Temporary Works Engineering

At WBD we provide a wide range of temporary works and construction engineering services delivering innovative, practical and cost effective design solutions.

Our engineers are able to provide advice, design or checking services for a range of temporary works and along with our extensive civil, structural and geo-technical experience, we can help to reduce the cost and programme on all types of construction projects while improving safety and quality.

We are very driven to provide our clients with the highest level of service to ensure we deliver safe, practical, economic, and most importantly, contractor-friendly solutions. We are constantly challenging the rule of thumb and simple load comparison methods when designing temporary works for all of our Clients. We use advanced analysis methods including non-linear finite element analysis and 3D soil analysis to produce not only safe but also the most cost-efficient and optimised design solutions. Thanks to our hands-on proactive approach, we have managed to significantly reduce material waste and the cost of temporary work installations on our projects.

We are temporary works consultants on numerous large-scale projects across the UK including Embassy Garden’s SkyPool in Central London, South Quay Plaza’s 68-storey top-down construction and Wardian London, a residential double skyscraper development on Isle of Dogs.

Our project portfolio includes; crane supports and foundations, demolition work, drainage, and dewatering, embankment stability, façade retention, retaining walls, slip and jump forming, shafts and tunnel linings, hoarding, underpinning and basement excavation propping, slope stability, formwork and falsework, needling, scaffold, hoist supports and tie-ins, cantidecks, access systems, lifting operations, piling mats, river and marine work, independent (Category 3) checks of designs by others and many more.
