Anti-vandal site compound

Our client, a major UK Housebuilder, required a site compound made up of separate anti-vandal (AV) units, finished in corporate livery, to house their welfare and storage facilities on site.

Client:  Major UK housebuilder

Location:  Wiltshire

Key issues:

  • Close to a railway line
  • Weight limit on nearby route
  • Possible bridge height restriction

Our Client, a major housebuilder, enquired about purchasing an anti-vandal building consisting of five separate units that would provide them with canteen, WC and office facilities on site.  They also required additional storage units to be placed at several locations.

Following initial discussions, it became apparent that there might be access restrictions to the site. We responded to this by conducting a site survey to assess the potential delivery routes. This was carried out by an Advanté Appointed Person (AP).

One route included a height restriction under a bridge and the other route had a weight limit.

Our AP surveyed the bridge height and confirmed that our lorry loader crane would be able to travel underneath the bridge and access the site. The nearby Great Western Railway and overhead power lines also had to be taken into consideration.

Our AP prepared drawings and RAMS (risk assessments and method statement) that were later sent to the client. The planned installation also included lifting operations.

Our team supplied the five individual units in line with the client’s specific requirements and in their group’s corporate livery.

The delivery was approved by the ESDAL (Electronic Service Delivery for Abnormal Loads) and carried out by two lorry loader crane operators. After the units were unloaded and double-stacked, our team lined the linkways.

The installation process was a success and completed in just two days, in line with our client’s build programme. The lorry loaders cranes were also required to assist with re-positioning storage containers around the site on the third day.
