When adjoining buildings or underground infrastructure require protection during construction and demolition projects, contractors, design professionals, and facility owners call on Brierley Associates. We design a wide array of support of excavation systems such as cutter soil mixing (CSM) and diaphragm (slurry) walls, secant piles, soil nails steel or timber sheeting systems, jet grouting, and initial and permanent ground support for tunnels and shafts.

If you have special application needs like hand-dug piers, slant drilled piles, needle beams, micro piles, jet grout treatment, and even trestles to carry utilities and support crawling cranes, Brierley’s construction design engineers have the knowledge to develop constructable designs for your project.
