SHORING AND EARTH RETENTION SYSTEMS
We have experience installing many types of earth retention systems, both temporary and permanent. These systems are commonly used to protect and support an adjacent structure from collapsing while carrying out deep foundation and excavation work. Well-executed shoring is essential in downtown Toronto, where houses are built in close proximity to one another.
These systems come in range of size and complexity. During deep excavations, we use temporary sheet piled walls, solider piles and wood lagging, and large monolithic concrete walls to retain the earth in place as we work. We also install permanent earth retention systems to stabilize soil long term. These permanent systems are commonly installed where the soil beneath where the house sits is subject to erosion. We have the expertise and the specialized compact equipment needed to carry out most temporary or permanent residential shoring projects in tight access spaces.
