Newton Waterproofing contributes to £165m creation of one of London’s grandest hotels

Newton Waterproofing has made a significant contribution to the £165m transformation of a unique, Grade I listed building in Piccadilly into one of London’s grandest hotels.

The 18,000m² Cambridge House project includes six adjacent Grade II listed residences, while a four-level basement will house a spa as well as the hotel’s back-of-house and servicing areas.

To deliver a reliable, watertight solution for this project, Newton Waterproofing, the UK’s leading independent designers and suppliers of guaranteed waterproofing systems, is working closely with architect PDP London and enabling works contractor Deconstruct UK throughout the design and installation process.

Deconstruct UK Project Director Mark Makinson comments:

“Newton have been involved from the outset and have provided a first-class service to ensure we provide a robust solution to this prestigious project.”

There are currently three main buildings where extensive excavations are taking place, requiring differing waterproofing solutions to cater for the new-build basement areas and existing elements – all up to four storeys below ground.

Buildings 1 and 3 are both benefitting from the full Newton CDM System cavity drain membrane waterproofing solution, which will capture, depressurise and remove any ingressing ground water via a series of Trojan-Pro pump chambers.

Meanwhile, Building 2 utilises numerous products across new and existing structures, including 403 HydroBond (installed by Newton Specialist Contractor MacLennan Waterproofing) and 315 Polymer-Waterbar to the new concrete attenuation tank, which will also be coated internally with the cementitious 103-S liquid membrane.

The same two products were also used alongside Newton’s flexible 107F liquid membrane and 106 FlexProof for construction joint waterproofing in areas where the existing brick structure interfaces with a new concrete slab.

Newton Waterproofing Managing Director Warren Muschialli comments:

“As of June, the waterproofing is underway and on-track on all three buildings, with Newton’s site services team delivering an exceptional quality assurance and training service on the installation of our products.”

“We are very proud to have been involved in this prestigious project from the start, providing our reliable services to what I’m sure will be a huge success when complete.”
