Temporary Excavation Support Systems
Presented By: John J. Peirce III, PE, Partner & VP, Peirce Engineering, Inc.
Temporary excavation support systems are keystone design elements frequently relegated to last minute pre-construction consideration status. Contractors are typically responsible for determining the requirements for an excavation support system, designing the selected system, and then constructing the system " all under performance-based specifications. During this presentation, we will review the more common excavation support systems and discuss their advantages and disadvantages, while briefly discussing construction methods, equipment, and newly implemented, excavation support requirements from the City of Philadelphia Dept. of L & I. Attendees should come away with a broader understanding of temporary excavation support systems and their impact on a project’s design and construction costs and phases.
