A contractor is asking me for a shoring drawing for installation of a steel lintel. The masonry opening is 8' with 8'' bearing on each side. The installation is happening only from the inside (it's in an apartment building). Is there a handbook for bracing and shoring techniques? How can I brace the opening without getting in the way of the install? I've read some of the other posts in this forum and it seems like through bolting two C channels to the CMU above the opening is a good technique (repairing the holes afterwards) but in this case its seems like getting the channel on the outside would be difficult if not impossible. Thanks for any help or references you can provide.
