Rockcliffe Villas – Oldham

Stockport based construction company CSC Construction Limited contacted us to design and install a basement waterproofing system that complies with BS8102 “code of practice for protection of below ground structures against water from the ground”.

The system utilised was that of a high density polyetheylene cavity drain membrane, consiting of an 8mm stud height profile to the walls and a 20mm stud height profile to the floors complete with a central room drainage system discharging into a pre-formed sump chamber located within the store cupboard in the kitchen, the sump chamber contains an automatic submersible pump to discharge any ingressed ground water to a drainage outlet at ground floor level.
From an existing unused basement a fully functional apartment was created.
