Underpinning & Shoring in Coogee

Eastside Piling is a family owned business that has over 30 years experience. We pride ourselves on our work ethic that is easily achieved when everyone is family. We proudly service the Eastern Suburbs, however our jobs have taken us all over Sydney. All of the employees at Eastside Piling have extensive knowledge and experience to ensure each job is completed with professionalism, quality and safety.

Shoring is a commonly used term in the construction industry that is a process to support a structure that is prone to collapse. So, be it a wall of an old building prone to collapse or an excavation site, where the walls are susceptible to fall at any time or new construction, where the concrete is yet to dry completely, you need to support such structures. So, for stabilizing any structure be it temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent structures, you need shoring. Shoring is used during the first stage of construction viz excavation where there is a risk of a wall collapse

Shoring is essential for the following purposes:

  • Better safety during construction
  • Reduced risk of wall/trench collapses thereby enabling faster work
  • Lower costs and peace of mind

Eastside piling is one of the most trusted shoring company in Coogee for performing shoring operations of all kinds. Over the years of our operations, we have developed expertise in the field of shoring and have been able to carry out complex and difficult to perform shoring operations all over Coogee. At Eastside piling, once we undertake a shoring task, we assign the task to our structural experts who thoroughly analyze every aspect of the site. They examine the load of the structure, the type of soil, the water content in the soil, and space availability to come up with the right kind of shoring to be installed for the site.

We are experts to create shoring using stainless steel, iron, aluminum, and a variety of other strong materials. Various types of shoring tasks that our structural experts can provide to include:

  • H/I Beam Shoring or Soldier pile – These are horizontal or vertical prefabricated steel structures that support walls (H – Beams) or floors (V – Beam). These types of shoring are generally used for small excavation work to support.
  • Secant Pile Shoring – For deep excavations and where there is not much space for carrying out open excavations, our experts use secant pile shoring in which a combination of two intersecting piles are constructed.
  • Contiguous pile shoring – These are used for soil structures where there is no water. In this type of shoring, we install piles almost touching each other to support a structure. Since adjacent piles touch each other like tangents, these are also called tangent shoring.
  • Sheet shoring – These are generally used for creating basements where there is a possibility of coming across the water.
  • Diaphragm Walls- For extremely deep excavations, to support large weights, depending on the load to be resisted, a reinforced concrete wall called a diaphragm wall is created.

The most common methods to carry out shoring operations are hydraulic or pneumatic depending on the load to be resisted, the soil type, and the type of shoring to be installed.

At Eastside piling, we give utmost importance to the safety of the operations. We follow all the guidelines prescribed by statutory authorities and ensure that all the piles and shoring done by our company are of the highest standards. All our employees are trained to carry out safe and efficient, precision-driven excavation work.

Fernando Barros

I have been the principle of this structural engineering firm for over 20 years now. Many of our design projects have included underpinning, piering and shoring works. Throughout the years we have encountered Robert and the boys from Eastside Piling carrying out these works on many of these projects. I have always found them to be competent and responsible. I would have no hesitation (and often do) recommending Eastside Piling for the above works.

I have employed the services of Eastside Piling on several of our building projects. I have found them to be competent in piering, shoring, dewatering and all other works associated with their trade. They pre-plan well in advance and have adequate equipment to carry out the activity at hand. They work in a safe manner and fully respect the dangers that come with this type of work. I personally highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them in the near future.
