Shoring Design Services

Ground Support provides complete design services for the following types of earth retention and foundation systems:

We prepare complete design packages, construction drawing sets and specifications. We can adapt these systems to support complex surface and subsurface loadings, and to accommodate complex wall geometries. We work with owners and their representatives to provide owner designs and prebid consultation, and we work with contractors to provide preliminary designs for cost-estimating, as well as design-build and value-engineering design services. Furthermore, during construction, we provide on-going design support and consultation.

Ground Support works in the public agency civil infrastructure industry (e.g., highways), the public utility arena (e.g., transmission towers), and the commercial building construction industry (e.g. parking garages). We design both temporary shoring and permanent structural walls (e.g. shotcrete or cast-in-place), and work with owner’s structural engineers, when required, to integrate the temporary shoring into the permanent structural support system. Ground Support also provides complete design solutions for major landslide repair and residential and commercial slope remediation.
