Structural Waterproofing for New Build Basements

Creating additional underground living spaces in new builds

With the soaring cost of land and increasingly complex local planning constraints, including a basement in a new-build design makes absolute sense. We see more and more developers keen to maximise space in this way and it’s been our pleasure to contribute our basement waterproofing expertise to new-build projects for both main contractors and self-builders.

A basement can change a dwelling from merely being a place to live into a lifestyle home with any number of different below ground rooms for a whole host of uses. For relatively little additional cost at the construction stage, a new property can benefit from the extra dimension a basement provides, be it a functional plant room or versatile entertainment space.

The main consideration when embarking on the construction of a new-build basement is that the structure should be watertight. For this reason, Stonehouse offers a complete structural waterproofing service, providing specialist advice from the initial concept phase (with PI liability of £10,000,000) through to completion of the structure, including responsibility for the waterproofing system design.

Expertise and access to top quality structural basement waterproofing products and suppliers counts and there’s no room for cutting corners, so you should always use a specialist structural waterproofing contractor like Stonehouse.

We use the most up to date techniques and tools and our experienced CSSW qualified surveyors are also registered Waterproofing Design Experts as recommended by BS8102:2009. Uniquely, several of our operatives are also qualified to CSSW level ensuring on-site decisions are technically informed and considered. Our experience includes domestic projects through to multi-unit commercial enterprises.
