Temporary Works

When your project requires a high standard of temporary works, we design and initiate a temporary works plan with the maximum level of efficiency, using our expertise and design faculties to factor in every variable at play.

Whether your temporary works are above or below ground, we cover rail, civil/geotechnical engineering, building or marine projects, using careful planning and industry knowledge to deliver temporary works in a way that adds value and reduces waste.

Our Expertise

Our senior staff at Richter come from an extensive, wide range of professional backgrounds covering all aspects of the industry. From the design of proprietary formwork and falsework systems, to modular propping systems, heavy-duty bridge props, as well as façade retention systems, we have built a reputation for temporary works delivered to an exceptional standard.

Our proven track record for temporary works includes 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. On occasion, principal contractors draw upon our expertise by asking us to conduct fully independent checks of temporary works, ensuring a gold standard of safety and project viability.

Our expertise of temporary works combined with our permanent works capability gives us a valuable insight into the practical issues facing Contractors.

We have extensive experience with temporary marine works with our practice being called on for general harbour works, jetties, berthing dolphins, temporary bridge piers, and the Nab Tower project in the Solent.

We can develop cost-effective temporary solutions that are fully integrated with any permanent works on site. Our marine works expertise allows us to undertake the necessary assessments, and draw up a comprehensive package.
