Foundation Underpinning Performed on Commercial Structures Throughout Birmingham, AL
Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of a commercial structure, either during construction or as a remedial measure. This is a popular foundation shoring technique used in Birmingham, Alabama, and the surrounding Piedmont region. That’s because the loosely packed soils in the region can cause sudden shifts in the ground, and even worse, sinkholes. This can lead to extensive – and expensive – damage. Thankfully, underpinning services from Engineered Solutions are a great way to address this concern.
