Temporary Works Designs

Temporary Works Design

What we do?

Temporary works is defined in BS5975: 2008 "Code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework" as "(those) parts of the works that allow or enable construction of, protect, support or provide access to, the permanent works and which might or might not remain in place at the completion of the works".

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.
