Shafts are vertical openings commonly constructed at sending and/or receiving ends of new tunnel or pipeline construction. They enable the supply of equipment, personnel, material, and support systems for tunneling activities. Drill Tech has significant experience in excavating and supporting shafts to depths over 1,000’ in numerous ground types, including “gassy” shafts. Support options for shafts vary from CSM and secant wall support through overburden to rock anchors, steel sets, and shotcrete and concrete in rock. in dewatered ground conditions.
