Abbey Pynford were asked to provide a quotation and carry out mass concrete underpinning to 2 semi detached properties by Shire Consulting c/o Halifax insurance. J W Cannon were appointed main contractor on this project whom we have worked with previously on other successful underpinning projects. The underpinning scheme comprised both underpinning to the party wall of both properties and also underpinning to the front corner and bay window areas of both properties. Geological maps indicated Langley Silts and gravels in the local vicinity which comprised of a clay and silt material in the upper layers and dense gravel at new formation level. The internal floor to number 71 was removed to the lounge during enabling works and protection to the Hallway was installed by J W Cannon prior to our arrival on site. This allowed for the underpinning works to be completed to the party wall of both properties. We also took the opportunity to complete all underpinning works to number 71 from inside the Lounge area which negated the need to disturb any external surfaces or surface water drains. The underpinning to number 73 needed to be completed externally and this was completed following access provided to the neighbours property. This project was executed very well by keyman Dan Porteous and his team.
