Temporary or permanent lateral support works are constructed, to ensure stability for vertical or inclined excavation shafts in order to receive loads deriving from earth pressure effects and hydrostatic pressure. This also ensures minimization of adjacent or nearby construction  settlements.

The following methods are used to apply to lateral support:

  • Temporary prestressed anchors
  • Permanent prestressed anchors
  • Steel piles with anchors (Berlinoise method)
  • Lateral Support with struts
  • Cast in situ bored piles with anchors
  • Cast in situ diaphragm walls with anchors
  • Secant piles with anchors
  • Sheet piles
  • Shotcrete
  • Jet Grouting
  • Soil Nailing
  • Micropiles
