TEMPORARY WORKS are as the name suggests temporary in nature and can consist of propping as pictured for vertical loads or shoring for horizontal loads. They are often required to support the final structure also known as the Permanent works at key stages during the construction process.

The role of temporary work can be multiple and complex for such purposes as follows.

Load – bearing the load until the permanent bearers are in place

Stability – maintaining temporary stability until a more permanent item is constructed to do this.

Movement – control movement and deflections until connecting permanent works components are brought together.
