About This Project

A piled raft foundation combines two foundation-building techniques into a hybrid design suitable for specialized circumstances. The raft foundation spreads the load of the building across the ground. Pile columns extend below the ground surface and connect to the raft foundation.

In underpinning applications, the slab is toothed into the wall of a building, divorcing it from its previous foundations. This option is frequently chosen to overcome subsidence or settlement problems.
