Underpinning can be done in one of two ways: one, improve the foundation system by enlarging the existing foundations or adding new foundations, and two, to improve the properties of the soil below the foundations without touching the building at all.
Moving buildings is an economical option for building a new home by Underpinning Slab Foundations. It provides immediate equity: many of the people who move buildings do so for investment purposes. Moving also brings great benefits to the environment. Moving existing buildings consumes very little natural resources to build completely new buildings. In addition, many of the materials used in building construction are produced in an unsustainable way.
Moving buildings preserve history. Many of the buildings and houses we have moved to are of historical significance. These historic buildings would not have expected the expansion of hospitals, highways, and parks. However, the historical residue is preserved because they can be moved to better places instead of being demolished.
Why is Underpinning Necessary?
There is a variety of reasons why underpinning might need to be carried out. These are usually related to subsidence issues. Some examples of why underpinning might be necessary are:
- A change in soil conditions under the foundation.
- Soil characteristics were not properly taken into account during the design phase.
- The original foundation is no longer suitable/strong enough.
- The construction/repair/excavation of neighboring structures endangers the current foundations.
- Additional floors are to be constructed underground
