Social Hub for Operatives

At this current time, the project management team felt that it was crucial for people to feel that a construction site is both a safe and welcoming space. To help achieve this the project erected a marquee.

This structure, complete with artificial grass floor and chill out area, with comfortable furniture and plants, provides a social hub for the site. It also includes a separate quiet space. More inviting than a traditional site canteen or meeting room, it is a space in which social distancing can be easily maintained.

It is a multi-purpose space that is used for inductions, toolbox talks, briefings, safety and environmental displays and meetings, or simply by those operatives seeking a quiet break. The marquee is also open outside normal working hours for those working away from home.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
