Temporary Works in Transportation

Temporary works are an essential part of the construction process, undertaken before permanent construction can begin.  Although generally removed when the project is complete, they are a crucial phase to pave the way for on-time, efficient and safe building.  ByrneLooby has provided temporary works designs for a range of highway, metro, rail and marine, transportation and large civil infrastructural projects in Ireland, the UK and the Middle East.  By providing innovative temporary works solutions, we help contractors deliver on schedule and within budget. We regularly add value through clever, pragmatic, and buildable cost-efficient temporary works solutions

With our specialist skills in geotechnics, structural and civil engineering, our consultants can manage the entire building construction process from bespoke temporary works to permanent works supervision.We combine our seasoned construction experience with rigorous design processes to prioritise safety.  Our temporary works designs can often provide a competitive advantage for our clients by developing intelligent solutions.

ByrneLooby offer a comprehensive temporary works design service:

  • Deep excavations
  • Tunnelling
  • Building structures 
  • Civil engineering structures


Deep Excavations
ByrneLooby engineers have detailed knowledge and practical experience in designing retention systems for deep excavations in soil and rock. Variable geological conditions, excavation depths, construction methods, adjacent structures and movement tolerances combine to make each project unique, requiring bespoke solutions. We combine our seasoned construction experience with rigorous design processes to prioritise safety. Our temporary works designs can often provide a competitive advantage for our clients by developing intelligent solutions.

Our experience includes:

  • Deep excavation support systems for rail and metro shafts to facilitate tunnelling operations
  • Utility diversions
  • Deep drainage excavations & underground road/rail crossings
  • Temporary rock and soil slope stabilisation measures for deep excavations and borrow areas
  • Sophisticated diaphragm wall or piling support solutions for underground metro stations
  • We adopt an integrated geotechnical and structural approach, conducting complex soil-structure interaction numerical modelling to understand the impact of excavations on surrounding over-ground and underground assets.
  • Roads and Highways


The design of temporary works for transportation projects requires multiple engineering capabilities and expertise.
ByrneLooby has expertise across all these disciplines:

  • Temporary structural support for bridge beams
  • Falsework & formwork systems
  • Temporary river crossing structures
  • Temporary traffic diversions
  • Utility diversions
  • Environmental plans
  • Earthworks support
  • Staged construction
  • Sequencing of both earthworks and highway structures
  • Crane and piling platforms
  • Dewatering
  • Bespoke temporary works requirements
