Temporary Works is any temporary arrangement of structure required to construct a permanent structure or used to support a permanent structure during its erection until it becomes self-supporting. It also includes any temporary arrangement required for construction activities such as site hoarding.
Our recent involvement has included providing Temporary Works design for a range of solutions including tower crane bases, working platforms, review of historic structures subjected to temporary loads from crane lifting operations, site hoarding design, slope stability of open excavations, crash decks over waterways and complex propping schemes.
We have acted as Temporary Works Advisors to a number of major Contractors and Developers on a range of complex projects. Our role has been to advise the construction team as to possible construction methodologies, develop concept solutions to overcome logistical challenges and provide independent checking of Sub-Contractor designs.
We are also currently performing roles under BS5975 including acting as Temporary Works Coordinator and Independent Checking Engineers.
