Deep excavation shoring projects are necessary to support areas prone to collapse during the construction process.
Deep Excavation Shoring Project Description:
Duke Cancer Center is a state-of-the-art medical facility constructed in the heart of the Duke Hospital Campus. Excavation for the basement required shoring due to tight site constraints working around an existing facility, highly trafficked patient drop off, an adjacent ongoing construction project and numerous below grade utilities.
Shotcrete Face Solutions
Subsurface designed and constructed a mixture of anchored soldier pile walls and soil nail walls to allow for the deep excavation in a highly congested hospital campus. We also used our driven soil nail system where feasible to reduce the overall shoring cost and duration.
- 10 to 30 feet deep 6,000 sf of temporary soil nail wall
- 9,000 sf of temporary cantilevered and anchored soldier pile wall

What is Shotcrete?
Shotcrete is a way to apply concrete to a vertical surface at a high velocity. In that way, the high velocity adheres the shotcrete to most surfaces. That makes it the perfect application for oddly shaped surfaces. Shotcrete does not require a cast or mold for placement. And that’s what makes it different from concrete. And more cost effective.
