Refurbishing a Flooded Shop Basement, Chelsea
Bespoke Waterproofing for a High-End Commercial Space in London
Newton Specialist Contractor Garratt’s Damp and Timber provided their
waterproofing expertise as part of the refurbishment of this high-end
commercial property in the prestigious London Borough of Chelsea, as the
basement area was experiencing high volumes of water ingress.
By performing a flood simulation Garratt’s identified that water was entering
via defects in the shop front and pavement light wells, travelling along a
concealed steel joist and entering the centre of the basement.
Externally, Garratt’s recommended the shop front be removed, and worked
with main contractor CJS and the Newton technical team to design a bespoke
metal bund system to resolve the defects and prevent further water ingress.
The prepared concrete and steel was then treated with HydroSeal 903
Primer and waterproofed with three coats of Newton’s flexible cementitious
waterproofing membrane HydroSeal 107 Elastic 2K.
Internally, Garratt’s recommended and installed the failsafe Newton CDM
System to provide a comprehensive cavity drain waterproofing solution. This
included the BBA certified CDM 508 and CDM 520 eco Floor membranes, and
a dedicated Titan-Pro sump chamber for removing water from the basement.
The chamber houses dual CP250 pumps, managed by a Control Panel-Pro
pump control unit and supported by Victron battery backup protection for
complete peace of mind even in the event of a power outage.
By working in close cooperation with Newton Waterproofing and the main
contractor, Garratt’s delivered a bespoke waterproofing solution that is both
sympathetic to the original shop front (which was consequently restored) and
also delivers a completely dry, Grade 3 internal environment as per BS 8102.
Now fitted out, the basement is part of a high-end commercial unit.
The most reliable waterproofing solution for below ground,
combining our decades of experience with high quality, BBA
certified cavity drain membranes, bespoke sump and pump
configurations, back-up systems, telemetry and ancillaries.
