Basement Construction

The London Underpinning team provides bespoke basement construction for clients. We employ a range of underpinning techniques with the aim of ensuring solid foundations and building solidity.

UNDERPINNING IS KEY TO BASEMENT CONSTRUCTION

Basement Underpinning

Underpinning the original foundations is a key element of basement construction. The underpins extend the original foundations down to the desired level and this allows the excavation of soil to form the basement cavity.

At London Underpinning, we specialise in creating what we call a ‘waterproof envelope’, we underpin the walls, excavate the soil, introduce drainage, form the basement slab and then waterproof the structure using Delta cavity membranes. We then hand over the ‘waterproof envelope’ to the client and their fit-out team to complete the project.

Mass Concrete Underpinning

The most common form of underpinning, also known as traditional underpinning. At London Underpinning we have installed mass concrete underpins all across London, from Kensington to Stratford, from Lewisham to Hampstead.

Base and Beam Underpinning

Another popular underpinning technique. We recently used this underpinning method on a site in Enfield, where good ground was a little too deep for traditional underpins.

Mini Pile Underpinning

Mini piles are a useful underpinning aid when poor ground conditions make it uneconomical for other underpinning techniques. We recently used mini piles to form an internal piled raft in Burgess Hill.
