BWS Innovation & Added Value
BWS worked closely with Ayre Chamberlain Guant to develop a coherent maintenance access strategy eliminating the majority of fall restraint systems within the initial design. We also provided advice on site elements such as structural stability of existing retaining walls and enabling works in association with party wall agreements.
In addition, we assisted the principal contractor to develop a suitable Construction Phase Plan, together with economic means to provide welfare accommodation where the only available room was the rear garden.
BWS monitored the construction works during construction process.
