Shoring

Shoring

Shoring solutions are most commonly installed to prevent ground collapse and ensure worker safety on a site. At Sonic Geo, we are committed to safety by ensuring our shoring solutions adhere to the Code of Practice set down by Safe Work Australia.

Shoring can be either a temporary or permanent solution to retain or support buildings, trenches, various structures and to stabilise ground conditions. Shoring is often used when excavating a building site. Commonly used methods include,

Vertical Timber Shoring
A shoring method using vertical soldiers, with horizontal walers between them. Vertical timbers are inserted behind the walers and back-filled with stable material.

Horizontal Timber Shoring
A shoring method using vertical soldiers, with horizontal timbers located inside the soldier channels and back-filled with stable material.

Horizontal Bondek Shoring
A shoring method using vertical soldiers, with horizontal bondek located inside the soldier channels and back-filled with stable material.

Contiguous Pier Wall
A wall made by forming a continuous line of concrete piers; one next to the other.

Shotcrete Shoring
This shoring method uses steel soldiers or concrete piers, with reinforcing mesh hung between the vertical members. Cement is then sprayed (shotcreting) onto the mesh, producing a cement wall between each pier.

Sonic Geo has been engaged to deliver hundreds of shoring solutions for a wide variety of infrastructure and construction projects.
