Sometimes, because of being situated below road level or adjacent compounds, buildings could be subjected to water clogging during monsoon. Another situation is when the road is widened, requiring the building to be demolished. Also, for better space utilization or such purposes, a building will need to be shifted to a corner of the property. These are typical scenarios where lifting and shifting engineering services are employed. In the former case, the building may be lifted to the intended height, without causing any disturbance to the superstructure. This technology can be applied to any building, irrespective of its age, size, type of construction, etc. Lifting the building is also required when reinforcing the foundation to handle the additional load of new floors added. Shifting the building is also applicable to buildings of all sizes, age and type of construction and is a cost and time saving option as compared to demolishing and reconstructing. But it is an expensive procedure and so, we recommend it only for buildings of massive size or archaeological value. It is expensive because a new foundation has to be constructed at the new location and a track also need to be constructed for the rollers to move the building from its existing location.
