A shoring system of vertical and horizontal bracing provides extra support to a structure’s load while lower structural levels are being repaired. Construction loads may exceed design loads by an appreciable amount. Therefore, a shoring system must support the imposed loads without excessive stress or deflection.
SHORING SYSTEM APPLIED:
1. To unsafe structures with unequal foundation settlement
2. During removal of adjacent buildings
3. To structures that might become unstable due to structural alterations (remodeling walls)
4. During alterations of adjacent buildings such as underpinning of the adjacent building’s foundation
With over 20 years of experience, our professionals have the knowledge to lift, support, and shore up affected areas of the structure so as to not stress any additions or sections not already properly supported.
