How Chocking Frames Can Limit Tower Crane Sway and Deflection
A recent project in London utilised internal climbing cranes that used chocking frames to provide horizontal restraint to limit sway and deflection of two internal climbing tower cranes for the construction of a 35 storey structure in Central London. What Is A Chocking Frame? A chocking frame is a structural...
BS6187 - Understanding Load Paths On Demolition Schemes
Understanding the load paths of a structure is an important part of construction and demolition schemes as it allows engineers to understand how a structure works in its current condition. Demolition schemes that do not accurately understand the load paths and how they change as structures are altered, can lead...
How To Eliminate or Reduce Temporary Works
The most effective way to eliminate or reduce temporary works on construction projects is to consider the engineering requirements as early as possible. Investing in early engineering input ensures that teams can identify and mitigate site constraints, engineering challenges and resource considerations during the design process. Allowing the development of...
