A green roof for a subterranean room!

Monday, December 13th, 2010

The existing basement of a listed Georgian house was extended beneath the garden to connect to a new build basement, dug below an existing garden building at the edge of the property.

The new subterranean room accommodates a swimming pool and is covered with a 300 M2 turf roof. Triton’s TT Vapour Membrane was used as the primary method of waterproofing the new ground slab (basement roof) and this was covered with Platon Double Drain membrane to form a protective layer for the primary waterproofing and a drainage layer for the turf roof construction.

TT Vapour Membrane is a liquid applied coating which, once cured, provides a waterproof and ground gas proof barrier. The new slab was laid to falls and two coats of TT Vapour Membrane were applied to the slab, and returned to the upstand wall and in to pre-formed drainage discharge outlets within the upstands, which direct any excess water to a land drain below slab level.
Platon Double Drain membrane comprises a studded HDPE membrane with a Geotextile fleece layer which is heat welded to it at manufacture. Laid with the fleece layer uppermost, this filters any fines, clay or soil from entering the intended drainage/water collection point.
