When a developer decides to excavate a site at or near the property lines, he or she might need a soil shoring solution in order to support the excavation and protect the adjacent properties. To determine the best solution, the developer usually huddles with key project members such as the general contractor, architect, structural engineer, geotechnical engineer, local jurisdictions, etc. The team will bring up all the shoring options based on the developer’s budget, the site’s adjacent property, and building situation.
During this time, DCI Engineers is shifting face-to-face priorities to virtual platforms via online meetings, email and phone, taking advantage of telecommuting opportunities for staff where appropriate. In many of our regions, our DCI offices are temporarily closed, however we are working from our homes and available by email or phone. Should you need contact information for one of our offices, please find our office numbers listed under our Locations page.
We understand this time creates challenges for individuals and communities, but we know that by working together, we can make it through and come out stronger.
