Construction Strengthening & Stabilisation

Underpinning involves gaining access to underneath the existing concrete in order to install additional load-bearing piles/struts/beams to strengthen the construction from the ground up. The method chosen will be based upon expert analysis. Most commonly, we carry out mass concrete and mini piling; highly trusted, reliable and cost-effective techniques. In order to check suitability, the current footings will be inspected using trial holes as well as a structural inspection. Any works performed must also be approved by your structural engineer/LA and carried out in compliance with current regulations.
