Temporary works

    Case Study - Temporary Works

    Together with the contractors Project Manager, JMS designed, developed and oversaw a works scheme allowing for the redevelopment of an old public house into accommodation.

    Key points: 

    • Existing historic pub building converted to residential accommodation
    • The gable wall was in a poor unstable condition and required shoring and propping to ensure it could be safely repaired
    • Temporary props, timber sheathing walls and shores were specified to stabilise the structure whilst it was repaired
    • With an ingenious method of using timber framing to stabilise the building, the building was made safe prior to starting any demolition work
    • A traditional propping scheme could then be used to support the gable whilst the existing stonework was removed to allow for repairs to be carried out
