Alternative working methods should be used to increase productivity and also reduce community impact.

Innovative working practices can not only provide solutions for more productive working but also ways to reduce disruption.

The examples below show how one site demonstrated this:

  • The project represented a unique construction challenge where the client advised at tender stage that a strategy must be developed to construct the building without the use of tower cranes;
  • This strategy was required due to the difficult location of the site on a major London artery, to minimise the impact on traffic flow and neighbours when lifting in excess of 800 structural glazing units for the facade;
  • The site has designed a bespoke monorail system to offload, traverse and raise these panels and allow them to be fixed into place with minimal disruption.

To see more details on this system, see the link below.
