As construction projects become larger, more complex and are constructed both faster and under more adverse conditions--the use of temporary facilities is more prevalent. Temporary facilities by definition, are the means and methods utilized (temporarily) to affect construction where interim measures are required to support or enhance the construction sequence. The use of 'temporary facilities' is limited only by imagination and innovation. Frequently, devising temporary facilities is only part of the challenge. Planning, organization and logistics are as important as the temporary facility itself, and in many cases, more important. A construction solution utilizing 'temporary facilities' is only as good as the users ability to deliver, construct and begin utilization of the (temporary) facility for its intended use.
