In 2018 Intrepid Engineers was awarded the work for the foundation of WVU Women’s & Children’s Hospital. Intrepid took an innovative approach to provide a 3-sided temporary shoring combination of soldier beam and lagging with rock walls to support the $105.8 million construction project that ended in 2020. The 3-sided shoring consisted of soldier beam and 3” hardwood contact lagging for the top 11 to 14 feet. The piles were casted into rock sockets of 6 to 8 feet in depth. The WVU Women’s & Children’s Hospital is 360,000 sq. ft. and holds 155 beds for pediatric care with state of the art patient rooms for parental stays.
