Thatcher Foundations was contacted in 2008 to provide and install 50 trench feet of PZ 27 sheeting and bracing for a pipeline repair project.  Thatcher provided in-house design-build services for the project.

Access to the site was difficult, due to its wetlands location.  Thatcher's equipment was placed on crane mats to minimize the impact on the soil and grasses.  The project utilized temporary sheeting, which was installed and removed.  The sheeting can be re-used on future projects, eliminating waste and the presence of a foreign body in the earth.

Despite the soft footing, Thatcher completed this project incident-free, with over 600 safe manhours.
