We provide construction engineering services both directly to contractors and specialists during the construction phase.
Also as an extension of our engineering design commissions for building owners and developers. This is mutually beneficial, as through combining our construction engineering and structural design expertise we can both innovate new construction methodologies and also strategically inform the initial stages of the concept design through to the construction phase. This integrated “designed for delivery” approach to design and construction streamlines project delivery and can bring measurable benefits including reductions in cost, time and waste, whilst mitigating project and safety risks.
Construction Equipment and Temporary Works Engineering
The successful construction and delivery of all buildings requires the selection of the most appropriate construction equipment be that the tower cranes or vertical transport systems to follow the chosen Construction Methodology. Construction equipment selection is often a compromise between the ideal selection and what is available in the marketplace at the time of the construction. The Construction Engineering teams from Robert Bird Group are often involved in the careful and long-term planning for equipment selections that enhance the outcome of construction projects – especially where the need to introduce bespoke pieces of construction equipment and complex installation design is required.
Robert Bird Group offers a suite of services in the area of temporary works engineering (TWE), from detailed design of temporary works for specialist trade contractors, to providing identification, scoping, procurement and third-party reviews of temporary works for managing contractors and project managers.
We offer strategic advice, planning, and detailed design services for :
- Tower crane ties, installation and sequencing
- Hoist ties, installation and sequencing
- Tower crane and hoist bases
- Specialty tower crane and hoist supports (eg grillages, bespoke crane towers, etc)
- Formwork and falsework
- Gantries and hoarding
- Site accommodation support
- Temporary access platforms
