The maximisation of a building plots potential has seen an increase in developments using basement or below ground space. For such spaces to be habitable and function satisfactorily, problems such as flooding, rising damp, and diluted salts must be eradicated. If untreated the structure may experience a considerable loss of heat, damage to finishing’s/decoration and unhealthy room environments.

“…basement structures are likely to be subjected to water pressure at some period of life – it is therefore recommended that basements should include provision for resisting a hydrostatic pressure equivalent to 2m head of water at least.” – (BS 8102 3.1.1 para 3)

Working closely with product manufactures we are able to provide the latest products to combat the problems and protect the structures allowing developers and homeowners to create space that meets the demands of today.
