Alongside the launch of our new website, we are pleased to introduce MyConstruct – an intelligent digital tool that provides customers with access to over 500 standard temporary works solutions for low-risk groundworks projects.
With over 60 years’ engineering experience, we have used our knowledge and expertise to create a bank of standard temporary works solutions for low-risk groundworks schemes. The MyConstruct portal offers instant access to over 500 pre-engineered groundworks solutions, drastically reducing the turnaround time from enquiry to delivery of equipment on site for low-risk excavations. Every solution has been created as a Standard Solution, as defined in BS 5975:2019 section 13.10.
When accessing the MyConstruct portal, customers will be prompted to answer a series of straightforward questions about their project, such as the ground conditions, proposed dig methodology and the excavation depth. These responses will first be used to assess whether the project is suitable for a pre-engineered solution. If it is, the customer will then be automatically provided with the groundworks solution and design best suited to their individual project and inputted parameters.
Speaking about the launch, Dave Holland, National Engineering Director said: “At Mabey Hire, we have always been committed to improving our levels of customer service, which is why we have chosen to introduce the MyConstruct portal. Combining our knowledge and experience in temporary works with our large portfolio of groundworks equipment, MyConstruct offers our customers a quick, easy and efficient process.
“More importantly, they are also provided with the confidence and assurance that the temporary works design is the right one for their individual requirements. Within just a few clicks, they’ll know if a standard solution is available for their groundworks scheme and be provided with a pre-engineered design and unique reference number, ready for ordering via their local depot.”
The collection of standard solutions is suitable for small excavations - ranging from 1.44 metres to 6.6 metres in length and up to 3 metres deep - and all excavating methodologies, utilising our comprehensive portfolio of groundworks solutions, including trench sheets and bracing frames. Further development of the MyConstruct Portal will see solutions added from our extended temporary works offering.
Should a groundworks project be deemed too complex or high-risk for the implementation of a standard solution, our team of 70 engineers remain on hand, ready to assist in creating a bespoke temporary works design.
The MyConstruct portal is one of many new support features and tools we offer the temporary works industry and our customers. The new website launch has also seen improvements to our Technical Hub, containing brochures, guides, technical data and AutoCAD/Revit files, available to find and download quicker and easier.
