We have carried out underpinning works to a depth of up to 8.0m from ground level. Confined space training is necessary for this type of operation with appropriate shoring to resist the earth pressure. Where possible, we prefer to execute underpinning work in a single stage as at eradicates the progressive settlement experienced when a building rests on multi stage underpinning. Continuity of reinforcement can be gained in single stage underpinning.
Where special foundations are to be considered, we have adopted a system whereby the underpinning is formed in mass concrete with external reinforcement in the form of UC sections being embedded in the lining wall.
