Lift shear wall foundation above original foundation

Lift shear wall foundation above original foundation

Lift shear wall foundation above original foundation

Can we construct shear wall for lift above orginal foundation as the original footing is more deeper than required lift pit. So the mat footing for shear wall raises above the original building foundation. I plan to attach the shear wall into orginal building column but will have different footing.

RE: Lift shear wall foundation above original foundation

I'm not sure that i fully understand the thread. Let me explain, there is basement storey and lift access is not planned to the basement..

So, you want to keep the level of raft for lift shaft above the building foundation ..Is this true ??

If this is the thread ,I will strongly advise to pull down the lift shaft to the foundation level and combine the lift raft with foundation ..

Pls post a sketch , some excerpts of the proposed dwgss to get more valuable responds..

RE: Lift shear wall foundation above original foundation

You want to pour new footings on top of existing? Any sketches would help
