill concrete

Project Details

In beautiful rural South Leicestershire, near Market Harborough Beautiful Basements built a very large basement using timber shuttering and mass fill concrete.

The extremely active water table in the area meant a specialist cellar builder, with experience of dealing with these issues would be required.

The whole site is drained using an external land drain linked to an external dual pumping station and the basement is protected internally by a cavity drainage membrane (CDM) system linked to a second sump and dual pumping station. Both pumping stations are protected by an alarm system, designed to alert the owners should the water tables become even higher and more active.
