Key Objectives/Challenges

  • The surrounding site location was a sensitive one, housing a funeral directors and children’s hospice. Regular meetings were held to ensure minimal disruption to both parties respecting both environments.
  • The team created a robust logistics plan before starting on site to ensure the busy access road and tight site did not hinder the progression of the project.
