We’ve worked closely with the City of Ottawa on a number of recent projects, such as the West End pumping stations, Alta Vista culvert replacement, and the John Asselford Weir removal.
Shoring is the process of building temporary walls or other barriers to prevent erosion, water damage, or other damage to property. It can also refer to a more permanent structure built on top of the ground to support a building.
The term applies to both temporary and permanent structures. Shoring can be used in a number of situations, including construction sites, road maintenance, and flooding control. While shoring can be used for many purposes, it is most commonly associated with building repairs or maintenance projects.
It can be used to prevent damage to the foundation of a structure from heavy snowfall or from flooding or soil erosion caused by rainfall. In these situations, shoring is typically installed around the perimeter of the property as well as at key points where damage may occur.
Temporary shoring may also be necessary when rebuilding after an earthquake or other natural disaster. Shoring can also be used in construction projects involving heavy equipment.
For example, it can be used to support derricks when lifting materials or equipment onto a site. It can also be used to prevent damage to the foundation of a building when heavy loads are being transported into a confined space such as a truck bed.
Finally, shoring is also often used in road maintenance projects as a way of stopping soil erosion on steep hillsides or when lifting heavy equipment over roads that have been damaged by winter storms.
