Building foundation I've hit concrete help

Post by Dplumb » Sun Aug 20, 2017 5:23 pm

Re routing a new water pipe. It's a new extension where I've started to dig at the foundation of building but I've only dug about a foot and I've hit concrete. I need advise if I break it up will it cause structure damage to building?

We need a bit more info.

Are you saying you are digging down close to the new extension brickwork? -in which the foundation will be about a foot down.

How are you wanting to route your water pipe? -are you going into the extension with it, or just alongside?
