Shoring and Bracing
Shoring and bracing is utilized to support a building, structure, or trench to decrease the danger of collapse during demolition or other alterations to the structure. Interior Specialists, Inc., doing business as ISI Demolition (ISI), is capable of vertical, angled, or horizontal shoring when necessary. Our specialized crews utilize shoring techniques when adjacent supporting structures are being demolished, when new openings are to be made or enlarged, when elevated slabs are to be removed, and more. ISI’s highly experienced shoring crew can also complete structural welded shoring and provide structural engineering shoring consultations for your upcoming project.
ISI offers shoring and bracing services on projects throughout the Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Delaware area. From our Florida location, we offer shoring and bracing services to clients throughout central Florida, including the Orlando metropolitan area.
Project: Shoring and Bracing at the U.S. Naval Academy
The Chauvenet Hall project at the United States Naval Academy was one of ISI’s most challenging projects to date, in terms of scope, timing, and sheer size. The project involved gutting the entire hall for refitting and renovation. Extensive coordination and planning were required, including the use of shoring and Brokk robotics. The final result was of such high quality that we were given a letter of commendation from The Whiting‐Turner Contracting Company.
Project: Shoring and Bracing at the Springfield Town Center
The selective demolition of the Springfield Town Center included gutting the existing 900,000 square feet of architectural retail space back to structural elements to remain. To accomplish this, ISI had to install vertical load shoring, column bracing, and lateral load foundation wall shoring in order to perform the major structural modifications as shown on the contract documents.
