What is propping, jacking and shoring?

Propping, excavation shoring and jacking equipment is used extensively in construction to ensure that work can be done safely and efficiently. Using our fleet of props, hydraulic jacks and shoring equipment, Mabey engineers design schemes to hold up the sides of buildings (facade retention), raise bridges off their bearings (bridge lifting), or temporarily support buildings and infrastructure as they are built (propping, needling and shoring).

Our comprehensive monitoring equipment gives engineers and customers the real-time data they need to reduce risks. Our approach is to reduce the amount of hire equipment needed by designing more smartly and provide monitoring to further improve productivity. We are the first temporary works specialist to be BIM level 2 accredited and our monitoring service is un-paralleled in its application to civil engineering and construction challenges.

Benefits to using Mabey:

  • Peace of mind with our extensive engineering support network
  • Efficiency assured with our comprehensive range of propping and jacking equipment for projects ranging from light propping to heavy duty
  • Comprehensive range of structural and environmental monitoring equipment available
  • Expertise available with an on request full scheme design service
  • BIM Level 2 accredited

“We approached Mabey because of their expertise in delivering bespoke, smart engineering solutions in a short time-frame. As a long-term partner of ours, the team clearly understood our unique engineering requirements and the importance of developing a system that will bring significant benefits when adopted and applied to larger projects in the future. The successful trial over the River Artro will change the way we approach and programme these repairs.”

Steve Richardson, Contracts Manager, Rail, Alun Griffiths Contractors Ltd.

“The Mersey Gateway Project signifies a major step forward in the regeneration of the North West. Mabey’s role in this project helped us overcome a number of challenges, such as determining access arrangements and the specific method we would use to install the pre-cast concrete beams and avoid over-stressing the temporary propping system.”

Jim Rice, Senior Operations Manager, Merseylink.
