Energetics Design and Build are thrilled to have been part of the Claish Farm development near Calander. The design and construction of the 50 affordable homes for the Rural Stirling Housing Association development and all involved in it achieved Silver in the Lovell National Health & Safety Awards.
Energetics worked closely with the Claish Farm site manager, keeping him informed as works progressed. We kept all the Energetics method statements and RAMS up-to-date each time we attended the site to carry out scheduled works and ensured the calibration of all plant and machinery was in date. To keep disruption to residents, the leisure centre & the secondary school to a minimum, Energetics worked closely and in partnership with the site’s groundworks contractor for the off-site works, sharing one set of traffic management.
Lovell’s safety awards are intended to promote good health and safety on their construction sites. Claish Farm was the only Scottish winner and to be awarded Silver is an incredible achievement. The development beat off competition from six other Lovell regions across the UK!
The Claish Farm site, as a whole, gained praise for:
- COVID-19 secure arrangements with automated audible reminders employed.
- Excellent site set-up
- Early installation of roads and sewers allowing one-way traffic
- Efficient delivery routes
- Use of paved routes positioned to the rear of buildings to optimise segregation.
- High level of communication between all parties leading to a collaborative culture.
- Site presentation welcomed by neighbouring businesses.
- High standards of internal and external housekeeping maintained on the site, with noticeable workforce buy-in.
Kevin McColgan, Regional Managing Director Scotland for Lovell, said: “Safety is always the number one priority on our sites and even more so during the pandemic. That is why the Lovell National Health & Safety Awards are taken very seriously by all of our sites and this year saw seven sites vying to win.”
