Nowadays, numerous underpinning methods are available to provide safe, fast and practical solutions to nearly any geotechnical problem related to the foundations of a structure. This paper discusses these techniques with an emphasis on grouting and micropiling underpinning systems. Furthermore, some practical case studies such as the current Boston Central Artery Project (Big Dig), where these techniques were adopted, are presented showing the main stages of their construction execution and their main advantages and disadvantages.
