Best Practice

Tudorharp implementing notice boards across each floor are now installed, with live details for operatives to refer to, together with vibration noise and data capturing PPE/RPE requirements. We also now have a BG plasterboard skip for recycling of plasterboard, as well as cutting stations.

Bone Discovery

Whilst undertaking the drainage works to the eastern elevation of the project, works stopped as the banksman noticed what appeared to be human remains during the excavation works. The police were contacted, which then became a police investigation involving CSI to investigate the findings. All excavation works were ceased until the results come back as none human. A very interesting discovery and excellent spot by the banksman.
