Another basement waterproofing project in Africa completed - this time it's the British Embassy

cavity membrane for basement in Algeria

The ULTRA Type C cavity membrane system has been installed in the British Embassy in Algeria. Our approved contractor, London Waterproofing Solutions (LWS) took on the waterproofing design and installation.

The original plan was for the Embassy’s own team to install the system, however as they had no previous experience with doing so and this being a large project with so many potential issues, it was decided that LWS would send one of their own teams over to manage the installation.

The project presented several challenges, including training the labourers on site, working with poor quality substrates and the heat, which was 40°+ on most days.

When waterproofing an existing basement, there are always challenges to overcome, both in the design and installation. Often your choices can be limited and having the right knowledge and experience is the only way to ensure the system is installed successfully.
