Project Description

The Project: The redevelopment and conversion of the period manor property, Wellesbourne House into 41 unique flats set within the original manor gardens.
As part of the extensive redevelopment and conversion of the former manor, Wellesbourne House, Protectahome were approached to provide a specialist damp proofing solution.

The original Wellesbourne House dates back into the 18th century and has been most notably owned by Juliette Low, founder of the American Girl Scouts and her husband William, who owned Wellesbourne’s first motor car.
The site was to be redeveloped into 41 unique, luxury apartments within a gated community with access to the original manor grounds. As part of the development, a modern damp proofing solution was required to the Manor House, Annex and Coach House.

The property itself has a listed façade and still retains some features dating back to the Victorian era including the grand entrance lobby.

Protectahome’s CSRT qualified surveyor devised a scheme of remedial damp proofing, namely chemical damp proof course injection, that would offer a guaranteed solution for the ongoing development.

Following an extensive strip out programme, Protectahome’s highly experienced, specialist operatives attended site to inject over 350 linear metres of chemical damp proof course into the masonry. The damp proof course forming a barrier against rising dampness that would protect the later installed finishes.

All works were completed on time and within budget before a long term guarantee was issued. The client later commented their satisfaction at the entire process and has since instructed Protectahome to work with them on several other redevelopment projects.
