Most of TITAN's shoring equipment is
modular, meaning all beams are standard
lengths, but they can be configured in
different ways to accommodate various
conditions. The company performs all
of the engineering and design in-house,
placing professional engineering stamps
on every drawing.
'We are in the
providing simple solutions
"We provide and engineer the scaffold
structure to support the concrete structure,"
Bacon explains. "Buildings are not just a
box, so the first floor is not shored the same
as the third floor and a 12-foot ceiling is
not the same as a 27-foot ceiling. From an
architectural perspective it's interesting.
Interesting to us means complicated. We
are in the business of providing simple
solutions for complex situations."
Safety is TITAN's No. 1 focus because
people's lives literally hang in the balance.
"It's a massive issue that trumps everything
else and the reason why we work hard at
quality control and design, and why we
review, check, double-check, triple-check
and stamp our drawings," Bacon says. "We
want people to go home the same way they
came to work - not injured - and we've had
remarkably few instances."
TITAN's sales team will first meet with
concrete contractors who need to rent or
buy a shoring solution. The company will
demonstrate how TITAN's system is more
efficient, allowing them to build faster and
at a lower cost, saving money on labor. Once
the job is sold, the company's engineering
team in Tempe, Ariz., takes over to design
and engineer a shoring solution for the
building in an efficient manner. TITAN's
operations and yard network are responsible to certify the equipment is cleaned,
inspected and staged in a balanced fashion
to ensure on-time delivery to jobsites
throughout North America. "We have much
more efficient systems than the standard
of yesteryear," Bacon says. "No one had
modular, pre-engineered systems and we
moved the market preference. Our systems
are efficient, lightweight, versatile and we
are recognized as one of the best."
There from the Start
TITAN says its client-focused operation is
one of the many reasons it remains successful. "We continue to improve the systems
we have and look for new and better ways,"
Bacon notes. "We work very hard to do what
we say we will do. If we say it will be there
