Basements and Underground Structures

To provide a dry environment, any structure built below ground level will require waterproofing. Choosing the most appropriate waterproofing system will depend on a number of factors including:

  • Newbuild or refurbishment
  • Depth below ground level
  • Construction type / material
  • Soil type
  • Proposed end use
  • Soil contaminants / ground gasses

Our technical department are able to provide information on the most appropriate waterproofing system for a given project. On larger projects, site visits can be arranged.

This website provides further information about waterproofing the following types of underground structures:

Even where underground structures have been built using expensive waterproof concrete to BS 8007, consideration will still need to be given to the waterproofing of construction joints.
