Basements built since 1980


Watford, Hertfordshire

Two basements, one project

The client wanted us to build two large basements in Watford. One for himself and his family and one for his parents, both living together on the same plot. The two of them were so designed that the sun would shine into the basement as long as possible so that the rooms would be very bright all day.

We could offer a solution that enabled us to build these two constructions in just seven weeks. In a 131,80 m² and 106,50 m² sized basement, the children of the family can now play in their own toy paradise all day, and the big ones may relax with a billiard game while the rest of the family is watching a movie in their home cinema. With our patented Thermosafe system and its internal insulation, they reached a fantastic U-value of 0,25 W/m²K and so they can save a good deal of maintenance costs. Likewise thanks to our Aquasafe technology they can be sure to have no problems with incoming groundwater. Combined with the additional space that a basement provides, this adds a lot of value to their new homes. Glatthaar welcomes the new homeowners to their economically build houses.
