Chepstow – Basement Waterproofing Shell Case Study

Published: 28th January 2021

In this case study, we look at a recent basement waterproofing shell that Econekt carried out in Chepstow.

Waterproofing is extremely important in any self-build structure that incorporates a basement into the plans. When using ICF in this, you can ensure that your home is secure against many problems including mould, rot, damp or any problems that can arise with adverse weather conditions. ICF has long been hailed as the best in the business when it comes to basement waterproofing. It holds many benefits over traditional materials used in basement construction.

Basement dig in progress

What did the client want?

Our client was looking for a single contractor who would be able to complete a structurally waterproof basement shell for their self-build project. This would be left ready for the next contractor, Passiframe, to build their super-structure kit above.

Sometimes our clients may only want one aspect of their project carried out by Econekt, and we are absolutely okay with that! We pride ourselves on flexibility and are able to assist at most points, big or small.

What did we do?

We provided our Passivhaus system for the project. This involved the supply and installation of all external and internal structural ICF walls alongside the Insulated Foundation System for the basement of the property.

Following this, we installed a suspended concrete garage floor slab and placed all of the supporting steelwork easily allowing the next contractor to install the mid-floor posi-joist.

Working alongside Triton Waterproofing Systems, we helped to specify and install their products in the basement to provide a waterproof shell, and just like all of our waterproofing services, we offered a 10 year guarantee with this.

Benefits to the client

Like all of our projects, however large or small, there are lots of benefits to the end user.

With this one, there was a single point of contact throughout their entire basement structure and waterproofing strategy. This is extremely important to ensure there is absolutely no margin for error!

We also offer a ten year guarantee with our waterproofing services, so you can rest easy knowing nothing will go wrong.

Our client here had little risk when choosing to build their basement with Econekt and our industry partners. With our decades of technical expertise and ten year waterproofing guarantee offered, you will be hard pushed to find a better person for the job.
