PHASE ONE - OCTOBER 2018
The enabling works for phase one of Whitworth’s Factory Regeneration Project have started with the formation of the contractors compound. This package of work is to form the area for the contractors to use for their staff facilities, offices, drying rooms and toilets.
The contract for this area has been undertaken by South Midlands Plant and has been completed successfully to a very high standard, with them working well around the existing Whitworths site traffic. It has been crucial to co-ordinate all activities with the operational site deliveries to ensure no clashes and no delay to Whitworths day to day activities.
Health and Safety has been paramount for all the construction site actions and it’s clear that the Whitworths Health and Safety Team have worked very well to encompass the requirements of the construction regulations within the on-going site health and safety activities. We are working towards BREEAM accreditation and working within the ‘Considerate Constructors’ scheme which has started the project’s quality requirements.
Crucially it was important to establish good co-ordination and communication between all parties at an early stage, as this will set the standards going forwards for the rest of the Project.
