Shoring is the process of installing temporary supports. In new construction, horizontal or vertical supports (or shores) made of either timber or steel can be placed to support walls, usually at a 60˚–70˚ angle. They are also used during renovations to hold up something unstable or weak.
Archeologists use shores during excavations to prevent collapse and to expedite the dig process.
Stahl will provide shoring to support the new construction of the 55,000-square-foot Ankeny Library.
