Installing a Robust Flood Protection System to Five Properties in South Hinksey, Oxfordshire
Installing a Flood Protection System
South Hinksey suffers from high flood risk and recently has had severe flooding problems affecting the majority of the properties. Previously, in 2007, a major flood engulfed the village with devastating results.
Phil Hewitt Associates designed a flood protection system and Newton Specialist Basement Contractor Stonehouse Basements were commissioned to design and install a Newton System 500 robust flood management system. The system was installed in five individual properties where the clients were extremely worried about future flooding and needed a system that would work in conjunction with flood defence systems to keep their properties dry.
The properties to be treated varied in their substrates, including a combination of Cotswold Stone and 9 inch brick work. Stonehouse tailored the flood management system to each particular property’s needs.
In all circumstances the Newton System 500 cavity drain membrane system was installed with sump and pumps to manage any ingression of water through the building fabric and through the floor to the sump and pump systems so problem water could be evacuated in the event of ingress.
With the major flood in Oxfordshire in November 2012 these systems were tested to the extreme, with 500 to 800mm of water engulfing the village completely. The Newton System 500 Flood Management System protected all the properties it was installed in with parties all around being flooded and in some case evacuated from their homes.
