Temporary and permanent shoring systems comprising the cantilever and tie-back anchored shoring walls are typically completed for deep excavations where the excavation walls may not be sloped back due to space limitations. E2K has been retained by several contractor in Alberta, to complete their shoring designs. As part of the confirmation of any shoring design, site inspections independent of the contractor must be completed. This includes verification of assumed soil parameters, groundwater conditions, and designed anchors. Testing of anchors is typically included as part of this service. Monitoring of adjacent buildings is sometimes required during and after the excavation works.
