IDH was incorporated in 2011 in response to the increasing awareness of the need for quality temporary works design.

Our History

Since our formation in the UK we have grown rapidly, opening a second office in Krakow, Poland. We have developed a team of professional engineers able to design solutions for the most challenging temporary structures.

We offer design, design checking and independent advice for all your temporary works requirements and have gained industry confidence by providing economical, safe and practical designs.  Through our continued experience we understand the importance of providing engineered solutions that do not compromise the integrity of the permanent works.  Our designs focus on integrating with the planned phasing and optimising H&S, labour, plant and material efficiency.

Having worked on some of the largest and most complex structures in London and the South-East, as well as projects across the UK and Europe, we are experienced in working collaboratively with clients on projects of all scales and appreciate the individuality of each temporary works requirement, as well as the impact they have on the rest of the project.

If you’re looking for temporary works design expertise, our fully qualified engineers can provide complete, end-to-end solutions which are delivered efficiently and on budget.
