Damp Proofing A Grade 2 Listed Building, Berkshire
Newton Newlath 805 was installed to provide a damp proof barrier to Douai Abbey, a Grade II Listed Building in Berkshire which was suffering from severe damp penetration
Damp Proofing a Grade 2 Listed Building
Douai Abbey is a Grade II Listed Building which was used as a Public School until the late 1990’s. Due to severe damp penetration the property was uninhabitable and in need of total refurbishment.
After consultation with a variety of different manufacturers, Bewley Homes contacted Newton Waterproofing Systems for a free on site meeting so as to ascertain the most cost effective and simplistic solution to the damp problems. Previously they had been advised to repoint the entire structure externally (approximately 6,000 square metres) and apply a chemical DPC. This solution was not only expensive and time consuming it was not sympathetic to the structure.
Newton’s technical department advised to apply Newton 805 Newlath internally to the external walls to treat the damp problems, and finish with independent dry lining system.
After 3-4 weeks the old abbey had been successfully converted into a complex of luxury apartments free from the effects of damp penetration.
Newton 805 Newlath is ideal for this type of refurbishment project as minimal surface preparation is required and the system is totally reversible meaning it is highly sympathetic to the building fabric. The membrane allows the wall to breathe thus not trapping any previous moisture within the structure.
