Shoring Soldier Pile Work
Shoring soldier pile work involves a construction technique used to provide temporary support and stabilization to excavations, typically in the construction of deep foundations, basements, or retaining walls. Soldier piles, which are vertical structural elements, are installed at regular intervals along the perimeter of the excavation. These piles are usually made of steel or concrete and are driven or drilled into the ground. The purpose of soldier piles is to prevent soil or rock from collapsing into the excavation and to ensure the safety of the construction site.
The soldier piles are often connected by horizontal support elements called lagging, which provides additional structural support and helps retain the soil between the piles. In some cases, tiebacks or anchors may be used to further stabilize the soldier pile and lagging system.
