A New Link

Shore and Pour are pleased to be a member of the Shoring Technology Interest Group (STIG) under the auspices of the Construction Plant-Hire Association (CPA). The group consists of shoring equipment suppliers who meet on a regular basis to discuss shoring issues and to produce guidance for users of their equipment. This ranges from the comprehensive Shoring Manual and the newer Management of Shoring (still in development) to technical information notes (TINs) on a range of specific topics. The aim is to ensure that advice on best practice is available to everyone who is involved in excavation work with the hope that this will make the industry safer.

The list of publications, most of which can be downloaded, is available on the STIG pages of the CPA website.

Special Offer:

At the moment, there is a fantastic offer for the Shoring Manual which is reduced from 25 quid to a mere Tenner! What better way to spend your evenings? Seriously, it's a good publication, and very good value - just get along to the CPA website - , and order your copy now.
