ByrneLooby believe one of the greatest risks in construction lies in partially erected or partially demolished structures. We therefore apply rigorous design processes to ensure the temporary safety and stability of a wide variety of structures. Whilst always maintaining safety, there are great opportunities in the design of temporary works to provide a competitive advantage. This can be achieved through the development of smart solutions, collaborative working and in-depth consideration of construction methodologies. ByrneLooby offer a comprehensive temporary works design service on civil engineering and building projects.
ByrneLooby engineers have detailed knowledge of the design of retention systems for deep excavations. Variable geological conditions, excavation depths, construction methods, adjacent structures and movement tolerances combine to make each project unique, requiring a bespoke solution. Our portfolio includes basements for commercial buildings, shafts for tunnelling operations, deep drainage excavations and underground rail stations. We adopt an integrated geotechnical and structural approach and we undertake complex numerical modelling to understand the impact of these excavations on surrounding over-ground and underground assets.
The efficient design and integration of temporary works solutions has the potential to deliver substantial cost and program savings for large building projects. ByrneLooby engineers work closely with building contractors to understand their preferred construction techniques and to develop temporary works solutions that fit hand-in-hand with these methodologies. We regularly suggest and design alternative permanent works that, when integrated with smart temporary works, streamline the overall construction project.
Civil Engineering Structures
The design of temporary works for civil engineering projects requires a wide range of capabilities. Along with temporary structural support, projects may also require temporary traffic diversions, utility diversions, environmental plans, earthworks support, crane and piling platforms, dewatering or other bespoke requirements. ByrneLooby has expertise across all these construction disciplines and we regularly assist our clients with the aim of adding value through clever temporary works solutions.
