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 are structures that move from their original location to a new site. To move buildings or construction from one place to another is not an easy task, the process of moving buildings, and the safety measures needed to successfully move structures. To move your building or structure you need experienced teams like Underpinning Slab Foundations. Building props are an integral part of the process of moving a building, and there are several ways to achieve structural props.
The methods that can be used to move the building support that penetrates a continuous band foundation, support with columns or foundations, support with piles, pre-test support, injection, and freeze-thaw support.
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
