Special Cases

Among the special cases our company has dealt with is the conservation of the building status quo when creating elevator pits in existing buildings. For greater depths, we also undertake excavation of the elevator shaft.

We can also help you with other special cases:

  • We are able to move smaller building structures or elements horizontally. This process requires a suitable thrust support which is prepared individually.
  • In earthquake regions, there is the option of building-in spring elements instead of load distribution beams. The same system can likewise be applied to isolating vibration in machine foundations.

The Machine Foundation

By utilising this method, the machine foundation for a large milling centre with a maximum permitted settlement of 0.15 mm per half-year was set on deep foundations. On a smaller scale, underpinning is possible by horizontally press-driving larger hollow sections.
