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. University of Iowa School of Music PCI and Ground Improvement Engineering (GIE) provided a design-build solution for the shoring system for the excavation for the new building. The excavation was up to 23-ft below the existing ground surface. 1st Ave Grade Separation PCI and Ground Improvement Engineering (GIE) provided design-build temporary and permanent shoring solutions to maintain railroad, vehicular, and pedestrian traffic through this project. University of Iowa Children's Hospital PCI served as the Prime Contractor for the below-grade work that consisted of excavating a 53-ft-deep hole with dimensions of 300 by 400 ft on a busy campus. Union Pacific Railroad Bridge PCI demolished an existing bridge and constructed a new bridge along the Union Pacific Railroad. PCI and Ground Improvement Engineering (GIE) designed a temporary shoring system along the existing railroad track. IA-58 Under Viking Road As the General Contractor, PCI constructed a 7,800-linear ft-long soldier pile and lagging permanent shoring system with 2 to 3 rows of tiebacks. PCI excavated the underpass and placed the bridge beams. Highway 63 Bridge PCI was the General Contractor for this project which spanned 2 years and included 8 stages of work. The main purpose of this project was to replace an existing railroad underpass with a railroad overpass bridge on US 63.
