Shore enough

The construction crew are busy these days building many strong walls and floors inside the foundations of the Hazelnut Inn suites. These walls and floors are called shoring and are temporary. The 2'“ x 6” walls are only four feet apart and the 2” x 10” joists are 12” on center with 3/4” thick plywood on top. They are designed to hold up the suspended concrete slabs as we cast them and will stay in place for 28 days until the concrete has cured enough to support itself. There is no such thing as too strong in this kind of construction, for not strong enough would be catastrophic.
