Attention to Detail: Site Entrance

Careful consideration should be given to how your project may impact the surrounding community.

It is vital to maintain an excellent external appearance of your site, to ensure a positive first impression is provided to the local residents.

Attention to detail is important to not only present a good first impression but also to ensure neither the workforce or local residents are negatively impacted by the construction work taking place.

One site had a combination of the following at the site entrance:

  •  A well-designed entrance, sightlines, mirrors on each side of the entrance hoardings, PIR operated audible warning when vehicles leave the site;
  • This was supplemented by flashing lights on either side of the entrance (which was beneficial for pedestrians and cyclists using the cycle lane) and speed bumps on the exit placed so that vehicles had to ‘crawl’ out of the site entrance.
This innovation was achieved on a 25 week project, with the value of approximately £3.5M.
