Underpinning

: The process of strengthening and stabilizing the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons:


  • The original foundation is simply not strong or stable enough.
  • The usage of the structure has changed.
  • The properties of the soil supporting the foundation may have changed (possibly through subsidence) or were mischaracterized during design.
  • The construction of nearby structures necessitates the excavation of soil supporting existing foundations.
  • It is more economical, due to land price or otherwise, to work on the present structure’s foundation than to build a new one.

Underpinning is accomplished by extending the foundation in depth or in breadth so it either rests on more a supportive soil stratum or distributes its load across a greater area.
