HCM was contracted to provide the design and installation of shoring system for a 110 unit building consisting of town homes, studios and condos. This development was located at 1037 Second Avenue N. W. Calgary, Alberta. HCM, in conjunction with RWH Engineering, designed, supplied and installed a tied-back continuous caisson wall.

The shoring was designed for a maximum excavation depth of 10 meters below grade for a total of approximately 18,900 square feet of shoring area. The soil conditions consisted of gravels with the presence of ground water, making the continuous caisson wall the superior solution due to the zero ground loss and minimal water infiltration advantages.

This project had strict timeline requirements and called for the shoring to be completed in 28 days. In order to finish the project on time, HCM had to use double shifts and injection anchors to double the anchor production. The steps taken by HCM were successful and the project was finished within the given deadline.
