Temporary Works

Temporary works both above or below ground can be undertaken by the practice whether it be works associated with rail, civil/geotechnical engineering, building or marine projects.

Our Expertise

Senior staff at Richter Associates have extensive professional backgrounds in all aspects of the industry. Their expertise covers the design of proprietary formwork and falsework systems, modular propping systems and heavy-duty bridge props as well as façade retention systems and so on.

We have completed many detailed projects involving various types of excavation support systems – traditional raking basement propping, cofferdams, ground anchored contiguous bored piled walls and top-down basement methods. We have conducted many fully independent checks of temporary works for principal contractors.
