What is Underpinning?

Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of a structure, usually a building, and there are a variety of underpinning methods that can be employed to achieve this, including mass concrete underpinning, mini-piled underpinning, beam and base underpinning, and expanding resin injection underpinning.

There are a number of reasons as to why underpinning foundations may be required, including the purpose for which the structure is used has changed, the foundation is no longer strong or stable enough to bear the load of the structure, there’s a need to increase the load capacity of the existing foundations so as to support the load of an additional storey added to the structure, and stabilisation of foundation is required because of erosion or other soil related issues.
