What Is Underpinning?

Underpinning is a reliable and cost-effective technique used in construction to strengthen, repair or stabilize the failing foundations of existing buildings. It involves excavating soil from underneath the existing foundation and replacing it with stronger materials such as concrete or steel. This process creates a new, stable base that can support the weight of the structure above it.
