The Support of excavation (SOE) structures as containment and remediation
The purpose of support of excavation (SOE) structures is to provide temporary support from earth and water forces, to permit the safe excavation and construction of a permanent geostructure. As site and soil conditions vary, so does the systems cost and feasibility.
Steel piles are an isotropic material; they are readily available and made from 100% recycled content. In addition, there is no cure time for loading, and they are easy to extract. These are just some of the reasons why steel SOE structures are more viable than insitu/cast-in-place systems.
When exploring SOE systems for your next project, JDF offers a variety of steel geostructural systems and solutions.
