Pickenham Hall is a Grade II Listed mansion in the rural countryside near the market town of Swaffham, Norfolk. The principle building is a two-storey Neo-Georgian structure from the early 20th Century.
Newton Specialist Contractor AP Gooch Basement Waterproofing were commissioned to design and install an effective waterproofing
solution for a 3,000 square foot extension to the mansion being
undertaken by Kier Construction.
AP Gooch installed the full Newton System 500 cavity drainage system in order to manage and remove any ingressing water. The main element of the system consisted of the 8mm deep Newton 508 membrane, which was installed to the walls and floors of the large
Newton System 500 is a fully maintainable waterproofing solution, which therefore complies with the requirements of BS 8102:2009, the British Standard Code of Practice for the Protection of Below Ground
Structures Against Water from the Ground.
The floor build up consisted of the structural slab which was topped with 50mm of closed cell insulation, the Newton 508 membrane, and a 65mm screed. As part of the system, Newton Basedrain was also installed around the wall/floor junction and across day work joints as a means of collecting ingressing water and diverting it to one of two Titan Pro-White sump chambers. Inside each chamber are twin
Newton NP400 pumps for pumping water away from the property.
The waterproofing works installed by AP Gooch created a completely dry and habitable Grade 3 environment, as defined by BS 8102:2009. The work was also finished well within the tight time constraints of the project, and the client was extremely happy with the end result.
“Kier Construction were extremely happy with our performance completing the works two weeks ahead of schedule in this 3,000 square foot basement. ” – Anthony Gooch (Newton Specialist Basement Contractor)
