Underpinning retaining walls drainage

Subsidence could be caused by a drainage problem and/or inadequate foundations, sometimes exacerbated by extremes of weather conditions or removal of nearby trees. We would organise trial holes and drainage surveys to identify the exact problem and then work with builders and contractors to provide cost effective underpinning solutions and/or drainage repairs.
 

If your house or garden is built on a slope and you want to extend or re- develop you will need cost effective and simplesing on replacement drains, we have undertaken the design of drainage schemes for several new build housing and industrial projects. These have included the assessment of flow volumes, pipe size & gradient specification and the design of storm flow attenuation facilities.

Underpinning is a method of stabilising walls and foundations without the need to demolish the existing structure. We offer the following underpinning services:

• Traditional underpinning
• Cantilever needle beams
• Piled nibbed slab
• Needle beams

We provide structural calculations for piles, groundbeams and slab to meet approval of all Building Regulation Requirements.
