What is Shoring?

Shoring is used to support and stabilize existing structures, particularly during excavation, demolition, construction, or repair projects. Temporary structures–including props, beams, or walls–prevent collapse and ensure safety of workers and adjacent structures. Shoring systems work by distributing loads and transferring forces to the ground around the structures to maintain the integrity of adjacent buildings and other construction.

Giving experts adequate time and resources to properly execute shoring efforts indicates a commitment to safety and “doing the job right.” Marr B. Olsen is always proud to help ensure everyone on a project comes home healthy and on time.

Common Soil Shoring Applications

Soil shoring is used in a number of common applications. Here are just some of the ways we can use soil shoring to help you complete your construction project:
  • Basement Excavation: support the walls of an excavation for constructing basements, underground parking areas, or other below-the-ground projects.
  • Trenching: prevent trench collapse for utilities like water lines, sewer lines, and electrical conduits.
  • Foundation Repair: support the structure temporarily where foundations need repair or underpinning.
  • Retaining Walls: support temporary or permanent retaining walls.
  • Bridge Construction: ensures the stability of adjacent areas when constructing bridges and bridge structures.
  • Pipeline Installation: protect workers and equipment from tunnel collapse.
  • Hand Dug Pits: ensure safety when constructing digging pits or chambers below ground level.

Common Structure Shoring Applications

Similarly, we use structure shoring in a variety of circumstances to improve worker safety and the integrity of nearby buildings when in close proximity to other projects. Structure shoring is a critical component of emergency rescues and renovation projects. Some of the ways we use structure shoring include:

  • Building Renovation: ensure that existing structures remain stable while work is being completed.
  • Demolition: support portions of a structure that are not being demolished, protecting nearby properties and ensuring safety and efficiency of the demolition.
  • Underpinning: supports a structure temporarily while new foundation elements are installed.
  • Tunneling: prevents cave-ins and maintains the integrity of the excavation.
  • Lowering Foundation: we frequently lift and hold a structure while digging down the lower floors to increase head height and even add additional floors
