Underpinning in the construction industry refers to the strengthening and stabilisation of the foundations of a building or structure. It is a method of construction where the depth of the foundations of the building is increased. The soil under the existing foundation is excavated and replaced with new foundation material in phases. Concrete is the most common material used.

Underpinning is important in the following scenarios: 

  1. The building has moved as a result of poor soil or changes in the soil conditions (subsidence is a good example here)
  2. There has been a decision to add another storey to a building and the depth of the existing foundations is not sufficient to support the modified building’s weight.

Issues that require underpinning are not exclusive to specific buildings, as the problems can arise in both new and old buildings. Time is often a big causal factor in moving walls and subsidence, however, the quality of ground beneath the building is actually the main cause of problems in most cases.
