Cat iii Checks

Providing independent Cat iii checks on temporary works projects within the construction, demolition and rail industries.

Lead engineer Laurent Davesne has more than ten years’ experience performing Cat iii checks on large and small projects in the UK and internationally.

Why Moreland For Cat iii Checks

Traditional engineering consultancies may struggle to have the expertise and available resources to complete competent Cat iii checks. Moreland was founded to give civil engineering firms access to independent, proactive and experienced engineers to complete Cat iii checks.

Category III Checks

Moreland deliver Cat iii checks that are BS 5975 compliant and outline clearly modifications that may be required. Moreland will not simply return a check that states the design passes or fails, but will where appropriate raise issues and discuss with the designer to resolve queries, while maintaining the requisite level of independence. Having worked as designers, we understand the needs and process the designer is working with. Our expertise and experience also allows us to review the holistic value of the design, making recommendations on how the design can be improved.

Moreland has experience designing and cat iii checking the majority of proprietary temporary works, system scaffold, traditional scaffold, formwork systems, excavation bracing systems, as well as bespoke designs. If you are wondering whether we could help on your specific project, contact us for some advice.
