Structural Shotcrete

Structural shotcrete being used in excavation

Structural shotcrete is a method of concrete application and widely used in the mining and tunnelling industry. Structural shotcrete construction is also becoming increasingly used in commercial, industrial and residential projects.

In the shotcreting process, compressed air is used to force concrete through a hose directly onto the required surface. The high pressure used in this process forces the concrete shotcrete to compact and settle.

Structural shotcrete can be used for a wide variety of applications such as:

  • Soil retention

  • Retaining walls

  • Tunnel linings

  • Shafts

  • Bridge repair

  • Sewage treatment rehabilitation

  • Mining

  • Seawalls

  • Underground parkades

  • Domes

  • Steep slope stabilization

  • Landscaping

  • Swimming pools

  • Rockscapes

  • Skateboard parks

  • Shotcrete homes

  • Foundation repair

Both the wet and dry concrete shotcreting process work well, depending on the variables such as structure being built, location and accessibility.
