Larsen have, over the last twenty years, developed underpinning techniques which have led to house owners, consulting engineers, insurance companies (including NHBC and Homebond) using them as the contractor of choice in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Our piling teams have undertaken in house and external training on piling and construction techniques including Approved Installer status by Helifix. Our staff have worked on projects dealing with subsidence and cracking to properties, failure of existing foundations, properties suffering from pyrite issues for extensions, single dwellings, apartments and infrastructural projects.
