Underpinning

To mitigate settlement on existing structures, helical anchors and foundation underpinning brackets are attached to the existing footing to transfer loads to the stable soil at depth. Foundation bracket installation is the ideal method for adding stories to a structure after foundation damage, and depending on job specific qualifications, this system may allow for the structure to be raised to its original position. Atlas Foundation Company has successfully completed many of these “attempt to lift” operations.
