As part of the Wykamol dedication to promoting high levels of professionalism across the construction and renovation industry, we offer a selection of training sessions and seminars approved by RIBA and ABE. One of the many companies to take advantage of this invaluable training is LDM Contracting Services, who have recently completed an impressive basement conversion in Lancashire.

LDM Contracting Services was established in 1991 by Lee Marson, who started out as a plumber’s apprentice in 1982 for one of the leading private building firms in the UK. Working from the start with such a prestigious company trained Lee to work to an impeccably high standard, a trait which he has carried on since. His dedication has seen LDM Contracting Services grow and develop into a renowned company working on a wide variety of domestic and industrial construction and renovation projects. The company recently joined the Construction Guarantee Services (CGS) scheme, proving its technical competence and ensuring any work carried out is fully covered by an insurance-backed guarantee.

The recent basement conversion completed by LDM Contracting Services was to a property on the busy thoroughfare of Manchester Road in Bury. As can be seen from the photographs, the basement was a damp and unwelcoming area, requiring a full basement waterproofing system before floors could be laid or walls installed.

Insulation and soundproofing was first installed followed by basement waterproofing membrane to support the full drainage system, allowing water to be directed appropriately away from the property. Once the cellar waterproofing system was complete, work began on laying the floor and creating the internal space. Plastering and finishing was then carried out, leaving an attractive, spacious area flooded with natural light.

Converting a basement into a habitable space continues to grow in popularity as people seek to expand their home instead of incurring the much higher costs of moving. This represents a growing number of opportunities for contractors, who should ensure they are fully conversant with the latest materials and methods - our training courses, seminars and ongoing after-support offers the perfect way to achieve this.

Wykamol supported LDM Contracting Services throughout this project, providing materials of a highly professional standard along with expert advice.
