The HSE is having a ‘crackdown’ on the design and erection of temporary works. BSP Consulting is very aware of the demands on contractors in this field and offers specialist design, checking and construction advice on temporary works to help contractors comply with the requirements set out in BS5975:2008.
A significant aspect of BS5975:2008 is the need for independent checking of temporary works design.
We recognise most temporary works designed are by plant manufacturers. For simple schemes these may be adequate, however complex sites require the full integration of the temporary works with the permanent works,and local features of the structure may require ‘on site modification’ to the design which may invalidate proprietary designs.
BSP Consulting has expertise in the design and checking of the following areas:-
Piling mat design
Sheet pile design
Crane base design
Deep excavation support
