Temporary works design
Most construction projects which involve refurbishment, partial or whole demolition or working in close distance to other buildings or structures are likely to require some form of temporary works.
Structures Made Easy can offer design service in almost all traditional Temporary Works Design activities. This includes but not limited to
- Basement Propping design
- Propping Design
- Hoarding design
- Façade Retention design,
- Temporary Steel or concrete Structure design
- Crane Bases

- Risk assessment and Method statements
Temporary works can play crucial element in project success and it is important to understand the constraints of site, structure, neighbouring structures, final proposed layout, deflection limits etc when doing Temporary works to prevent partial or full collapse during construction.
The design elements shown on drawings and specification sheets should be followed properly on site and the principal contractor would always have overall responsibility for ensuring the works are carried out safely. The design and site management team would normally collaborate to deal with unforeseen items that may come up during construction following site strip out which couldn’t be seen from original surveys before construction.
Our key staff members allocated to a given project would have extensive experience in temporary works design and would ensure process is carried out as smooth as possible.
Structures Made Easy Ltd. can help in providing the necessary engineering method statements that are required especially for challenging projects such as deep basements. Such statements highlight the structural suitability of the proposal, proposed construction methods, health & safety and site preparation, sequence of work and temporary works involved.
