Our Expertise

The senior staff at Richter & 48.3 come from an extensive, wide range of professional backgrounds covering all aspects of the industry. From the design of proprietary formwork and falsework systems to modular propping systems, heavy-duty bridge props, as well as fa├žade retention systems, they have built a reputation for temporary works delivered to an exceptional standard.

An extensive track record for temporary works includes detailed projects involving various types of excavation support systems, traditional raking basement propping, cofferdams, ground anchored contiguous bored piled walls, and top-down basement methods. On occasion, principal contractors draw upon our expertise by asking us to conduct fully independent checks of temporary works, ensuring a gold standard of safety and project viability.

We have extensive experience with temporary marine works with our practice being called on for general harbour works, jetties, berthing dolphins, temporary bridge piers, and the Nab Tower project in the Solent.

We can develop cost-effective temporary solutions that are fully integrated with any permanent works on site. Our marine works expertise allows us to undertake the necessary assessments, and draw up a comprehensive package.
