Building your basement extension

IMKO London, as a general contractor, provides full service construction covering every aspects of basement construction whatever it is an extension or conversion. In case you want to build a brand new high-end basement the excavation and construction process depends on a few factors of which our project managers assess before any work begins.

Groundwork

Most important question is how deep your basement is going to be? Is it a cellar extension? One or multi-level basement? The new basement must support the vertical load of the building above it to avoid any damage or collapsing later on, so our skilled managers can decide to use the underpinning or piling method.

Staying in

If the client or occupier desires to stay in the building during the basement construction work, then the tunnelling method is the way to go, when the hole for the basement is dug from the side and the ground floor of the building stays intact. With basement conversion you save a lot of time and cost skipping this step.

Waterproofing

The natural environment must be considered and investigated. The quality of the soil and other geology features as the ground water level have their own impact on any basement construction or conversion. The latter mostly matters when the project managers decide the water proofing methods as barrier, structurally integral or drained cavity.
