A recent project undertaken by the Emmerson Critchley team, which specialises in providing traditional building services, was to underpin a Grade II Listed property in Bedford.
The period property was in need of underpinning in order to maintain its structural integrity. Essentially, the process of underpinning involves putting in place a solid foundation below ground level to support and/or strengthen the building. As with all underpinning projects, this one required considered and carful planning to prevent the building from moving while the work was being undertaken. Nevertheless, thanks to the experience and expertise offered by the Emmerson Critchley team, this was a straightforward task that was successfully executed by the team.
