About TWD:

Temporary Works Design; Engineered to function!

Temporary Works Design (TWD) is an engineering firm specialized in the design and fabrication of customized structures and tools for big civil and offshore contractors. Because every project is unique we work from concept to detail, with flexibility, practicality and most important creativity as the driving forces behind each of our designs. Together with the client we come to the best solution for the construction projects.

Examples are giant “robot arms” for installing the biggest wind turbine foundations offshore; installing 250 caissons (big watertight concrete structure) of 9000 ton each for a new harbour in North-Africa; or the design of the jacking constructions that supported the Rijksmuseum during its renovation.

Another example is a suspension bridge in Norway, just above the Arctic Circle. The 1200 meter long suspension bridge was built to improve traffic. The contractor was suspending 30 steel deck segments from two main cables resting on two 175-metre-high concrete masts. Each unique deck segments weighs up to 250 tonnes. TWD designed a winch system that allowed the exact positioning of the crane ship. This made the placing of the deck segments much faster than with a ship alone and it only took two weeks to place the decking.

Work environment
Working at TWD means working in a friendly environment amongst creative, talented and ambitious people. You work in a young, yet professional team where you are offered possibilities to develop yourself. Your job is varied and you are involved from design to mobilization, in major installation projects of diverse leading (offshore) contractors. We work hard to deliver quality and finish projects in time, but there is also time to have coffee and lunch together and to enjoy fun group activities on a regular basis.

Join our team
TWD is always looking for passionate, technical talents who are excited by the offshore industry and have a degree in a technical field. Are you that communicative team player who is enthusiastic, driven and a quick learner? Then we are looking for you! Besides fulltime jobs we also offer student jobs, internships and graduation possibilities. Please visit www.twd.nl/careers to see our current vacancies.
