The basement has been formed in cast waterproof concrete with a further membrane added to the external face and an additional, pumped system, Delta membrane added to the inside of the walls. It is unusual to construct using 3 methods of waterproofing when 2 will usually suffice, however belt and braces have been employed throughout this project. The ground floor has been built over a suspended, cast steel and concrete floor and the external walls are of brick and block with an insulated cavity. The first floor is of the same construction external walls over a suspended timber & steel floor. All floors are linked with a beautiful natural timber staircase and a lift as an alternative option. . All under a pitched roof of truss construction with Staffordshire clay tile covering. Underfloor heating has been installed throughout the property.
