What is Excavation and Lateral Support (ELS) System?
The photo above shows part of the ELS works.
The lateral support system could provide support to the soil adjacent to the excavated area, so that the underground facilities such as pile caps and basement can be constructed within the excavated area. The construction of lateral support system mainly includes:-
- Construction of king post & installation of sheet piles
- Installation of waling
- Grouting to prevent groundwater ingress if necessary
The ELS system we are setting up will be used for constructing the underground balancing tank with 12 meters depth. The whole ELS system requires about 9 months to a year for completion.
The construction of the lateral support system for balancing tank are in progress. The photo above shows the preparation works for the welding of sheet piles.
