Temporary Works: Principles of Design and Construction

Temporary works have long been the poor relation of the construction process. Only when spectacular accidents have occurred, resulting in injuries and deaths, have they been given wide attention by the industry and the popular press. Yet there is little in the construction field that can be building without their use. Indeed, they form the interface between design and construction. Fully up-to-date with acts, codes (including Eurocodes), CDM regulations and forms of contract, Temporary Works presents a valuable reference to the method and theory, providing ideas and solutions for all aspects of temporary works.
