Types of underpinning methods

Beam and base underpinning

  • For the majority of underpinning projects we use the beam and base method as it is more technically advanced and cost effective than the traditional mass concrete method.
  • A reinforced concrete beam is constructed below, above or in replacement of the existing footing.
  • This reinforced concrete beam transfers load to mass concrete bases, which are constructed at strategic locations to ensure stability.
  • Base sizes and depths are adapted to the ground conditions.
  • The concrete beam is designed to the configuration of the building and the applied loads.

Mass concrete underpinning

  • Traditional method of underpinning.
  • Suitable for shallow depths and in stable/dry conditions.
  • Foundations are excavated in controlled stages.
  • Excavations are then filled with concrete to ensure structural stability to the building.

Piled raft underpinning

  • Ideal method to be used when whole structure requires underpinning.
  • Recommended for deep foundations or in areas where excavation is difficult.
  • Piles are placed in strategic locations by loading conditions.
  • Needle beams are then placed to support the walls load.
