Product Description

Technically there has been a substantial reduction in the use of underpinning in recent years, with greater consideration being given to less disruptive means of stabilising affected properties, e.g. tree management. This publication considers:

• Concerns of each relevant party
• Insurance matters
• The causes of damage to buildings
• Initial appraisal of the property
• Further investigations
• Trees and tree management
• Subterranean, substructure and superstructure repairs
• Remedial works to properties damaged by subsidence
• Research and future activities

While primarily aimed at structural engineers, the publication is aimed at a wide readership including mortgage lenders, consulting engineers, property valuers, insurers, builders, solicitors, surveyors, loss adjusters, local authorities and property owners.
