CASE STUDY: REED A30HP – Concrete Underpinning


LINK Building is a prominent Remedial Builder based in the regional Shepparton, Victoria. The company specialises in Underpinning, Slab Jacking and various technical projects involving ground stabilisation and foundation remediation. LINK building required a machine that could be utilised for projects requiring Underpinning, Slab Jacking, General Concrete Pumping and Block Fill work.


The process of underpinning is to stabilize and strengthen the foundation, in this case eroded by water ingress from a garden bed. The existing foundation was dug and deeper piles bored to distribute the load of the slab across a new concrete foundation. The project involved pumping 25mpa concrete a distance of 30 metres to create a new concrete foundation and eliminate the risk of further damage.
