Challenges Overcome

This project had complex health and safety risks which were managed throughout the programme of works. The site was within a small area with other contractors on site completing works to the development. Deliveries were programmed in coordination with other contractors on site to reduce conflict and disruption of works. Some areas of site had large excavations which needed to be worked in consideration of. There were also overhead works on hoists and cradles being carried out to complete the building works.
