Golders Green Basement

Golders Green Basement Construction. The client needed their original bungalow home almost completely demolished – only a few walls remained. We were then contracted to build a new home on the site, including the construction of a rear-facing basement.

The basement is a completely new addition to the property – excavations removed around fifty lorries worth of clay and soil. The basement’s 600 mm thick walls are internally reinforced, as is the floor. To ensure the basement is totally waterproof, we installed a top of the range tanking system produced by Delta in Germany.

The tanking system consists of waterproof membranes which are mounted on the walls and subsequently under screed. Two pump stations were installed, the first removes ground water whereas the second removed bathroom waste. Both include high-level alarms to ensure complete safety during operation. We are providing peace of mind with a thirty year warranty and certificate once complete.

Internally, the basement provides two bedrooms along with two bathrooms. We also installed a lightwell and glass walkway in the ceiling of the basement providing ample natural light. Stairs lead from the basement into the property’s rear garden allowing easy access as well as another source of natural light.
