Temporary works (TW) are the parts of a construction project that are needed to enable the permanent works to be built. Usually the TW are removed after use – eg access scaffolds, props, shoring, excavation support, falsework and formwork, etc.

Our services include following:

  • Facade Retention
  • Basement Shoring
  • Needling
  • Structural Propping
Basement Shoring

Pile walls, trench shoring, and soil nail walls are three options when considering temporary shoring options. Soldier pile walls are an incredibly quick construction method that consists of H-shaped steel piles, concrete holes, and wood lagging.

Facade retention

The removal and renewal of a building’s innards, walls, columns and floors while retaining its original front or outer walls– plays an important role in preserving the architectural character and historic fabric of many city centres.


Needling refers to the process of inserting a temporary beam through a wall for structural support of the wall above the level of the beam. Effectively, it is supporting a wall that is already built. … Similarly, original wall and foundations may be removed.

Structural propping

Structural propping is a system of structural members used temporarily to support loads during construction. The forces arising from these loads must be fully resolved, using props or columns to provide all the support needed for the work under construction, such as beams, formwork, etc
