TEMPORARY PROPPING

From Bid to Design, Delivery and Support

We work on large ground engineering projects by providing temporary excavation propping for shallow to deep basements, using our proprietary modular system.

ENQUIRE

WHAT WE OFFER

We design, supply and install temporary propping schemes for a range of major projects across the UK and around the world. We focus on close collaboration with our clients and partners to ensure a safe and successful temporary propping project, right from initial engagement and scoping through to design and project delivery.

Here's a snapshot of how we work with major contractors to collaborate and deliver propping projects.

02/ DEEP EXCAVATION SUPPORT

We collaborate with our clients and their partners from the initial design phase right the way through to delivery to site and installation, to removal at a project’s completion. Our in-house team of bid support and qualified civil, structural and mechanical engineers, analyse the feasibility of temporary works schemes and provide value engineered solutions to reduce costs and programme duration or improve site logistics.

OUR CAPABILITIES

  • Modular temporary propping system for excavation support – our unique system allowing props to be hydraulically preloaded and then locked off to give the structural characteristics of a steel propped system.
  • We also provide bespoke temporary steelwork, plunge column & bearing pile design, capping beam & pile wall design checks and Cat 3 checking of third-party temporary works designs.

03/ THE SYSTEM

We supply a simple to assemble, modular system, primarily based on four sections sizes that provides a span range from 1 to 41 metres, with Safe Working Loads up to 4000kN and a wide range of connections and accessories.

Our system includes:

  • Range of strut sizes up to 1000mm diameter.
  • Waling Beam – single and double variations.
  • Hydraulic Waling Beam.
  • Waling Beam Gallows Brackets.
  • Jack, Hydraulic Jack, Cradle, & various connections.

04/ TEMPORARY LOGISTICS DECK

Our Temporary Logistics Deck is a multi-purpose, modular, engineered logistics solution. Offering versatility as a logistics deck, a bridging system, or vehicle ramp between differing construction levels, it adapts to diverse project needs.

It is a modular system that allows for custom engineering to fit unique layouts, saving time and costs for projects. In addition, by reducing the carbon footprint of construction activities, the system can be used as part of a sustainable building approach to project construction.

This proprietary deck is the optimal choice for projects seeking to enhance efficiency and flexibility while meeting the bespoke requirements of construction.

05/ STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY

Our Remote Load Monitoring System that allows the site team and off-site structural engineers to view accurate, live, real-time readings of prop loadings, 24/7.

All date is available online for quick reviewing and can be downloaded in various metrics such as graphs or tables.

With pre-set trigger limits using a traffic light system against set values, automated alerts can be sent to the project team to instigate an action plan and take corrective action before props could become overloaded.

06/ PROJECT DELIVERY

Scheduling

Our operations team will work with your logistics team to create a transport and install schedule which works around your site limitations and other deliveries.


Installation & Supervision

Our engineers can come to site to train your site team how to install and pressurise the system, or we can provide full installation services.


Checks

We are happy to attend site with 3rd party engineers to carry out checks and provide ongoing support.


Ongoing Support

We will have regular site meetings to ensure you have the support you need. In addition, your engineers have direct access to the design engineers that worked on your scheme, by email, phone, or video call.
