The choice of a rational, effective way of strengthening of foundations and bases is fundamental in the reconstruction of buildings. The strengthening of foundations of buildings means the work carried out as a consequence of the change of the geometrical dimensions of buildings, increment of permanent or temporary loads, the construction of underground facilities within the perimeter of the building, the strengthening of load-carrying ability lost as a result of suffusion, fluctuations of groundwater level and other causes, as well as resulting deformation of the structures and the wearing. Geological engineering survey and construction of the existing foundations must precede before the decision on the need to strengthen the implementation of foundations and deciding how to gain. With the help of a professional assessment of specialized companies carried out an independent examination, by means of which the results are determined by the reason of destruction of the foundation or, in the case of increasing the area of the building, are fundamental to the adoption of a package of measures needed to ensure the reliability of the foundation. Reconstruction methods are varied and the choice of a particular method depends on the factors contributing to induced damage of the foundation and the type of building and the grounds.The reliability of reconstructed buildings is provided by a joint effort of system, “base - foundation - underground construction”.
