As part of the overall redevelopment of the centre of Hemel Hempstead, RG Carter were awarded the £15M contract to construct this new 75000 square foot council offices facility with a Library. The project designed by Aukett Swanke was awarded planning permission early in 2015 and construction began in mid 2015. Practical completion was achieved early 2017.
FIS were able to provide full structural waterproofing design and advice to RG Carter construction to enable the smooth construction process at groundworks stage when the reinforced concrete frame and groundworks contractor began on site with the retaining walls and slab for the basement car park.
FIS supported the contractors during the waterproofing installation phase with responsive detail design by CSSW qualified technicians and quality control inspections prior to concrete pours. The quality control inspections ensured the quality of installation was to the correct standard to allow the issue of a 25 year guarantee.
