Underpinning and waterproofing in Knightsbridge

Posted on

Mixamate recently worked on an underpinning project at Pont Street Mews in Knightsbridge, West London, providing waterproofed concrete to create additional living space in a newly constructed basement. ‘Building down’ has become an increasingly popular practice within central London in recent years, allowing building companies to create additional space in often heavily built-up areas.

“Part of the project at Pont Street Mews required underpinning and waterproofing,” says Marcin of Cordles. “Part of the structure had to be formed from waterproof concrete including water-tank pit, lift pit, etc. We also needed a quick, clean operation that would incur minimal disruption to local residents. And for these reasons we chose Mixamate – the company provides a printed delivery note issued directly by the operating machine showing the exact type of concrete and the additives used within the mix. Their All-in-One lorry is also a really good option for limited spaces, and is less noisy than a normal concrete pump. We would strongly recommend Mixamate and will be using them again.”

The unique Mixamate All-in-One concrete pumping truck is capable of the delivery, mixing and pumping of materials from a single vehicle. This service is now also available for screed and you can view our latest on-site video here.
