Common Uses

  • Underpin with deep foundation elements
  • Raise settled foundations or slabs
  • Stabilize sinkhole conditions

Foundation underpinning is an option to treating soil. Foundation underpinning techniques bypass the problem soils by installing structural elements to transfer the building’s load to underlying competent soils or bedrock. Underpinning techniques can be used to raise settled structures. Underpinning foundations can be designed such that the completed solution is below-grade and the aesthetics of the structure are not compromised.
