The Challenges

Due to our works being in a live harbour at Whitehead, we had to be phased and we provided regular programme updates to the local rowing club and harbour master.

At Gleno Village we worked adjacent to a cliff face with a 200ft drop into a waterfall so all works were delivered using fall restraint systems and permit to work.

At Glynn Village, we phased and programmed our works during the summer school holidays so that there was less interference with the local school pick up and drop off. When working during school times, we stopped work between 8.30AM and 9.15AM to allow school drop off to be safely carried out
