Basement Waterproofing | London And The UK

As an independent company, we can choose the appropriate products to  help us in waterproofing basements across the UK. The jobs we tackle vary in size when looking at the basement waterproofing needs of our clients.

MacLennan design, supply, and install waterproofing systems across London and the rest of the UK that comply with BS8102 and all third party warranty provider's requirements.

We can save money and protect clients with expert basement waterproofing design.

The following pages will set out your options for combining systems for the type of basement construction you are considering.


To comply with British Standard BS8102/2022 and Third-party warranty providers you need to appoint a CSSW qualified waterproofing specialist onto the design team before technical design (RIBA 4).

This new requirement does not mean take advice from a designer,  it does mean the CSSW  expert has to be a design team appointment. They must also have PI for the advice and design given from early design to the construction and completion of basement waterproofing.

They must have suitable experience and be able to advise on all systems and options as well as buildability, repairability, sequencing, protection, hazards and CDM. MacLennan work with many of the market leading engineering and architecture practices in the UK to design best practice, best value guaranteed basement waterproofing solutions.

Basement Waterproofing can seem risky on paper but by working with the right people and following sensible precautions, you can complete your project safely and efficiently.
