Groundforce Shorco upgrades design tool

YourSolution, Groundforce Shorco’s interactive design tool, upgrades to 1.2.

Excavation support specialist Groundforce Shorco has added a groundwater management option to YourSolution, its interactive design tool for temporary works.

YourSolution v1.2 has been launched to help customers include information where groundwater is present within an excavation, specifically for manhole braces and walers for excavations up to two levels of frame.

The upgrade allows customers to input a depth of groundwater as a value of Metres Below Ground Level (mBGL). It caters for groundwater up to 1m above formation level, depending on the excavation depth, and is split between 0.5m and 1.0m design packs.

Developed by Groundforce’s technical, sales and marketing teams, the user-friendly programme provides customers with a simple step-by-step process to obtain fully documented temporary works designs in line with the requirements of BS5975. Access is available 24/7 on mobile devices and desktops directly from the Groundforce website, making it ideal for out-of-hours emergency works.

Groundforce marketing director Anil Govind said: “The new development of YourSolution comes from customer feedback and demonstrates the willingness to invest and improve our services and systems for our customers.”
