Underpinning

Our experienced team can undertake all types of underpinning work in London and the South-East

Underpinning is the process of stabilising and strengthening the foundations of a building. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons:

  • The original foundation is not stable enough and needs strengthening.
  • The properties of the soil supporting the foundation may have altered.
  • To increase the depth or load capacity of existing foundations to support the addition of another storey.
  • Flood, earthquake, drought or other natural causes have caused the structure to move.

ARD Building Ltd. has extensive experience in all types of underpinning of existing residential and commercial structures and forming reinforced concrete retaining walls.

If you are interested in finding out more about our structural underpinning services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our team of experts are always more than happy to help.

We engaged the services of ARD to convert our basement in to a habitable space in March 2017. We selected them as from the first appointment Peter made us feel comfortable and confident of a good result. Nothing seemed too much bother and they were so much better than the competition.

Our basement was completed on time and in budget and any snagging issues, which are inevitable with a job like this, were resolved without complaint. If I had another basement to dig I’d use ARD again.
