COMMERCIAL SHOTCRETE & GUNITE
Top Gun of Virginia is a premier supplier of commercial shotcrete and gunite services on the east coast. Shotcrete and gunite are forms of pneumatically-applied concrete which can be used to build or repair structures. Shotcrete and gunite can perform jobs which are not possible or are more difficult with traditional “form and pour” concrete applications.
Top Gun uses our own volumetric trucks to apply engineer-certified mixes of both wet and dry process applications to meet any need.

Both Wet and Dry Process
We use volumetric trucks and can apply our own certified mixes or use wet process from Ready Mix Plants and dry process pre-packaged material from manufacturers
Shotcrete & Gunite Pumps
Our gunite pumps can pump up to 400 linear feet (LF) and our shotcrete pumps can pump up to 1400 LF horizontal and 900 LF vertical
Our nozzlemen are ACI/ASA Certified and each has 1000+ hours nozzling, passed a written exam and shot sample panels (both wet and dry) graded by an American Shotcrete Association Examiner before being certified. We certify our nozzlemen to assure we provide a quality finished product that meets ACI Standards.
We work closely with engineering and architectural firms to design and develop the proper specifications and drawing information for projects utilizing shotcrete applications.
We have the knowledge and the experience to ensure that all of the details are properly thought through before starting work on a job.
Determining the Best Process for Your Engineering
We work with structural engineers that specialize in slope stabilization, soil nails, H pile wood lagging retaining walls, and under pinning.
We can provide PE stamped drawings for these and other advanced projects along with an estimate.
Structural Shotcrete applied to the face of a soil nail wall for permanent or temporary support
Soil Nail Facing
Structural Shotcrete applied to the face of these structures to create a wall and further stabilize the system used to support excavation
H Pile and Wood Lagging Facing
OSHA approved shooting Shotcrete on slopes for safety purposes in lieu of sheet piles as it is a more cost effective method and can be done quickly to speed up production schedules. We also work with Amusement Parks to use colored Shotcrete on slopes that mimic the surrounding area and eliminate the growth of underbrush, weeds and grass
Stabilize aged brick and stone foundations and facades with Structural Shotcrete and Gunite
Foundation and Building Façade Stabilization
Use of Structural Shotcrete to stabilize an existing structure for future development
Underpinning as Specified by PE Stamped Drawings
Shotcrete applied over rip rap to stabilize the structure and provide a rough road training surface
Off Road Obstacle Courses for Government and Military Training
A method in lieu of form and pour which can reduce forming and labor costs by 40% and speed up production schedules. There are no cold joints in Shotcrete applications and if used in lieu of form and pour there is little or no liquid head pressure. Complex shapes require very little or no formwork
One Sided Wall Forming for Hard to Form Radius Walls and Other Structures
Using Shotcrete can reduce labor costs by 50% and speed up a production schedule as more area can be placed faster than hand patching
Vertical and Overhead Repairs
Shotcrete is placed over systems and forms PE designed by others
Shotcrete applied in ditches to provide better irrigation and to eliminate wash outs
"CADCON and our sister company FdNCON have worked in varying capacities with Top Gun over the last 10+ years. We have been an engineering consultant, a sub-contractor and a contractor hiring Top Gun as a subcontractor. We have provided engineering for them; we have provided job functions that they themselves did not provide for many clients and we have used them on our projects as well. Obviously, we have had experience with them in many construction functions. In all instances the experience has been exemplary. Their professionalism in quality control, price control, standardization, job performance and scheduling is as good or better than anyone in the industry. We will continue to be an avid Top Gun proponent in the future and recommend that you do the same for your shotcrete needs.”
