It can also be used for temporary ground support and preventing groundwater flow. The wet ground where the shaft is to be sunk is artificially frozen, excavated as though it were solid rock, then lined and sealed before being allowed to thaw. The process can also be applied to horizontal development. Specific hazards and risks arise from the reduced temperature. Control measures should be implemented to eliminate or minimise, so far as is reasonably practicable, the risks associated with ground freezing The Guide Tunnelling (Australia): Specific Hazards, Risks and Control Measures – Ground Freezing mobile app includes specific hazards, risks and control measures - ground freezing.

“I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.”
