Independent Design Checking


48.3 provide a design checking service for designs produced by other design companies or scaffolding design consultancies, scaffolding contractor in-house design teams or main contractors. This is an impartial assessment with results provided in a streamlined review process.

The team at 48.3 have designed or checked in excess of 500 scaffolding and temporary works designs on Network Rail projects. We can produce designs or design checks as part of the outgoing Network Rail 'Form C' submission process in accordance with Network Rail standard NR/SP/CIV/003, or as part of the new Network Rail 'Form 003' submission process in accordance with Network Rail standard NR/L2/CIV/003.

Ongoing projects where the Form A and Form B submission occurred prior to the new documentation coming into effect can still be assessed using the outgoing Form A/B/C/D/E process. However, new projects will use the new Form 001/002/003 process for engineering assurance. Design submissions to the Network Rail 'Outside Parties' department are all subject to the new assurance process.

BS 5975:2008 specifies that all temporary works should be subjected to a design check – the depth and scope of which are defined as four categories. 48.3 engage this procedure as both design and checking engineers and can provide this design check on your design if required.
