When it comes to safeguarding the stability and longevity of your commercial property, the concept of commercial underpinning takes center stage. At allenCO Construction, we specialise in the art of strengthening, elevating, and sustaining settling foundations.

What is underpinning?

In essence, underpinning refers to the meticulous process of repairing, restoring, and reinforcing the damaged or sinking foundation of a commercial or business structure. In this example, you can see the repair of collapsing walls in the underground carpark for a commercial office building located on Glen Osmond Road, Eastwood.

How do I know if my commercial property needs underpinning?

There are several tell-tale signs that your commercial structure may require underpinning:

  • The existing foundation exhibits weakness or instability due to settlement.
  • Natural occurrences, such as floods or droughts, have led to shifts or movements in the building’s structure.
  • Alterations in the soil supporting the foundation have taken place.

Our dedicated team of professionals at allenCO Construction is committed to offering comprehensive advice and tailored repair solutions for a variety of commercial structural and foundation concerns throughout Adelaide.

Whether you oversee a sprawling warehouse, a factory grappling with significant structural integrity issues, an office space plagued by a compromised foundation, or a government project in need of specialised attention — our team of experts excels at devising bespoke solutions for all manner of complex foundation repair and commercial underpinning challenges.

Why is underpinning necessary?

In the world of commercial property, a strong foundation is vital for stability. It’s not just an extra service; it’s a proactive way to protect your investment. It helps fix issues like cracks and uneven floors caused by settling or shifting, and also supports expansions and keeps the structure safe. By acting early, you can prevent bigger problems and save money.

When is commercial underpinning necessary?

Underpinning becomes a necessity when the soil composition beneath the building or warehouse undergoes a transformation. Factors such as flooding can disrupt or erode the soil, triggering the need for intervention. Similarly, major plumbing repairs, adjacent excavation endeavors, or even the toppling of a nearby tree can uproot the ground beneath a structure.

While the underpinning process itself can be complex, its potential to safeguard your commercial property investment is imperative. Our accomplished underpinning and foundation repair team undertakes a thorough inspection to gauge the extent of damage and devises a comprehensive solution, backed by a detailed quote for repairs following engineer specifications.
