The Museum Of Jurassic Marine Life.
MacLennan worked with KENNEDY O’CALLAGHAN ARCHITECTS and AKS Ward to develop a suitable waterproofing system which incorporated Radon protection via the PAC System.
The Museum Of Jurassic Marine Life is a brand new immersive museum which has been designed to house The Etches Collection.
This large new-build property in Surrey had a very large basement area which needed to be waterproofed to meet BS8102 requirements, the British Standard for the Protection of Structures Against Water From the Ground.
Because it is not possible to determine the amount of potential water pressure surrounding a structure, BS8102 tells the designer to expect a head of water against the structure. In addition, BS8102 requires that all waterproofing is maintainable and repairable.
MacLennan was employed by Cardy construction to provide a suitable waterproofing solution for two refurbishments with new build basements and 1 new build property, MacLennan arranged a site visit and surveyed the area to provide an accurate specification for the new build cavity drain basement waterproofing system.
