Temporary Works Design
RPS has provided temporary works design on numerous large civil and structural engineering projects.
RPS has a proactive design philosophy giving careful consideration for health and safety, cost and the environmental impact of the design solution. We design feasible and practical temporary work solutions that can be left as part of the permanent works or readily removed after their function has been successfully completed. We use the latest design techniques such as Building Information Modelling (BIM) in optimising both temporary and permanent works solutions.
Our temporary works design services include:
Retaining structures and scaffolding support structures
Falsework, formwork & scaffolding support structures
Propping, pinning, underpinning & shoring for building refurbishments
Slope and embankment stability and retention
Condition surveys & construction monitoring
Basement & underground car parking construction
Surface water treatment systems
Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP)
Temporary trench support and sheetpiling
Temporary access tracks and hardstandings
Our civil and structural engineering teams collaborate with other team members and disciplines to provide design solutions that are fully coordinated with the permanent works.
