Basement Refurbishment, Glasgow
The new owners of this prestigious property in Glasgow’s West End discovered an unused sub floor space and realised the potential of creating a dry and functional basement area. The client did not want to disturb the original foundations and required a waterproofing solution that would be cost effective and practical.
The engineers involved designed a new raised ground floor level, using structurally designed support beams to achieve the required height in the basement.
Newton Specialist Basement Contractor, Richardson and Starling Ltd designed a waterproofing system incorporating Newton 508 membrane to the wall and floor area with the Newton Basedrain installed across retaining aspects of the property. To save on internal heights the Basedrain was rebated into the slab with the Newton 508 membrane directly across the floor.
Insulation and a 65mm sand and cement screed was laid. Independent dry-lining was installed in front of the wall membrane to accept a plasterboard and skim finish. Any water ingressing the basement was diverted to the Basedrain and into a Newton Titan Pump System for removal.
The once redundant sub floor void was transformed into an impressive living space adding significant value to this property. The area is now completely dry and waterproofed.
The system designed and installed has provided the client with peace of mind. The NSBC has provided an insured backed guarantee on all aspects of the structural waterproofing.
