Ross Engineers plays a crucial role in the development and implementation of temporary works within construction projects.
Temporary works for construction projects

Temporary works refer to the structures and systems that are put in place to support construction activities and ensure the safety of workers and the integrity of the permanent structure during construction. The structural engineers at Ross Engineers are responsible for designing these temporary structures, such as scaffolding, hoardings, formwork, and shoring systems, to withstand the loads and forces encountered during construction. Their expertise is essential in creating efficient and safe solutions that comply with industry standards and regulations.

Collaboration with the project team

In the initial stages of a construction project, Ross Engineers collaborate with the project team to understand the specific requirements and constraints of the site. They conduct site assessments, considering factors like site conditions and geometry, and the characteristics of the permanent structure. Using this information, our engineers then formulate a design for the temporary works, taking into account load capacities, stability, and the overall safety of the construction site. This design process involves structural analysis and calculations to ensure that the temporary works can support the construction activities without compromising safety or the integrity of the final structure.

Overseeing the implementation

Throughout the construction phase, the Ross Engineers team oversee the implementation of the temporary works, providing guidance to construction teams and making any necessary adjustments to the design as unforeseen challenges arise. We play a key role in conducting regular inspections to verify the stability and safety of the temporary structures. By actively engaging in the construction process, Ross Engineers ensures that the temporary works remain effective and reliable, contributing to the overall success of the project.
