Temporary works are an important consideration on most construction sites to enable efficient construction of the permanent works, to manage potential risks to worker health and safety, to provide means of access and egress and to minimise potential damage to adjacent structures and services.
The geotechnical engineers at GGC have extensive experience in design and construction processes, local knowledge of the ground conditions and familiarity with local practices that are essential for efficient and practical temporary works design.
We have a collaborative approach and will work with your project team to deliver temporary works that are tailored to meet the challenges encountered on your site. We are committed to delivering on time for every project.

- Material handling and reuse
- Onsite verification of design assumptions
- Working platforms
- Retention systems
- Soil stabilisation/ reinforced soils
- Grouting and underpinning
- Foundations and piling
- Groundwater control
- Constructability assessment and advice
- Review and assessment of geotechnical claims
- Value engineering review
- Expert Witness
DESIGN AND VERIFICATION OF WORKING PLATFORMS FOR PILING RIGS AND TRACKED PLANT
Our engineers routinely provide assessment, investigation and specification advice for working platforms for piling rigs, tracked plant and heavy equipment. We are able to mobilise to site quickly to provide an on-site assessment and advice. If there are specific challenges, such as high loads, soft subgrade conditions, nearby slopes or sensitive structures, our experienced team can present options and provide solutions.
SLOPE STABILITY AND EXCAVATIONS
We are able to offer practical experience and innovative solutions to manage risks associated with working in and around excavations and close to slopes. Using our knowledge of local conditions and collaborating with the project team, our experienced engineers can design and specify temporary ground retention systems, sheet piles, contiguous bored and secant walls, ground anchors and temporary grouting solutions. We will work closely with contractors and structural engineers to provide solutions that are compatible with the construction processes and to meet the project requirements.
We are able to provide advice on dewatering, seepage control and surface water management during construction to minimise risks to the project. We are able to mobilise quickly to site to investigate the subsurface conditions, monitor groundwater conditions and provide interpretive engineering input.
FOUNDATIONS AND PILING
Our engineers have provided geotechnical input for shallow foundations, piles and deep foundations on some of Western Australia’s largest projects. We are able to use our up to date knowledge to provide advice from investigations and concept design stages through to detailed design and verification of foundations for temporary works and for permanent solutions.
