I'm a structures guy and my client, who's building a new house, has an approximately 16' long section of the house built 1' away from the property line and the neighbors driveway. He'll need to excavate at least 6' down to place the footing and I'm telling him he'll need to have shoring of some kind to support the soil. He has already asked me to design the shoring, which I have no experience with. I think this would be a soldier pile and lagging job, am I right? Would it be something reasonable to take on after a good amount of studying up on it? Is even this small of a job too risky for a first shoring job? I've located several references mentioned in other threads on this site and the owner is having boring done as well.
