We’re proud to be certified as a Small, Minority and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (SBE & MWBE)



Our founder, Wyatt Allen, started out in the business as a laborer for a nationwide drilling company. He soon became a drill rig helper and was promoted to drill rig operator within a couple of months. His ambition led him to start his own foundation drilling and shoring business with his wife, “Dottie” Allen as his partner. Over the last 35 years, Western Foundations & Shoring has performed several thousand drilling and shoring projects with satisfied clients. Our knowledge in designing and building temporary and permanent shoring systems is based on years of experience providing drilling and shoring services in San Diego, CA. Over the years, our San Diego-based foundation company has built and developed special tools and custom equipment right in our shop to help facilitate our clients’ special project needs.

Today, we continue to be a family-owned and operated business of San Diego foundation contractors, with a team that is eager to take on any challenge holding to their commitment that every custom construction project is important, no matter how big or small. Our fleet has continued to grow and covers a wide variety of shoring equipment from large track-mounted drill rigs down to limited access drill rigs that can fit through a 42-inch wide opening.
