What Is Temporary Shoring?

Shoring is the process of building a structure to support another unsafe structure. Temporary shoring is just what it sounds like: a method for preserving stability for a limited period. Temporary shoring comes into play when soil may shift during excavation or when a building has been damaged by an event like a storm or a car colliding into the building. Because shoring is meant to prevent a building from collapsing, working with a contractor that can balance efficiency with attention to detail is crucial.  

How Does Temporary Shoring Work?

There are several options for temporary shoring, and your contractor will determine the best course of action based on multiple factors. Standard temporary shoring methods for commercial buildings include:

  • Trench boxes consist of two plates separated by spreaders that are welded and braced against the excavation.
  • Solder piles and lagging, involving an H pile frame around the perimeter and lagging sheets to reduce earth pressure.
  • Sheet pile walls, with interlocking panels that wall off the excavation and helical anchors to provide further support.
  • Tie-back anchors that attach to facing elements.
  • Helical soil nails are steel shafts with welded steel plates or helices that screw down into the soil.

Contact our team of experts today by calling (877) 770-7050 to determine which temporary shoring option is best for you.

Benefits of Temporary Shoring

Why opt for temporary shoring? Your commercial building project will enjoy these advantages:

  • Enhanced safety for workers and anyone else on the premises.
