Temporary works provide an engineered solution that is used to support or protect either a structure during construction, an item of plant or equipment, the sides of an excavation during construction operations or to provide access. Temporary works need to be planned and managed. The principle contractor should oversee all temporary works on site. The design and site management team would normally collaborate to deal with unforeseen items that may arise during the construction. Allowances should be made to accommodate any unforeseen changes following the site strip out, as existing buildings are prone to reveal unknowns once the wall and floor finishes are removed.
