Basements & Underpinning

basements underpinning

We are able to carry out the design of new basements and basements beneath existing buildings.

This incorporates many factors including consideration of temporary works methodology during construction, the impact of ground movements during excavation and to surrounding buildings, methods for achieving the correct grade of water tightness to suit the end-use, and knowledge of the Party Wall Act.

Underpinning schemes are developed to suit the bespoke nature of a basement, or to address damage to a building from nearby trees of poor ground for example.
