Retaining wall being built as part of the
Haughton Throughabout project is almost complete with just the
facia stone to put in place which will take two weeks
Hall Construction who are the sub-contractors carrying out the work and have asked if they could start back on site to complete this element of the works.
Once this walling is complete then it opens up a large amount of footway/cycleway work for our own construction teams which would give us a good start when we return to site.
We have requested a full set of RAMS which will be vetted and approved to ensure they will be adhering to the social distancing rules while carrying out this work and we will have a site manager on site at all times to monitor this.
Completing this piece of work now with two men only on site will mean less operatives on site to monitor when construction teams return.
Financial/staffing/health & safety (incl virus transmission risks)/service delivery impacts/other risks and impacts considered:
Programme - Up to two weeks work for two operatives
COVID19 - The works can be progressed under the current guidelines with the necessary systems in place. The footway Is currently closed and fenced off so there can be no contact with the public.
To allow Subcontractor to restart on site w/c
4th May ahead of main project restart to phase recommencement under
supervision of DBC staff. (Subject to satisfactory methods of
working being agreed).
Reason: To enable gradual re-commencement and management of resources on site.
To leave this element of work until site teams
return to work although this would mean an extra two operatives on
