What do you need to know about foundation piling or underpinning?

If your building requires deep foundation, expert and professional advice is an absolute necessity. The consequences of a poorly done job will be dire - each of your tradesmen will have to meticulously follow planning and safety procedures. ‘Piling’ refers to installing piles, a vertical structure element of deep foundations, while ‘underpinning’ refers to strengthening existing foundations. This could be necessary if the use of the building has changed, the properties of the soil has been altered, and so on. Underpinning is far more economical than installing entirely new foundations. Work of this kind requires heavy machinery, so ensure as much as possible that your site has no access issues. Before piling or underpinning work can begin, a structural engineer will need to assess the situation, usually by drilling a trial hole. You will likely need building regulations approval, and will also need an environmental surveyor to advise you on your best options. Obviously, this kind of work is a great undertaking and as such quotes will be for several thousands of pounds. However, getting a basic assessment can often be free of charge. Given the danger of work like this, and the consequences that will occur if the work is done poorly, it is crucial that you do a thorough examination of your tradesman’s experience, qualifications and feedback.
