Shoring. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Likewise, people ask, where are shoring needed?
Legal Requirements As with any construction project, trench shoring is subject to a number of requirements which are mandated by law. For example, any trench which is over 5ft in depth is required to have shoring, to ensure the safety of those working within.
How is shoring done?
For our purposes, shoring is the process of supporting the underground walls of a building or trench with props (shores) when we're digging so that the soil doesn't cave in during the process of creating the foundation. Once the digging is complete, the shore is lowered into the ground.
