Shoring & Bracing

A Sample of Successful Projects Shoring & Bracing

Shoring is often required to prevent movement of soil, underground utilities, roadways, and foundations during below-grade construction activities.  Our capabilities include sheet piles, soldier piles and lagging, slope stabilization, and more. 
PCI and its design partners can provide cost-effective geotechnical structures to support any temporary and permanent deep excavations.
