About this event

Correct design, co-ordination and execution of temporary works is essential to the overall requirement of any project to be completed in accordance with time, budget, and safety, health and environmental constraints.

Temporary Works design is different from design of permanent works in several respects, including:

  • Importance of understanding site operations and constraints
  • Need to work closely with the contractor
  • Importance of erection methods and co-ordination
  • Formwork and Falsework in particular are generally loaded to their full capacity

Temporary Works therefore has a code of practice BS5975 that, in addition to technical issues, also contains a section on procedural control and co-ordination.

The training course encourages the exchange of experience by means of delegate comments and questions, group discussion, and team exercises. It is equally suitable for contractors, consultants and specialist sub-contractors.

Learning objectives:

  • How to design significant temporary works
  • How site conditions affect the design of temporary works
  • The processes involved in temporary works design
  • The procedures in temporary works design, including temporary works coordination, in accordance with BS5975
