Founded in 2012, Chief Executive Officer Simon Goldsmith set up SJG Temporary Works Ltd to directly expose a niche in the market: the demand for an independent expert consultancy that specialises in Temporary Works construction.
From working closely with the HSE throughout his career, Simon recognised this demand within the construction industry. With this insight, we have quickly cemented ourselves as an invaluable contact for some of the largest and most ambitious principal construction contractors in the UK.
At SJG Temporary Works Ltd we pride ourselves on being reactive, approachable and intuitive and the services we offer adapt to an ever-changing construction market.
What is Temporary Works?
Temporary Works is a phrase used to describe an engineered solution designed to support or protect existing structures during construction. Essentially, Temporary Works encompasses every aspect of a building site that is used to support the Permanent Works, or to enable works throughout the construction phases. To meet British Standards any aspect that falls under this umbrella terminology has to be designed, engineered, maintained and supervised to avoid misuse or neglect. See what the HSE have to say on the subject here.
SJG Temporary Works Ltd strives to be able to offer a full range of specialist Temporary Works services in order to increase our reputation for expertise and to meet all of our client’s Temporary Works requirements.

The Development of SJG Temporary Works Ltd
Our rapid development and large project portfolio has been built upon a balance of satisfied clients on project specific work and also from securing numerous consultancy service agreements with major contractors. Procuring multiple service agreements within the first year of trading not only proved our consistency of service from day one, but it also shows an immediate professional trust. Many of the companies that we are engaged with consider us as their internal Temporary Works departments, based externally.
Although North-Yorkshire based, SJG have always been involved in schemes running the length and breadth of the UK. As our client base and in-turn employees have increased, so has our geographical reach. Managing Temporary Works on Projects in London, Belfast, Glasgow and Aberystwyth we pride ourselves on responsiveness and coverage throughout the UK - see our current sites here.
SJG Temporary Works Ltd operates successfully to a company ethos, which is introduced to every new member of our young but prospering company. The ethos created by Simon Goldsmith relates directly to every aspect of the organisation and ensures a quality of service and product throughout.

Therefore our management systems ensure that a commitment to quality and health and safety is ingrained into every aspect of our operations. Moreover, we are Constructionline accredited, this is a strong indication of our industry specific quality of service.
“Ever since its inception in 2012, I have strived to instill a professional and determined work ethic from the top down. I am proud to say that within my company I am surrounded by Directors and Senior Staff who are experts in their relevant fields. This allows SJG to thrive in a competitive and relatively flourishing construction market. Moreover, I have invested heavily in apprentice and graduate schemes in both our engineering and commercial sectors.
