What is Temporary Works Design?

Temporary works design and engineering refers to any structure that is temporary.  During construction or maintenance works, unlike a permanent structure, temporary works are removed after completion of their application.  Temporary works are required to aid the construction of the final, permanent part of a project.

  • Propping – High-load propping, High strutting, back propping and temporary support towers.

Safe Temporary Works Design

Our company P.I.E.R.S (Professional, Innovative, Efficient, Reliable, Safe) are applied throughout our temporary works design process.

From initial concept discussion, through to installation. Consideration is given to P.I.E.R.S.

  • PRIORITY #1 – Risk identification and control
  • PRIORITY #2 – Efficiency (which is closely linked with safety and risk control)

At Alphasafe our approach to efficiency is closely linked with safety.  Improvements to efficiency equate to a reduction in working time and exposure to risks such as; manual handling, heat related risk, and/or working at height.

Risk identification and efficiency go hand in hand and are given careful consideration throughout our temporary works design 5 step process.
