Underpinning is necessary on a structure where settlement has occurred for one of the below most common reasons:
Differential Settlement … this could be caused by uneven loading of the building and insufficient load bearing foundations.
Increase in Loading … this could be due to the addition of an extra storey or an increase in imposed loadings such as that which may occur with a change of use.
Lowering of Adjacent Ground and all removal of lateral support usually required when constructing a basement adjacent to existing foundations or development of an adjacent property.
