Temporary Shotcrete Shoring & Soil Stabilization – New Braunfels, Texas
November 2013 – 6,000 sf of shotcrete shoring along Seguin Ave in Comal County as General Contractor widens road for Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
Curtis Concrete Pumping (CCP) provides temporary shotcrete shoring placement as a major throughway widens in New Braunfels, Texas. Excavated walls required temporary soil stabilization during construction for both worker safety and to prevent failure during storm events. Shotcrete preparation work by the General Contractor included the insertion of nails into the shoring surface. Welded wire mesh was then tied to the pins, serving as reinforcement for the shotcrete application.
At approximately 20 feet tall and 300 feet long, CCP and the general contractor utilized Skyjack lifts to complete the placement of shotcrete for the project in two days. Ready mix concrete trucks were spaced at 45 minutes apart, keeping the time from batch to placement well within the required 1.5 hour time limit. The concrete material itself was a 4,000, psi 7.5 sack with 3/8 aggregate. Shotcrete shoring was successfully completed with no delays, and just before the area’s wettest month in recorded history.
