LILLIE SQUARE, LONDON
The iconic Exhibition Centre has been demolished and the land developed for housing as part of Terry Farrell’s Earls Court master plan.
We were consulted at an early stage to be part of the design team responsible for the formation of water tight basement areas within the first phase. This would include the exclusive luxury Private Residents Club serving the full development. The basement Clubhouse provides hotel style facilities for the residents including lounge, library, private dining room, cinema spa and 20 metre swimming pool with jacuzzi.
To avoid the risk of any future moisture ingress which would damage the highest quality finishes and disrupt club members, we applied the principle of BS8102:2009 and three forms of waterproofing. This involved an external Type A system, an integral water-resistant type B concrete barrier and a full internal Newton Type C cavity drain membrane system. Stonehouse installed 4 sump chambers, 8 sump pumps and 4 battery back-up systems together with the targeted application of Newton 107F reinforcement at vulnerable positions within the construction.
Our system forms the crucial barrier to any risk of water ingress and has an extendable 10 Year Guarantee with independent insurance backing. We will service the pumps annually and provide support if required.
