Benefits of Major Projects

Groundforce Shorco (Major Projects) is the market leader in high end hydraulic propping solutions. This division has a large fleet of equipment combined with a first class technical service to support both designers and site personnel.

Groundforce Shorco has a proven track record spanning over 25 years of designing and supplying excavation support systems. However in recent times, the trend towards large, deep and heavily loaded excavations, such as city centre basements, has meant that time and resource has been invested into developing systems that meet the needs of the industry. This has been achieved by close co-operation with customers who have assisted in bringing cutting edge technology to an established product.
