Shoring and Dewatering

"Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood."

- Marie Curie

Our expertise in shoring of deep excavation is derived from the necessity to retain the sides of open excavations. GEC own modern equipment geared to driving horizontal or angled anchors and nails, along with tensioning jacks necessary of the construction of deep basements.

GEC's expertise includes the design and execution of:

  • Sheet Pile cofferdams
  • Shoring system and tie-back anchoring
  • Secant Piles
  • Diaphragm walls
  • All grouting works
  • Stability of rock slopes

GEC possesses in-house capabilities to design grout mixes suitable for a variety of ground conditions and multipurpose high pressure grouting operations.

Our engineers are well experienced in the design and implementation of dewatering schemes for open excavations using techniques ranging from open sumps to well point and deep well systems. Where well points systems are deemed to be necessary, GEC can design and install:

  • Single stage well points
  • Multistage well points
  • Deep de-watering wells
