Under Pinning

Description

Under pinning is the process of strengthening or stabilising a structure using a range of techniques including beams and piles, props, or mass application of concrete. 

 

Usage

Underpinning is often required as a result of failure associated with inadequate construction of building foundations, inadequate bearing capacity, issues with soil and drainage or a change of use of a structure. Many buildings constructed without guidance from a structural engineer require rectification, with underpinning used to strengthen footings.

In addition, changing the use of a building – for example, adding additional floors – can necessitate an increase in the load capacity of its foundations. Temporary shoring and propping is usually required to stabilise a structure while underpinning work is completed. Products used in underpinning may include Shore 100, Shore 400 and titan props
