Construction Engineering

With 25-30% of the build cost being "temporary works", getting the right advice is critical to the success of a project.
Glen Hetherington, Technical Director - Structural

At TTW our engineers provide construction engineering services across the industry to a range of landmark projects of varying complexity. We understand construction engineering to be a critical factor in the success of a project. We add value by delivering efficient, practical, construction-friendly solutions that mitigate site risks, delays, and minimise construction costs for any project.

 

Our ability to advise on the most suitable temporary works, taking into consideration the condition of the structure, the surrounding environment, and adjoining or neighbouring buildings, ensure a seamless phasing between all stages of construction.
