This chapter is primarily concerned with the specifying of the large structural timbers used in the construction of jetties, wharves and similar structures, and of their associated labours. Civil engineering jobs do, on occasion, contain subsidiary items of timberwork, such as scumboards on sewage disposal works, wooden steps and footbridges. Some contracts include a small amount of building work, such as pumping stations which can incorporate a number of joinery items like windows and doors.
