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.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 11: Temporary works associated with precast concrete bridge beam const

Current highway bridge designs in the UK tend to favour either composite steel girders with a precast or in situ concrete deck for long spans, or precast concrete beams with an in situ concrete deck for spans of less than 40m. This article considers temporary works, in particular the use of temporary supports, to precast concrete bridge beams during deck construction.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 13: The importance of understanding construction methodology

A structure in its permanent state cannot be ‘wished into place’. Appropriate consideration must be given to construction methodology so that permanent works can be optimised, temporary works minimised and trade interfaces simplified. This article presents a list of general, high-level considerations that relate to construction methodology and optimisation of temporary/permanent works, with a number of examples provided.
