Soil Nails

Soil nailing is a type of earth support that involves a series of drilled piles with a shotcrete facing.

The process begins by excavating down a 5-ft cut.   Drilled piles are then laterally drilled into the soils as “soil nails”.  Soil Nails are typically constructed to provide a bond for the full length of the nail.

Once the row of soil nails are drilled, a shotcrete facing is applied to the soils.   Shortly thereafter, the next 5-ft cut is excavated and the process continues down to the bottom of the excavation.
