Newton specialist basement contractor completes waterproofing works on Grade II listed building

Newton specialist basement contractor AP Gooch Basement Waterproofing
 has installed the Newton System 500 waterproofing solution to a new-build extension of Pickenham Hall in Norfolk for Kier Construction.

AP Gooch installed Newton System 500 to manage and remove any ingressing water. Newton 508 8mm Cavity Drain Membrane was installed to the walls and floors of this large basement.

Newton System 500 is a fully maintainable waterproofing solution so complies with BS 8102:2009 requirements (the British Standard Code of Practice for Protection of Below Ground Structures Against Water from the Ground).

The floor build up was 50mm of closed cell insulation on a structural slab with Newton 508 on top of the insulation with a 65mm screed to finish. Newton Basedrain was installed around the wall/floor junction and across day work joints. Basedrain collects any ingressing water and diverts it out of the structure via Newton Sump Pumps. As such, AP Gooch incorporated two Titan-Pro Chambers into the design, including twin NP400 pumps.

The waterproofing works installed by AP Gooch created a habitable Grade 3 environment, as defined by BS 8102:2009. AP Gooch delivered the result well within tight time constraints and the client was very happy with the results.

“Kier Construction were extremely happy with our performance completing the works two weeks ahead of schedule in this 3,000 square foot basement,”  said Anthony Gooch, Newton Specialist Basement Contractor.
