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. Relatively few bridge decks are nowadays cast in situ on a birdcage scaffold or spanning falsework structure.

This article considers temporary works, in particular the use of temporary supports, to precast concrete bridge beams during deck construction.

The article is aimed at permanent works designers involved with the design elements of this form of construction, as well as civil and structural engineering undergraduate students.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 3: Integration of permanent and temporary works

The permanent works designer (PWD) has a major influence on the temporary works and can, for example: eliminate temporary works, e.g. through the use of steel decking rather than timber falsework minimise the use of temporary works, e.g. by using the permanent capping beam as a waling in basement construction design the permanent works so that simple temporary works solutions can be used.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 8: Use of modular hydraulic propping systems for the temporary support

Well-designed and well-executed temporary works solutions can lead to big cost savings, while providing a safe and efficient environment for the permanent works to be built. This is particularly the case with below-ground temporary works, where there are a great many challenges to be faced by a temporary works designer.

Temporary Works Toolkit. Part 18: Introduction to site hoarding

Site hoarding is a temporary structure erected around the perimeter of construction sites to prevent any unauthorised person gaining access. Hoarding can be erected using a modular system or be a bespoke installation. This article provides an introduction to the design of conventional timber hoardings using plywood sheets.
