Basement Waterproofing for local leisure centre development
A local leisure centre was being affected dampness and our team were asked to waterproof the basement through a number of systems.
Waterproofing Basement at Islington Square
Our waterproofing experts were asked to inspect a property in Islington Square where the basement was suffering from large forms of dampness. A type C waterproofing system was used to treat the damp basement issue.
Commercial Waterproofing for museum archive in York
At the National Railway Museum based in York needed a full rejuvenation. Before the project could be carried out, waterproofing systems had to be implemented by the Timberwise team.
Waterproofing types to consider
Type A: Barrier Protection (External, Sandwiched or Internal)
Type B: Structurally Integral Protection (Usually to the relevant British Standard and of reinforced concrete structure) (BS 8007 and BS 8110)
Type C: Drained Protection (Cavity Drain Membranes and Construction Drained Cavities)
For more information on the different waterproofing types visit our structural waterproofing page.
Commercial Waterproofing Design & Installation
Timberwise can take full responsibility for the design and liability for the basement waterproofing design in your building project. We design and implement waterproofing systems in line with guidelines set out in BS 8102 2009. Our systems also meet or exceed the guidance set out by in NHBC chapter 5.4 and Local Authority Building Control (LABC) guidelines.
Although the general principles contained within the BS 8102 2009 code have been maintained, there are several key changes and additional points that should not be overlooked.
One key point is contained within section 4.2, The design Team, the code recommends:
A waterproofing specialist should be included as part of the design team so that an integrated waterproofing solution is created.
At Timberwise we offer a comprehensive range of waterproofing services from feasibility, through design and installation to final “sign-off”. Our Structural waterproofing solutions come complete with a 10 year Timberwise guarantee, giving you total protection and peace of mind that should a problem arise you have complete protection.
BS 8102 Waterproofing Regulations
Shortly before the end of 2009 the document relating to the waterproofing of structures below ground, BS8102 1990, was amended and revised to come to be BS8102 2009 Code of Practice for Protection of Structures Against Water from the Ground.
This document is without question ‘the bible’ for any person involved in a waterproofing project and continues to be used effectively by professional witnesses in instances of a dispute to convict dangerous designs.
