Drilco Service – Permanent shoring

Whenever site-specific conditions do not allow Drilco, Inc. to recover the shoring material a temporary/permanent shoring system system may be used, with wood lagging in lieu of the steel lagging and the shoring members would be abandoned in place.

Permanent shoring is used in lieu of a conventional retaining wall. Generally, permanent shoring is used due to property line space restrictions. The method is similar to temporary shoring but has a structural shotcrete facing.

Slope stabilization may be required to either temporary mitigate a landslide condition and or to permanently repair the slide. This condition generally requires a soil nail and or tieback anchor to be installed. These anchors are generally placed at twenty to thirty degrees from horizontal, tensioned and faced with shotcrete. They also can be used with the shoring walls when the retaining heights are great.
