The house is prepared, carpets are removed and stored off site, tiles and cabinetry were covered and protected. We also transplanted a number of the plants for replanting when the job is finished.
The house is marked out ready to have the internal cores drilled.
With the slab plug removed we hand excavate down so we can pour our lifting pads.
External lifting pads are poured, these are typically 800mm below ground level and are spaced around 2 meters apart. This house over 40 external and over 30 internal lifting pads.
With the internal holes excavated, DPC is applied ready for the lifting process.
Once lifted, the foundation is propped and readied for the final external pour which include linking the external pads and encapsulation the ring foundation.
