Temporary Works: Principles of Design and Construction is the first reference book to deliver authoritative and comprehensive guidance on temporary works for practising engineers.

The practicalities of temporary works are an essential, cost- and safety-critical aspect of all construction projects, but receive minimum coverage in training and remain poorly understood by many engineers. Covering all sub-specialties of this wide-ranging topic in a single resource, this book is invaluable for permanent works designers, engineers, technicians and contractors looking to minimise costs, maximise efficiency and ensure the safety of those working on site.

Temporary Works is
  • the only reference book to provide complete coverage of temporary works sub-specialties in a single volume
  • written by more than twenty industry experts established in specific fields, from falsework to floating plant
  • informed by the latest European codes complete with the explanatory detail needed to use them and up to date with current safety standards
  • a source of immediate, practical solutions to common problems and extensive references for readers to build on existing knowledge.

Drawing on years of collective experience of temporary works in practice, this book is a key reference for temporary and permanent works designers alike, a useful training aid for new engineers, and a timely and relevant contribution to furthering knowledge in this often-overlooked field.
