Case Studies

  • basement2rooms projects

Our involvement in basement/cellar waterproofing spans some 30 years where we have specified ‘not hundreds but tens of thousands’ of waterproofing designs for both new build and existing basements. Most basement projects are relatively straight forward, however, as you will see some provide us with a definite challenge.

The running theme throughout this site is “getting it right” which means a thorough assessment of the situation, clients’ expectations and critically the correct choice and position of the waterproofing system.

Here are some of the projects we have been involved in over the years.
