TEMPORARY WORKS PROCESS
At Devon Surveyors Network we have the skills to undertake both the temporary and permanent works designs. Devon Surveyors Network process for structural engineers to provide the temporary works is:
Meeting with the contractor to discuss how they would like to approach the construction. Every contractor will have a slightly different take on how to approach a project that best suits their company’s skill sets. We have found it better to include the contractor at the beginning of the process.
Scheme sequences: Devon Surveyors Network provide a sequence of plans that takes the project from the existing conditions to the final design. Step by step the drawings progress with the design moving forward in the sequence that the contractor needs to work. Often this can take up 15-20 A1 temporary drawings.
Method statement. In line with the scheme sequences a written document will be produced. This describes in words the sequence to follow.
Temporary works calculations: Once the temporary schemes are in place the items that require structural design can be identified. Similar to building regulations we produce a pack of calculations for the elements used.
