Our Completed Projects

“After successful completion of 2-No. retro-fit basements together to a Mews in SW7 which extended to below the road using a complex method not normally adopted for domestic dwellings we have now returned to site to complete the waterproofing allowing the follow-on trades to fit out these 2 desirable homes. ”

FEBRUARY 2014 WATERPROOFING COMPLETE — SW7

“Works have been completed at our site overlooking Wimbledon Park. The project included the construction of a 200 square metre basement with pool below an existing house and extension. The scheme was revised for top down techniques to allow the Main Contractor to safely continue refurbishment of the large detached property whilst our works took place. The project is now complete on time and on budget. ”

MAY 2014 WORKS COMPLETE IN WIMBLEDON

“The reinforced concrete structural shell has now been completed to the retro-fit basement in this quiet prestigious Wandsworth Street. Works were extended to allow for a larger basement terrace and below garden plantroom during our contract which was successfully carried out with minimal extension in time. ”

NOVEMBER 2014 STRUCTURAL SHELL COMPLETE IN WANDSWORTH

“We have achieved completion of the structural shell for a new build detached home in Putney.The basement stretches from boundary to boundary on each side and to the pavement line at the front making access and logistics the main concern, however the project has been completed 3 weeks early. ”

NOVEMBER 2014 NEWS BUILD BASEMENT IN PUTNEY

“We have completed the construction of the retro-fit basement below an end of terrace property in Fulham. This was carried out with a Fit-Out Contractor we enjoy working with who will go on to complete the fit out and hand the keys to the Client. Project completed in time and on budget.”

Holland Park is progressing well and we are now looking to adopt a top-down methodology for the remaining works. We are looking forward to starting works on a new 200 square metre basement for a block of flats in Fulham. The scheme involves piled retaining walls, underpinning, propping, bulk excavation and formation of RC basement shell, all of which we carry out reqularly on our projects.

Cellar Conversion with confidence - London

It is very important that the type of damp system needed is correctly identified from the start, because of our specialist knowledge you can rest assured that your basement waterproofing or cellar conversion has the waterproofing system it needs to meet its requirements.

WaterGuard

WaterGuard is an innovation from Abtech Basement Systems, it allows water to flow to your sump below the floor. It reduces water pressure at the important wall floor junction. The patented WaterGuard system is installed within the floor wall junction around the edge of the basement construction. It has holes to accept water and a special flange that allows it to collect the water that runs down the wall before it reaches the floor. There are currently over 24,000m WaterGuard systems installed in the U.K. each year.

Membrane Systems

Our cavity drainage membranes are installed in many different situations from very wet basements liable to flooding through to damp walls and cellar conversion work. Combined with the cavity they provide thermal properties as well which assist in providing thermal resistance creating warmer environments. Drying times of finishes are also drastically reduced.

Pump Systems

Abtech are recommended and fully trained installers of Delta and Basement Systems products. We are able to supply and install a wide range of units for waterproofing, rainwater discharge and general drainage from kitchens and toilets, from a single pump to dual units, battery back ups, alarm systems and even units that will text or e-mail you in the event of a fault. We can provide a system to suit your project.
