Pile Jacking to jack structures back to level

Building before

Jacking Applications

It is sometimes possible to jack the supported structure back to level off the installed stabilizers before concreting the heads. The success of this operation is governed by:

  • Weight of the structure (not generally a major issue)
  • Capability of the foundation to withstand and distribute the jacking forces applied
  • Ability of structure to move without causing further significant damage
  • Freedom to return to its original position (crack cleanliness, bracing by other building components)
  • Adhesion of slab bases onto clay soils Quite often jacking is worth trying if the only alternative is an expensive take down and rebuild
