For the duration of the project, the site has established a site compound, welfare area and site offices on Endeavour Wharf within the tourist centre of Whitby.

The compound’s power supply is a mains connection of approximate 56kVA capacity which provides a stable, reliable supply of energy and has the added benefit of reducing noise and carbon emissions compared to a regular site generator.

It would normally be disconnected on completion, and a cost would be incurred by this disconnection. However, the contractor has proposed to the client that they take over the power supply and have offered an outline design for electric vehicle charging points and outdoor power sockets for events (such as the Christmas Market for which temporary generated power would have to be provided).

This would provide the following benefits:

  • The contractor avoids the cost of disconnection
  • The client gain an additional asset/benefit via a potential revenue stream.
  • Reduced carbon emissions/improved air quality/reduced noise pollution from: public electric/hybrid vehicle charging points, avoidance of portable generators for events such as the Christmas Market and other festivals on Endeavour Wharf.
