Project Spotlight: 9/19/16 Temporary Shoring with a Unique Twist!

The Geopier SRT® system has been used extensively for stabilizing landslides.  Well, not only can SRT, also known as Plate PileTM, maintain your permanent slopes, but it is also versatile enough to hold back temporary slopes for construction sites.

The Geopier team in Kansas City recently met a need for temporary shoring for a downtown building project.  The Plate Piles were installed in a grid array to maintain the temporary slope between the adjacent basement excavation and the access road.


The SRT approach was a quick, low-vibration, inexpensive option compared to a more traditional earth retention system.  The installation was done in about a day, the vibrations were barely noticeable and the price was less than half of other alternatives.
