Site Fire Safety Management

We support clients to develop robust fire safety plans, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone working and visiting site. Safety routes are effectively signed, emergency exits are inspected and maintained and alarms routinely tested. Firefighting equipment is provided, installed, and maintained. Our Fire Marshals focus on identifying and mitigating risks and produce routine status reports.

Site Traffic Management & Delivery Coordination

Effective traffic management is vital to prevent accidents and congestion on the roads, plus the safe and efficient flow of personnel, vehicles, and materials on site. Every construction site has a unique layout with different access points; bespoke requirements and tasks; different users and a variety of machinery – All are evaluated and incorporated into our traffic management plans.

Traffic management and the coordination of material deliveries is a critical activity on every site and effective planning and communication is essential. Our traffic management teams are highly trained and follow strict compliance procedures to ensure this is done safely and effectively. To achieve this, our teams utilise an online traffic management booking system, to ensure deliveries are well coordinated and the project team is kept up-to-date with logistics plans and real time delivery information.

Site Welfare, Cleaning and Catering

Looking after people’s welfare on-site is of paramount importance. We believe that feeling safe, comfortable and working in a clean and well kept environment is a prerequisite and improves productively, motivation and projects a professional image to visitors and members of the public.

We supply, install, and maintain staff accommodation blocks, canteens, washrooms, changing and drying areas, and communal areas. This includes regular cleaning, builders clean and deep cleaning.

Our teams also provide full catering services and focus on delivering high quality nutritious menus to cater for all dietary requirements.

We appreciate the role we play in the effective management of construction waste is a pivotal one and our teams are proud of the extensive number of site awards they have received.

Our team will implement several waste management initiatives and processes to help sites to reduce their production of waste and disposal costs, together with KPI’s to track performance and reward our employees for initiatives that deliver results.
