Commercial Permanent Shoring
Commercial construction in North and South Carolina means contending with our unique soil makeup during excavation. To keep projects running safely and smoothly, many construction companies turn to temporary shoring while the building is being constructed. However, permanent shoring is a beneficial alternative to consider.
What Is Permanent Shoring?
“Shoring” is the term for creating structures to preserve the stability of another structure. Shoring during construction stops soil from moving during excavation, allowing nearby buildings and the building being constructed to maintain their structural integrity. Shoring is also preferred when an existing building sustains damage that threatens its stability.
Unlike temporary shoring, permanent shoring involves the placement of structures that will remain a part of the property even after the construction or repairs are complete.
How Does Permanent Shoring Work?
Two main methods can be applied to shoring. The appropriate choice depends on various factors, and a professional contractor will explain which option is best for your commercial building.
- Soil nails are used to reinforce rocky areas or large quantities of soil at a budget-friendly price point.
- Helical tieback anchors, installed with a hydraulic drill and featuring plate anchors.
Benefits of Permanent Shoring
What makes permanent shoring a smart decision during any project that requires excavation? The benefits include:
- Increased worker safety during the project.
- Preservation of stability in nearby buildings.
- Faster project completion.
- Continued resistance against soil movement even after construction or repair.
