Case Study: Hanson UK

Brief

Hanson UK were looking to undertake improvement work at one of their sites at Blackwall. This involved moving an existing concrete batching plant to a different location on the site and preparing it for a new concrete batching plant in the future. To assist them with this, they wanted support form n Engineering Facilities Management firm to coordinate the improvement work whilst simultaneously ensuring the smooth running of the site refurbishment.

Solution

Appointed as principal contractor for the improvement works and having surveyed the site, we undertook a series of tasks to deliver the end goal required by Hanson UK.

With the refurbishment programme spanning 6 months, the first priority was to secure the site perimeter by installing Heras fencing along with approximately 3km of Palisade fencing. We refurbished and replaced gates and barriers as required as well as creating traffic lanes within the site using Amco barrier.

We organised the demolition of a number of redundant site site buildings and structures to allow for the repositioning of an entire concrete batching plant at the opposite of the site. This tricky operation involved supervising and co-ordinating various sub-contractors to allow for the plant to be moved by crane in a confined space. As part of the relocation of the concrete batching plant we manufactured and installed a number of platforms, ramps and guarding handrails. The items manufactured varied in finish, from including galvanised, powder coated and stainless steel. All design solutions took into account Health & Safety requirements and practicality of use.

Post repositioning of the concrete batching plant, further refurbishment work had to be completed before it could be made operational. This consisted of new guarding, pipework and the overhaul of mechanical process equipment. Now that this work is finished, preparation for the installation of the new concrete batching plant is underway. This next phase includes additional mild steel fabrication and on-site installation work.

Outcome

The site improvement was undertaken in a coordinated manner adhering to Health & Safety requirements allowing the plant to remain operational.
