Course description

Temporary Works Design (Above Ground) - 1 Day Open / Scheduled Course

This is a one day training course which focuses on temporary works above ground. The course is complemented by a similar training course focussing on works below ground.

Correct design, co-ordination and execution of temporary works is extremely crucial 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.

This training course encourages the exchange of ideas and experiences among delegates in the form of comments and questions, group discussion, and team exercises. The training programme is equally suitable for contractors, consultants and specialist sub-contractors.

  • How to design significant temporary works
  • How site conditions affect the design of temporary works
