Is there anyone on board with trench shoring experience? This is the type of work we do but are to buried to meet the schedule. Job is in Camarillo, sandy soil (caves), trench is from 8 to 16 feeet deep, about 8 feet wide. Soils report is available, contractor wants to use steel plates and screw jacks for shoring. TIA Mark
