For most residents of Denver, CO, and surrounding areas, the Denver Union Station has been a city landmark for as long as they can remember.

The name Denver Union Station brings to mind the impressive stone structure dating from 1914. However, the first train steamed into Denver in 1870 and for the next few years, railroads built individual depots. In 1881, the first Union Station consolidated rail traffic under one roof.

For excavation projects requiring manned entry, shielding and shoring trench walls is a major cost. Material and labor prices escalate as excavations cover more area and become deeper. On many large projects -- especially long runs of large-diameter pipe installation -- slide rail systems have become the preferred method of preventing the collapse of trench walls.
