Underpinning process requires the following general steps:

  • Determining the required future height of the basement.
  • Coordinating with Architectural and structural engineers for required Drawing.
  • Applying for underpinning permit from the municipality
  • Hiring underpinning contractor to proceed with the underpinning process based on the approved and stamped engineering drawing
  • Coordinating with HVAC and pluming to remove and install the new HVAC and do modify the under-slab drainage and plumbing pipe due to the new drawing.
