ICON finds elevator solution at impossible NJ work site.

Nordic Contracting Co., Inc., of Ledgewood, NJ, was hired to install a new 3Bay concrete elevator shaft for the Englewood Hospital, Englewood, NJ. However, inadequate site access, coupled with hard clay soil conditions, presented a major obstacle to Nordic's crew.

The Icon Group, a leading underground engineering and distribution company, based in East Brunswick, NJ, designed a tight sheeting 2 Bay slide rail system, 35' long x 20.5' wide x 16"-24' deep, for the project. Icon's Head Field Technician, Robert Langenbach, was there to provide technical assistance. Access from one side made excavating difficult for the contractor. However, using a mini excavator inside the pit to break up hard clay and rock was a big help. Icon's slide rail system allowed the contractor's crew to overcome the limited access and overhead clearance problems in an easy and effective way.

Icon's state-of-the-art slide rail system allows a small crew to sheet a tough job, like the 3bay concrete elevator shaft, quickly with minimal training and could save time and money off conventional sheeting. While reducing restoration costs, the Slide Rail system eliminates the need for walers, provides more working room and makes digging easier. The modular design assures flexibility and maximum use of system on all jobs.
