    What Is Temporary Shoring?

    Temporary shoring is a critical construction method used to reinforce structures during maintenance or repair work. It involves the use of temporary structures like beams, columns, and braces to ensure worker safety and stability while completing the job.

    Temporary shoring refers to the process of supporting structures, excavations, or slopes during construction projects. The purpose is to prevent collapse, stabilize unstable soil layers and ensure safety for workers and equipment. There are several types of methods including soldier beams and lagging, sheet piling, braced excavation, and soil nailing.

    Temporary shoring is crucial in construction projects for ensuring safety and minimizing risks of accidents. Innovative solutions like GeoStabilization’s launched soil nails can revolutionize needs by reducing environmental impact while increasing productivity.

    It is essential in construction projects as it minimizes risks associated with excavation work such as cave-ins or slope failures which could lead to injuries or even fatalities. By using innovative solutions like launched soil nails for temporary retaining walls, contractors can save both time and money while ensuring a safe environment and increased productivity on their job sites.

    Benefits of Launched Soil Nails

    With a faster and less expensive installation process than traditional methods, soil nails can accept load seconds after installation and work in tandem with primary excavation. Plus, perforated launched nails can be used for groundwater concerns, offering myriad launched horizontal drains that contribute to the speed and safety of the excavation.

    Ideal for Congested Sites

    Limited access solutions are necessary for congested sites, and GeoStabilization’s Launched Soil Nails provide just that. This approach requires minimal disruption to traffic and pedestrians, making it suitable for urban environments. The use of easily mobilized equipment means a quicker start-up time, resulting in shoring completion being faster and less expensive than traditional methods. Choose GeoStabilization for temporary shoring that is not only safe but also cost-effective with a faster installation process even in active traffic areas.

    Faster and Less Expensive than Traditional Methods

    Launched Soil Nails reduced labor costs, shorter installation times, and less equipment required. This approach can be 30% lower in cost than traditional methods while delivering faster results. Launched Soil Nails also accept load seconds after installation, allowing contractors to work in tandem within primary excavations resulting in little or no delay for the shoring’s completion.

    Accept Load Seconds after Installation

    Launched Soil Nails offer contractors the ability for quick stabilization of slopes or excavation walls, allowing for immediate start of construction activities upon completion. With acceptance of load seconds after installation, project completion times can be significantly reduced. This innovative approach can work in tandem with primary excavation and dewatering can contribute further to the speed and safety of the process.

    Can Work in Tandem with Primary Excavation

    GeoStabilization’s launched soil nails efficiently support the primary excavation process, allowing for concurrent shoring and excavation work. This maximizes available workspace during construction and speeds up the overall project timeline.

    Perforated Launched Nails for Groundwater Concerns

    Perforated launched nails are an effective solution for sites where groundwater buildup is a concern. By reducing pore pressure, seepage forces, and hydraulic uplift pressures, these nails prevent instability of the soil mass due to excess water content. The use of perforated launched nails increases the stability of soil mass while decreasing the water content.

    • Prevents groundwater buildup behind the shoring system
    • Reduction in pore pressure, seepage forces, and hydraulic uplift pressures
    • Increases stability of soil mass through reduction in water content

    Dewatering Contributes to Speed and Safety

    Dewatering is a crucial step and can significantly contribute to the speed and safety of an excavation. By removing water from the site, several benefits can be achieved, including reducing trench box size requirements, improving visibility due to reduced water accumulation on-site, and simplifying removal of excavated material from sites. These advantages ultimately lead to a faster installation process with lower project costs for contractors.

    • Minimizes trench box size requirements
    • Improves visibility due to reduced water accumulation on site.
    • Simplifies removal of excavated material from sites.

    Safe Installation in Active Traffic Areas

    Installing temporary shoring in active traffic areas can pose significant risks and challenges. It is crucial to ensure the safety of workers, motorists, and pedestrians during the installation process. GeoStabilization's Launched Soil Nails offer a safe installation solution by reducing excavation requirements and minimizing disruption to existing infrastructure.

    GeoStabilization's Launched Soil Nails provide a stable foundation while ensuring minimal disturbance to surrounding structures or ongoing operations. By using specialized drilling equipment, soil nails are inserted into soil layers at specific angles and depths, providing additional reinforcement against potential failures.

    Minimizing disruption to traffic during installation is essential in maintaining project timelines and avoiding costly delays. GeoStabilization’s expertise allows for fast mobilization without compromising on safety or quality assurance measures.

    Cost-Effective Solution

    When comparing traditional shoring methods to GeoStabilization's Launched Soil Nails, the cost-effectiveness of the latter becomes apparent. The increased durability and reduced maintenance needs of GeoStabilization's solution leads to long-term cost savings for contractors. Additionally, case studies have showcased the significant cost-effectiveness of using Launched Soil Nails for temporary shoring projects.

    By choosing GeoStabilization's solution, contractors can save both time and money in their projects. The product’s superior durability and low-maintenance design result in fewer necessary repairs or replacements down the line. With proven success through various case studies, it’s clear that GeoStabilization's Launched Soil Nails offer a highly effective yet affordable alternative to traditional shoring methods.
