New build basement in rural Leicestershire. Built using waterproof concrete.

The Challenges

New build basement in rural Leicestershire. Built using waterproof concrete.

The land on which the cellar was o be built had a very high water table and the ground conditions meant it would retain water very well. For these reasons the client and their team wanted a cellar building specialist to design and carry out the works.

Beautiful Basements, as a long time established design and cellar building company was asked to carry out the works, and a reinforced concrete basement with waterproofing additives was built to keep the cellar dry.

Waterproofing Method

The reinforced concrete walls & floor had waterproofing additives in the mixture, all construction joints were treated with a hydrophilic cementitious slurry. Finally a cavity drainage membrane system, linked to a sump and pumping station was installed internally.

All waterproofing materials were supplied by Triton Systems.
