Temporary Works Forum: Promoting stronger links with the industry

MGF’s Engineering Director, Steve Hesketh, hosted an event for the Temporary Works Forum on the 18th October 2022.

Representing MGF and appointed a Temporary Works Forum Director in December 2017, Steve was a founding member of the Temporary Works Forum. Since 2005, he has been focused on excavation temporary works design and manufacture in his role at MGF.


Over the last 17 years, Steve has made many contributions to the temporary works industry in the areas of digital best practice, excavation support best practice, and applying structural Eurocodes to temporary works product design. He is heavily involved with several Universities, providing guest lectures and promoting stronger links with the industry.

The event, held at The Institution of Structural Engineers in London, was packed with practical guidance that demonstrated how Temporary Work professionals are already embracing digital technologies and processes. Covering Digital Temporary Works, the event featured a deep dive into how these digital technologies are currently used.

Steve has been working with universities, offering summer placements within the engineering department at MGF, which have been successful in allowing students the time to immerse themselves in the working world of engineering, giving them the chance to work alongside qualified engineers on real projects.
