Excavation Shoring

Temporary and/or permanent earth retention systems are important aspects of the construction of many projects.  In some locations, the design of these systems is provided by a design/build contractor.  However, this is not always the case.  A design provided by MKA could help benefit the schedule, procurement, or local market conditions.  MKA is able to provide services from Conceptual Planning to Construction Documents for a wide variety of temporary and/or permanent earth retention systems.

 Earth Retention System design services available at MKA include:

  • Conceptual Design to assist clients in understanding the risks and benefits of a variety of potential earth retention systems (soldier pile and tiebacks, soil nailing, secant pile walls, slurry walls, ground freezing, etc.) to facilitate an informed decision regarding the best approach for the project.
  • Permit process management to assist clients in securing the necessary permits to begin excavation as soon as possible.
  • Detailed design drawings that facilitate competitive bidding and construction of a wide variety of earth retention systems.
