Temporary Shoring Design for High-Rise Building in Downtown Los Angeles.


“The construction of a new 52-story condominium hi-rise at 1027 Wilshire Blvd & St. Paul Avenue is just one example of the renewed growth and development we are experiencing in downtown Los Angeles.  Our site was tight, and an engineering colleague recommended that we hire Earth Support Systems to design the shoring system. We had some challenges with the project early on, and I learned quickly that ESS are experts at shoring design.  It turned out that we weren’t able to get underground tie-back easements from the neighboring building, so ESS had to design a bracing system with diagonal struts and walers. Their design was put together very well and very fast. They were able to accommodate everything we asked for and were very efficient throughout the project. We definitely plan to use them again.”
