What is Structural Shoring and Why is it Important to the Selective Demolition Process?

Structural Shoring is the process of supporting a structure during construction or repair. Shoring is used to transfer the critical structural loads onto temporary towers or post shores, while the original structural bearing elements of a building or home are modified or reconfigured. This process involves considerable experience and complex engineering to understand how to safely transfer the weights and loads from one element to another. Wildcat Renovation has extensive experience in completing Structural Shoring projects for our clients. One of our recently completed projects in Naples, FL, used this technique as part of the selective demolition process.

Here are the steps that we take to complete a structural shoring project:

  1. First, we assess the project site and develop a plan of action.
  2. Next, we secure all the necessary permits from the city or county.
  3. Once we have all the required approvals, we begin setting up the equipment needed for the job.
  4. We install steel beams, braces, tower and/or post shoring to support the structure during construction or repair. Then we remove the original bearing elements.
  5. Finally, after the modifications to the bearing elements have been completed, our team removes the structural shoring and ensures we clean up the site and prepare it for the following construction crew.
