UNDERPINNING & FOUNDATIONS

Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons and always requires the specialist knowledge and expertise of a reputable company to identify and design the underpinning process.

Property can experience movement in its walls or floors for a variety of different reasons. Resulting in anything ranging from minor cosmetic cracking to more substantial movement that renders a building virtually derelict, this is an issue that needs looking at as early as possible.

UNDERPINNING MAY BE REQUIRED IF:

  • The original building foundation is simply not strong enough
  • The original building foundation is simply not stable enough
  • The usage of the building structure has changed i.e. imposed loads
  • The properties of the soil supporting the building foundation has changed i.e. subsidence

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO SUBSIDENCE IN YOUR PROPERTY

The basic principle behind many underpinning projects is to transfer the load of the problem building from the current unsuitable ground to a deeper level where ground of a suitable bearing capacity is found.

Foundations can be added in a variety of different types depending on weight of the building, the bearing capacity of the soil and weather conditions. Our team of ground workers have the ability to utilise a variety of foundations whether they are for new build homes, commercial or industrial developments.
