I agree with the Bituthene recommendation.  Also, since the basement walls will be new, can't you design the walls as one would do at a pool?  Add waterstops at the wall/footing intersection, tighter reinforcing spacing, mix design?

In this application, stay away from products called ‘damp-proofing’.
