Denver International Airport Slope Excavation

CLIENT Denver International Airport

Location Denver, CO

Shannon & Wilson provided geotechnical engineering services for a slope excavation project necessary for the construction of a new hotel and four bridges.

Based on our recommendations, our client was able to construct the excavations utilizing slopes, despite the congested footprint of the site.  The use of temporary excavation slopes instead of a shored excavation saved a significant amount of money for the project and our client.

Shannon & Wilson also developed and implemented recommendations to monitor the stability of excavation slopes at the site.
