Client built a house over as 80 year old basement (old school house boiler room), covering the ground on three sides outside basement walls. Ten years later, has major problem with water seeping through the old concrete walls of basement. The exterior of the basement walls can only be accessed on one side by excavation to permit installation of a waterproofing membrane. Anyone have recommendations on getting the other three sides dry (or at least, drier)? Basement is 35' long × 15' wide × 9' high, with concrete ceiling (floor of old school house); no data available on thickness of walls.
