The works were to stop moisture from entering the building after mould and high-moisture levels were found in the basement and a bathroom of the property.

The adjacent external areas were excavated and treated which included rectifying building defects discovered such as a non-existent damp-proof course.

The works also revealed another surprise...

Bucket loads of insulation installed at the brickwall cavity during the construction phase of the building to prevent moisture build-up.

In addition to the structural works to treat the damp problems, a more adequate drainage system was installed for the area, which included a much-needed soakwell.
