In 2021 AW Construction were awarded the contract to strip out of 80+ TSB banks across the UK. Having completed previous projects for the same client within the banking sector we were ideally placed to carry out these works with minimal disruption and able to deploy our teams quickly to various sites across the UK.
Having been appointed by the main contractor WATES, we were responsible for several services to ensure the quick strip out of these premises all in line with Wates “Plan Right “ Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality Policy.
- Project Management
- Site Management including Site Set Up at every branch
- Covid Fogging & Sanitisation
- Furniture removal and approved disposal
- Strip out
- Removal of heavy safes using Hiab
- Vinyling and boarding up of windows
- Full site clean
We deployed several teams across the country for the continuous 6 month roll out who travelled with specific tooling requirements to allow for the safe and correct removal of the branch fixtures & fittings. Whilst we were being held to meet a very tight and strict schedule, all staff at AW Construction put in a gigantic effort to see this was successfully achieved, we even completed closures from Lands End to John O’Groats within the same week of the schedule! With some of these works being carried out in the North of Scotland during winter we had to ensure that our drivers understood these risks and had suitable training.
Our fleet of vehicles proved invaluable during this project, including 3 Luton vans, a large HGV and other vehicles seconded from the AW Group fleet.
With these works also being carried out during the latter part of the Covid pandemic we had to make sure we adhered to all Covid rules for safety of operatives, visitors, and banking staff. This included fogging of premises, wearing of face masks, sanitising areas of work and tools.
AW Construction were able to meet all set targets in relation to waste disposal. With ZERO waste sent to landfill and a huge 95% of all materials recycled, we were able to finish this project with a positive outcome regarding our environmental footprint.
