Murray Place – St Albans, Christchurch


Problem: This beautiful, old, character home had foundations that were broken and out of level, beyond repair.


Solution: Using House Lifters’ hydraulic jacking system, we carried out a high lift on the house so that the ground conditions could be improved. We first excavated the ground and then lay geogrid reinforcement and a new hardfill base. Following that we constructed a new, enhanced, Type 2B slab and pile foundation with perimeter beam to fix the house onto.
