By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:
Describe the principles of basic temporary works design methodologies
Explain temporary loads, potential modes of failure and practical considerations
Calculate concrete pressures and design formwork, falsework and back-propping
Design a simple trench support scheme
Apply basic wind loading and design a site hoarding
Design outrigger spreader pads for mobile cranes
Design a simple needling scheme
Apply the principles behind temporary works for demolition, facade retention and structural propping, basement construction and scaffolding design
Discuss loads and modes of failure
Civil or structural engineering graduates, from contractors to consultants, with some basic understanding of the design process, or those who wish to further their design knowledge and experience

This two-day, in-person course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
This course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This two-day course extends the principles developed in the Understanding structural behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computational output and member sizing.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
