Albion Street, Broadstairs, Kent, Phase 1
CLIENT: SGN MAJOR WORKS TIER 2
SECTOR: GAS DISTRIBUTION
WORK PERIOD: 8 WEEKS – JANUARY 2019
With extensive expertise throughout our management and core team of providing live gas mains and service replacement, repair and re-instatement work, we offered the client a cost-effective time crucial solution of replacement and repair of the high street gas services by fully qualified personnel, which aimed at causing the minimum amount of disruption to the local community and the wider populous of visitors to the area.
By demonstrating a proven ability to complete complicated works programs to budget and within expected time frames, 360 Civil Engineering were selected for the task.
At the forefront of our company ethos is ensuring that all personnel involved in our projects are suitably trained and competent to carry out the tasks set out by our client and industry requirements. In order to fully facilitate and encourage continual growth amongst our teams, 360 Civil Engineering set up a program of auditing to ensure compliance at all stages with training and coaching sessions delivered on-site and externally when the requirements were identified.
Taking the greatest care and precision at every stage of the process, we coordinated closely with the our client SGN to ensure that the project was achievable, the Local Authority so that disruption to the local transport system was kept to a minimum, especially during peak times, and Local Chamber of Commerce to plan for and monitor the impact on local business sustainability. Throughout the project, 360 Civil Engineering, identified multiple sites of unchartered mains that required further investigation and careful planning to avoid incident and enable the new pipework to integrate in to the existing network. Due to the continued communication between all concerned parties, the project was delivered one week ahead of schedule, at a hugely reduced budget and generated a variety of positive communications from local businesses and private tenants.
Throughout the project Health and Safety was of upmost importance due to the locality of works and added concerns of elevated numbers of members of the public, often not residents of the local area. There were no reported incidents of injury, ill health or environmental damage caused as a result of our works being completed.
RAF Weeton, Lancashire
CLIENT: MINISTRY OF DEFENCE
SECTOR: SITE WORKS – GAS AND GROUNDWORKS
WORK PERIOD: 6 MONTHS – JANUARY 2018
As a young entity 360 Group of Companies tendered to works on the MOD site at RAF Weeton working with Carilion and Amey. The project was to prepare and install new gas mains and services to properties on the site, divert existing mains to allow for groundworks and concrete bases and to install medium pressure kiosks to supply the new network.
Initially we were required to submit all personal documentation to enable security clearance to be granted to site and attend various safety and security briefings due to the military personnel and equipment.
During the project we had to continue with safety standdowns and drills inline with site requirements and to protect our workforce from harm which included for aircraft take off, drills and landings.
As one of our first jobs we ensured that every safety concern and engineering possibility had been carefully planned and coordinated with the military personnel and local gas transporter.
Throughout the project we maintained close communications with Carilion and Amey to deliver a consistent level of workmanship and safety whilst working on a high-profile joint venture working on medium pressure live gas equipment.
Although the site and work scope was of a challenging nature we set a clear achievable plan in motion that allowed us to work at a safe pace minimising the risk to all MOD personnel and contractors affected by our works which finally resulted in the project being delivered 3 weeks ahead of schedule. The client representatives commended us on the safe delivery of all aspects of our works and professionalism whilst on site.
St Heliers Hospital
SECTOR: SURFACING AND GROUNDWORKS
WORK PERIOD: 6 WEEKS – MARCH 2020
With the government and health services under increasing pressure to provide safety to their staff and general population considering COVID-19, we continued our job to make the car park and underground services safe for the coming generations.
Although the job was previously planned in prior to the outbreak there was a distinct possibility of the works being cancelled. 360 Group of Companies had been monitoring the evolving situation and had already implemented a full range of COVID PPE and Risk Assessments.
Once the NHS site management had verified our equipment and plan the works were scheduled in for a 6-week period.
After meticulously planning the works and further planning the extra safety precautions to protect our teams and the countries front line staff in one of the local epicentres for COVID-19.
Throughout the project 360 identified multiple areas that required attention including barrier systems, kerb work and bollards that through open dialogue managed to rectify during the project around the initial scope of drainage, groundworks and surfacing.
With continual communication and determination from our teams we delivered the whole project including extra items above in 3 weeks and handed back a safe and secure site to the NHS workers and members of the public for years to come.
At 360 we pride ourselves on the ability to think and plan safely outside of the box and maintain the health and safety of all concerned, especially when dealing with a changing global pandemic. We are happy to confirm that there were no reported cases of exposure to any personnel during the project.
Rich Borough Power Station, Kent
WORK PERIOD: 3 DAYS – AUGUST 2020
360 Group of Companies were requested to assist with the installation of hard standing access areas and roadways on the Rich Borough Power Station Site in Kent due to a last-minute change of contractor.
We were requested to carry out a full construction of the area giving access to power sub-stations which required the preparation of the ground, 400t base & binder course and 100t of SMA surface course over a 3-day period to accommodate small vehicles and HGVs on site.
Our specialist surfacing division planned and scheduled deliveries in line with the client requirements and agreed access with the site owners.
Due to the meticulous planning from our surfacing division and determination of our machine lay team the project was a total success.
Once again due to the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the high-risk nature of the site our management and safety departments took on the challenge to fully prepare and guide our teams from planning to completion. With site specific risk assessments and government required PPE available our management and teams maintained the safety of all personnel who had access to the site.
The level of workmanship, quality of materials and equipment used were required to be of a high standard due to the high-risk nature of the site and heavy vehicle access it was to be used for. The time frames of planning to completion were minimal but thanks to the determination and drive of our teams the project was delivered on time and on budget.
