The Basement Information Centre (TBIC)
The Basement Development Group was established in 1992. Following formalisation and the recognised need by both builders and their clients, The Basement Information Centre (TBIC) was established.
The Basement Information Centre has a strict goal, to encourage further development of those within the Basement Construction Industry and to provide home owners with information on the building process within the domestic basement sector.
The Basement Information Centre in 2016 became a specialist interest group of MPA The Concrete Centre.
The Basement Information Centre seeks to assist homeowners, developers and builders alike in the design and construction of quality basements on new developments and existing structures (retro-fit basements) alike.
The Basement Information Centre seeks to offer guidance and develop documents to simplify design to enable high performance of all basement constructions. The Basement Information Centre provides information on products and materials available for use in basement design and construction whilst encouraging good practice in all aspects of design and construction through promotion of guidance.
TBIC offers Guidance Documents and free downloadable guides. Delta Membrane Systems Ltd would strongly recommend anyone seeking to invest in a basement extension review these documents and purchase guidance’s accordingly.
