Construction Of A New Build Basement In A Hotel
Newton System 500 was used to waterproof four prestigious new build basements. This was an extremely wet site, but Newton System 500 cavity drain system could be installed quickly and the project was completed within tight timescales.
Waterproofing New-Build Basements In A Hotel
As a part of this circa £50 million pound development, Newton Specialist Basement Contractor (NSBC), MacLennanUK was commissioned to design and install a robust and cost effective water management solution to four large basements areas used for habitable accommodation in accordance with BS8102.
Once the RC concrete basement box was created, Newton 508 was curtain hung to all earth retaining walls, terminating behind the Newton Basedrain rebated into the structural slab. Newton 508 was also introduced into the basements as a floor membrane followed by insulating the screed.
The internal block work was then put up in front of the Newton 508 and was able to be tied back to the original RC wall throughout, the MultiPlug heads giving lateral support to the block work without compromising the membrane in any way. The Basedrain was then terminated into a Newton Titan Pumping System (one in each area) to evacuate any water ingress.
The main contractor Carillion and the specifier had the benefit of using a Newton Specialist Basement Contractor that could design and install taking full product and installation liability.
The GPI guarantee was insurance backed meaning that were the company to go out of business the client would be fully protected.
“This was an extremely wet site meaning that the logistics of installing any external membrane would have been very difficult. Newton System 500 could be installed quickly in a clean environment, making quality workmanship achievable and the project was completed within tight timescales.” – Ian MacLennan, MacLennanUK
