Many renovation projects involve strengthening of foundations. Whenever an increase in gravity loading or a lateral load retrofit is proposed, foundation strengthening is likely to follow. Underpinning, the lowering or enlarging an existing foundation, is a basic technique of foundation strengthening. The objective is to provide a concise yet practical primer on foundation strengthening and underpinning practices. The largest segment is devoted to underpinning, including both the pit variety and the various methods involving drilled piers, micropiles, and proprietary piers.
