REDBRIDGE LEISURE CENTRE
Project: Artificial Grass Pitch Resurfacing
Client: Redbridge Leisure Centre
Services provided: CDM Services
Contract Value: Undisclosed
Redbridge Leisure Centre had secured funding from Sport England and England Hockey to replace their ageing sand filled football pitches. Repairs were carried out to the existing shock pad and a new blue sand dressed carpet was installed.
The particular challenge faced by the Daniel Connal Partnership providing CDM services on this project was maintaining safe access for the public to the Leisure Centre whilst the work on the pitches was taking place. Situated to the rear of the Leisure Centre the only access route for contractors to the pitches was via the main car park and part pedestrianised route. Safety considerations were therefore of paramount importance.
The CDM team at Daniel Connal Partnership, have wide ranging knowledge in Health & Safety/Fire Safety & Risk Management. Our early appointment ensured expert input at the outset of the project. Pre-contract meetings with the client allowed discussion on the necessary site restrictions and resulted in agreement on how difficulties could be overcome for both the Client and the Principal Contractor.
Good CDM provision is not simply about paperwork but achieving practical solutions for all parties. In the case of this project, the proposals put in place by Daniel Connal Partnership ensured that safe access and egress for both the contractor and users of the Centre was maintained throughout the project to the benefit of all concerned.
