Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 10: Propping and needling

Many construction projects which involve partial or whole demolition, refurbishment, or working in close proximity to other buildings or structures are likely to require some form of temporary works. This may include: propping, needling, shoring, facade retention, crash decks, weather protection, temporary screens (to control noise or dust), etc. Temporary works are commonly the contractor’s responsibility. However, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) require that permanent works designers identify and communicate significant risks and take into account any temporary works that may be required during the construction phase. This article focuses on propping and needling.
