What we do?
Examples of temporary works include, but are not limited to:
Earthworks - trenches, excavations, temporary slopes and stockpiles. Structures - formwork, falsework, propping, facade retention, needling, shoring, edge protection, scaffolding, temporary bridges, site hoarding and signage, site fencing, cofferdams.
Equipment/plant foundations - tower crane bases, supports, anchors and ties for construction hoists and mast climbing work platforms (MCWPs), groundworks to provide suitable locations for plant erection, e.g. mobile cranes and piling rigs
Temporary Works Management
The correct design and execution of temporary works is an essential element of risk prevention and mitigation in construction. BS 5975:2008 provides recommendations and guidance on the procedural controls to be applied to all aspects of temporary works in the construction industry and on the design, specification, construction, use and dismantling of falsework.
