Saving a Grand Designs Basement from Complete Disaster - Waterproofing in East London

Case Study
A young couple building their dream first home - and filmed by Channel 4’s Grand Designs - fell foul of rogue contractors when their site became a basement disaster.

Excavations performed contrary to the Structural Engineer’s instructions resulted in the banks falling in beneath the street,
whilst the shutters burst inwards under the weight of the compacted concrete. When the site was left in this condition, Newton recommended MJ Rooney to take on one of the trickiest challenges in their 30 years.
