In an exciting and challenging project set over a 10 day timeframe, Soils and Stone were instructed to remove over 4,000 tonnes of bricks and concrete from a magistrates’ court in central London.
To meet the compliance needs of our client and ensure the success of the project, three key parameters needed to be met. First, our fleet should have FORS Gold certification and would therefore provide best practice in terms of safety, efficiency and care for the environment. Secondly, all transport required accreditation and membership of the Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) scheme. Finally, due to the highly congested nature of the site, all transport movements needed to adhere to a strict site traffic management plan.
“With a short timeframe of just under two weeks, and over 4,000 tonnes to remove, adherence to timed schedules was critical. We had to make sure we were efficient and time-conscious to avoid heavy congestion and rush-hour delays. Not only did we have to consider city centre traffic, but we also had to adhere to the traffic management plan of the site. However, with a strategy and robust schedule in place, we met the deadline and achieved success for our client.” – Ozzy Cecil MD at Soils and Stone.
With our hard breakout muckaway service complete, the area is now safe and ready for the next phase of construction.
