Luxury Lillie Square development watertight thanks to Newton Waterproofing

Leading independent supplier of structural waterproofing systems, Newton Waterproofing, has provided the perfect solution for a huge development in London.

Stonehouse Property Care, a Newton Specialist Basement Contractor, worked alongside Sir Robert McAlpine on the luxury Lillie Square project in Earls Court.

One of the most prestigious developments in the capital, it has transformed a 7.4-acre car park into over 800 multi-million-pound luxury residences and will eventually stretch from Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge to Kensington Olympia.

The development also contains London’s largest private residents’ club, the majority of which is below ground, and boasting a lounge, library, private dining room, cinema, gym, spa facilities and a 20-metre swimming pool with jacuzzi.

Phase 1 of the project required robust waterproofing and the formation of a watertight basement to house this luxury residents club.

Newton Waterproofing and Stonehouse were consulted at an early stage to be part of the design team and provide a guaranteed waterproofing solution that would comply with the requirements of both BS 8102:2009 and any third-party warranty providers.

The solution was to design a combined waterproofing solution using three forms of waterproofing to avoid the risk of any future moisture ingress which would damage the high-quality finishes and disrupt club members.

Stonehouse applied the principles of BS 8102:2009 to create a Grade 3 ‘completely dry’ internal environment. This involved an external Type A barrier achieved with the Newton 107F cementitious, liquid-applied waterproofing membrane; an integral water-resistant Type B concrete structure, and a full internal Newton Type C cavity drain membrane system installed throughout the basement area of the clubhouse.

They also installed four Newton Titan-Pro sump chambers containing dual NP400 pumps, as well as Newton High Water Alarms, Inverters and Battery Back-Up protection to create a truly failsafe system.

Stonehouse Property Care’s MD Graham Stone commented:

“We have worked closely with Newton Waterproofing for almost 20 years, and we wouldn’t want to work with any other waterproofing supplier on such a large scale, luxury new build project as Lillie Square.

“The quality of their waterproofing materials combined with their on-site installation and technical support means I can confidently specify, install and guarantee a fault-free waterproofing solution, and ultimately provide the best result for the client.”

This Newton system forms the crucial barrier to any risk of water entry and has an extendable 10 Year Guarantee with independent insurance backing.

For Newton Waterproofing’s MD Warren Muschialli, Lillie Square is yet another success story for the company.

Warren said,

“We were thrilled to have been involved in a project as high-profile as Lillie Square and it’s yet another project that showcases our waterproofing in a massive new build project.”

“It’s also the perfect example of our elite Specialist Basement Contractors, with Stonehouse providing outstanding design and installation of our high-quality products.”
