PROJECT: 033PR | TYPE: Groundworks & Electrical | CLIENT: Integral | LOCATION: Verizon, Reading Int' Business Park |

boiler compliance

OVERVIEW:
Belisha beacons had been hit by vehicles on both sides of the pedestrian crossing. Greenway was called in. Works were to supply and fit new, with minimal impact on access.

INVESTIGATION:
The lights and electrics were solar powered and had already been removed by others prior to the commencement of the works. The existing, damaged units were broken out from the ground and tiled areas, and needed to be disposed of. The new units could then be fitted and the ground and tiles reinstated in keeping with the original layout.

CHALLENGES:
1. The materials took longer to source than expected as a direct result of the disruption to supply chains caused by the coronavirus pandemic at the time. 2. Safety was paramount to ensure the protection of public access to the business park at all times.

SERVICES PROVIDED:
Prior to the commencement of works, barriers were placed around the working area to cordon it off, to ensure public safety and uninterrupted road access to office buildings. Working alongside on-site electricians who removed and disconnected the electrics prior to the works, the team completed the removal and replacement of old units, prepared the ground and reinstated the tiles. With the new beacon poles in situ, the new lights and electrics could be installed by others to complete the project.

OUTCOME:
The works were completed to plan and as scheduled. The belisha beacons are now back in service, for the safety of the public using the business park.
