Temporary Works in Construction Research Symposium - 5th September 2017 (August 2017)

Venue: Northumbria University, Newcastle

You are invited to attend the inaugural temporary works in construction research symposium

All completed civil engineering projects experience several temporary states during their construction.  Yet the specific issues of these temporary states, and the temporary works that are often required to support them or give access, are relatively little studied. 

This inaugural symposium, supported by the Temporary Works Forum (TWf), is an opportunity to help steer the future research focus of the temporary works sector.

If you would like to attend (there is no charge) please contact Vikki Edmondson (
