Structual Alterations Toronto

Creating new usable space underground often requires some significant structural alterations. In most of our underpinning jobs, we remove the existing masonry or wood columns and replace them with stronger steel columns and new pad footings at the new basement height for increased stability. Oftentimes we swap a wood beams for steel beams that can span longer distances between supports. Depending on our client's needs, we use creative ways to eliminate columns or load bearing walls to achieve flexible open plan spaces.
