Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Tunnel construction by a Spanish company in Lima
Spanish term or phrase: en clave y hombros
The source text is discussing a road tunnel project that took place in Lima near a pre-Inca excavation site--I don't know if this information helps. Maybe it's a delicate technique?

Realización de una ejecución previa de paraguas de 45 micropilotes de 20-22 m espaciados 50 cm en clave y hombros.

I can't even find this collection of terms in a Google search. Have you got any ideas?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Wow, thank you so much! I'm learning a lot about Spanish architectural terminology with these assignments. I had no idea that an arch had "kidneys"!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  TomWalker: You're right to put "kidneys" in quotes - in English they're more commonly known as "springers."
