Proudly serving the Lower Mainland since 1972.
Southwest Contracting makes use of many different shoring methods including the drilling of IBO anchors in caving ground, drilled vertical piles (so anchors can span utilities), and specialty drilling and grouting techniques to maintain the integrity of an excavation. Our shoring method of choice for many projects in Vancouver is shotcrete shoring due to the dominance of native glacial till throughout the region. It is usually 50% more economical than shoring with soldier piles and lagging. Also, jet grouting, soil mixing or secant walls in combination with tieback anchors have been introduced to shore water-bearing ground.

The company specializes in shotcrete and other shoring methods, special grouting techniques, jet grouting, excavation, underground utility installation, road building, hydraulic drilling for tieback, seismic anchors and micropiles, as well as environmental civil works.
