Western Foundations & Shoring, Inc. was contracted by Kitchell Contractors to design and construct a temporary shoring system to support the basement excavation of the new Scripps Mercy MD Anderson Cancer Center for Scripps Heath in San Diego, California.
The design-build system for this new building consisted of 8,300 square feet of soldier piles, timber lagging, tiebacks, and pipe braces. Our services included detailed coordination with the earthwork subcontractor to design a haul ramp capable of supporting heavy haul trucks. We designed this temporary shoring system to accommodate the concrete subcontractor’s service crane and concrete pump surcharge loads. One major challenge for this project was coordination with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for installation of tieback anchors within 5 feet of a high-pressure gas line. We worked alongside SDG&E personnel to prepare a detailed installation statement, including pot holing utility prior to drilling and scheduling gas stand-by personnel. As a result, our tieback anchor installation was performed perfectly without delay to the project schedule.
