ASUC is an independent trade association originally formed by a number of leading contractors to promote professional and technical competence within the subsidence industry.

Membership has now been extended to include a comprehensive range of specialist domestic services in: underpinning and subsidence repair techniques, engineered foundation solutions and retrofit basement construction.

Any contractor wishing to join ASUC must first undergo a technical, health & safety, insurance and financial audit and make a commitment to prescribed safety procedures.

ASUC members can offer an insurance warranty on all the works carried out under contract.

Publications, including ASUC's new Basements Guidelines and the Guidelines on Safe and Efficient Underpinning and Mini Piling Operations, are available to download free from the publications page.
