Malcolm Drilling was selected
as the shoring contractor for Block 75 of the
City Creek Center in Salt Lake City, UT. Block
75 was the center of the 3 city block Property.
Malcolm’s scope of work included over 90,000sf
of shoring and dewatering around a 2100LF site
perimeter with cut heights of over 75 ft and a
water table 25’ above the bottom of excavation.
The project was completed over 2 phases to allow
for existing structures at the north end of the
site to be tenant occupied before relocating to
new facilities on the south side of the project.
Much of the shoring was done concurrent with the
demolition of the existing ZCMI Shopping Center.
Malcolm’s shoring system directly or indirectly
supported 4 existing structures surrounding the
site and also provided a permanent foundation
for one new structure.
iThis project highlighted the vast breadth of
Malcolm’s capabilities as a shoring contractor
due the unique constraints of the existing structures
as related to the new construction.
Whenever possible, existing foundation walls
from demolished structures were incorporated into
the new shoring system.
