Underpinning is the process of reinforcing and strengthening the foundation of an existing building or other structures, as necessitated

  

Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons:

  • The original foundation isn’t strong or stable enough.

  • The usage of the structure has changed.

  • The properties of the soil supporting the foundation may have changed (possibly through subsidence) or were mischaracterized during design.

  • The construction of nearby structures necessitates the excavation of soil supporting existing foundations.

  • To increase the depth or load capacity of existing foundations to support the addition of another storey to the building (above or below grade).

  • It is more economical, due to land price or otherwise, to work on the present structure’s foundation than to build a new one.

  • Earthquake, flood, drought or other natural causes have caused the structure to move, requiring stabilisation of foundation soils and/or footings.
