Design stage to waterproof and gas proof, Wykamol waterproofing help again
July 2021

The Wykamol group were asked to look at plans for a new build Apartment building in the ever-popular Tooting area of London by managing director of Altus construction, Simon Widdowfield.

Site plans were looked at and a plan of action for the Waterproofing was drawn up including specialist drawings to waterproof and Gas proof this property.

Once in the Ground Wykamol Technical Managers attended site on various occasions to check on progress and to help and advise on the installation of our 7 layer Gas and Structural waterproofing product Wykamol Bond, this product deals with all ground gases and any contaminants in the ground such as Hydrocarbons and Voc, compounds but also is a full type A waterproofing product.

Checks were made when this was being installed before the concrete slab and walls were poured. Once the structure was up to full finished levels a Type C Cavity Drain Membrane system was installed, again the Wykamol Team attended site and checked on the fantastic installation of this system.

As can be seen in the photos all checks included the drainage system as well as checking joints and seals of the system.

Dealing with New build properties we can advise from a very early stage and be part of the design team on the structure.

We can even hold the Pi insurance on the waterproofing design. The benefits are there to be seen clearly with a fully compliant Bs8102 scheme which then had a 10-year Nhbc warranty given on the project.

Wykamol when you start a project were only a phone call away from a free design and meeting to discuss the scheme.
