Temporary Works

The correct design and execution of temporary works is an essential element of risk prevention and mitigation in construction. BS5975:2019 provides guidance on the procedural controls to be applied to all aspects of temporary works. We have several Temporary Works Coordinators (TWC) experienced in undertaking the TWC role for construction projects on the electricity network and with a thorough knowledge of BS5795:2019 and client requirements, such as National Grid’s TP184 procedure.

Typical temporary works that we have experience in managing include:

  • Jacking and skidding of transformers and reactors
  • Crane lifts for the installation and removal of HV equipment
  • Deep excavations
  • Joint bays and tents to facilitate cable joining
  • Sheeted scaffolds (e.g. around cable sealing end compounds to provide a suitable clean area for terminating the cable)
  • Construction of piling mats
  • Formwork and falsework for new foundations
  • Protection scaffolds
  • Installation and removal of through-wall bushings
  • Demolition of noise enclosures
