Senior Project Director 
Englekirk, a Member of WSP

Abstract: This presentation discusses: how building sites are planned in terms of governing agencies, planning, zoning and design; when and where earth shoring is required; how it affects a building’s architecture; understanding the differences in application; cost for temporary and permanent shoring; knowing when to use soil nails versus tie backs to stabilize a slope; and how to coordinate between all design trades for seamless execution to ultimately save cost on projects.
