Under Pinning


Underpinning Permits in Canada refer to the official authorization required from local authorities to undertake the process of underpinning a building’s foundation.

Underpinning involves strengthening and stabilizing the existing foundation by extending it deeper into the ground, allowing for additional support or to accommodate structural changes. These permits ensure that the underpinning work adheres to safety standards, engineering specifications, and building codes. Detailed plans, including excavation methods and structural reinforcements, are typically required for approval.

Obtaining the necessary underpinning permits is essential to ensure the structural integrity of the building and to avoid potential hazards or damage to neighboring properties.
