Becker Engineering, PC designed wall and column formwork, slab formwork (shoring), and slab re-shoring to allow for safe placement of concrete during construction.  Becker Engineering, PC also […]

Vertical Netting Anchor Testing

Becker Engineering, PC prepared vertical netting drawings for an existing 40-story building in Manhattan, NY.  The 60” high vertical netting will enclose the building perimeter while the façade is removed and replaced.  The building structure consists of concrete encased steel columns.  BEPC designed and tested anchors that would be installed into the concrete encasement in […]

Formwork and Safety Netting Installation

  Construction is ongoing for a new cast-in-place concrete building in Brooklyn, NY.  Becker Engineering, PC provided construction engineering designs for the proposed construction (concrete column and wall formwork, slab reshoring, vertical netting/guardrails, and horizontal netting).  Slab formwork drawings were provided by the shoring system manufacturer for this project.

Column Temporary Shoring

Becker Engineering, PC designed temporary shoring of an existing steel column in Brooklyn, NY.  The existing footing for the 10-story column was proposed to be removed and replaced.  BEPC designed shoring beams and a jacking procedure to support the existing column while the footing was removed and replaced.  The jacking procedure allowed the shoring beams […]

Support of Excavation

Becker Engineering, PC designed the support of excavation system for a new multi-story building in Queens, NY.  The excavation depth ranged between 20-30 feet.  Soldier piles braced with hollow-bar grouted tiebacks were installed in lieu of steel rakers.  Tieback braced tangent piles were used adjacent to a (1) story building to increase rigidity and prevent […]
