Site Specific Engineered Systems

Sheeting and Hydraulic Brace ProjectSite Specific Construction Engineering is an extension of NTS’ industry leading Trench Safety Engineering Services.  Site Specific Engineered Systems entail the customization and modification of popular trench safety equipment to meet unique, specific jobsite challenges to promote safe, productive work.  Site Specific Engineered Systems are commonly employed where tabulated data does not cover the conditions, including crossing utilities, poor soil conditions, the presence of adjacent structures, and a combination of tabulated shoring equipment and sloped conditions within the same shored excavation.
