Basement Waterproofing – Regent’s Park

Basement Waterproofing System to a Grade 1 listed iconic property


 

 

Why Renlon were called in

Renlon were called in by Richard Mitzman Architects to undertake the waterproofing of the basement, vaults and ground floor.

This was to future proof the property against any water coming into the property from the ground below or coming in from above the vaults.

History

The property is on the eastern side of Regent’s Park in the London Borough of Camden. Designed by famous royal architect John Nash and built in 1826, the terrace comprises three main blocks which are joined by impressive ionic triumphal linking arches. There are 31 houses in the terrace with 2 houses that form the side blocks to the terraces. These have strong projecting end pavilions faced with ionic columned porches, this impressive property being one of them. The roof is adorned with classical figures and pediment. The property has accommodation spread over five floors, providing spacious and elegant space, as well as having breath taking views across Regent’s Park.

Project

The project involved waterproofing to the main basement area, external vaults and rendering to the lower ground floor. This included a Damp proof course, specialist render and tanking works to the kitchen, dining room, hallway and pantry. Ground floor included specialist render and tanking to the lounge staff en-suite, staff dressing and staff bedroom. Specialist render was also applied to the wine cellar and 3 under pavement vaults.

Outcome

Renlon designed a waterproofing system which would allow the basement to be used as extended living space and the under-pavement vaults to be used as a space for dry storage. Our surveyor considered a range of options to meet our client’s requirements and had no doubt that the following waterproofing system would provide the best solution for the end user.
