To ensure that the excavation does not damage existing structures or adjoining properties, civil engineers make sure that shoring is necessary. Our civil engineers figure out where the property line is by drawing a 1:1 projection on top of the footings or grade. Temporary shoring can be removed after its use or remain in place without being counted as a permanent feature. A wide flange beam or concrete piles with lagging can be used to support the excavation in a cantilevered or braced position. The excavation depth, soil condition, and available space, as well as the construction aims, dictate the method to be employed. Excavation projects more than 5 feet deep in California require shoring plans. Shoring systems that are safe and practical and match our client’s objectives have been developed by the highest level of engineering. To provide clients with an engineered solution for temporary soil retaining walls and trench shoring, we have a thorough understanding of all shoring methods and manufacturers in the industry.
