Underpinning

In 2005 Construk’s directors pioneered the use of vacuum excavation for underpinning buildings.

Even today engineers who see this first hand wonder why underpinning was ever done any other way. Vacuum excavation for underpinning has many advantages:

  • Clean - Most material is carried off site immediately in the vacuum truck.

  • Safe – Workers aren’t under the foundations at any time. Vacuum Excavation is non destructive so in most cases underground assets can remain connected.

  • Reliable – Underpins are still a typical mass concrete pin no toxic chemicals or magic fixes.

  • Recorded – Excavations are measured and the bases of the underpins tested before concrete is placed guarantying performance and results.
