Excavation shoring is typically required to retain soils adjacent to deep excavations to either facilitate new construction or other earth retention applications and to provide a safe work environment for construction crews. Horizon Engineering has significant experience in the design and construction field review of the following types of shoring systems which are the most common in the Lower Mainland:

  • Tie-back soil anchors with shotcrete panels (including underpinning, lift-off test, proof and performance testing)
  • Lock Block retaining walls
  • Shallow soil mixing (SSM) and Cutter Soil Mixing (CSM)
  • Jet grouting
  • CIP Caissons
  • Dewatering
