The Warner Stand Project was the first time that GCL have worked with BAM but despite this was a very strong alignment of company values in relation to the management of Health Safety and Environmental issues.
The Warner Stand site is small and surrounded on all sides by the MCC and their neighbours. The only access is shared with the MCC and visitors to Lords. Safely managing the muck away process from the basement excavation and then the RC frame concrete work required a high degree of coordination and cooperation. Vehicle banksmen were deployed at the MCC entrance to manage traffic to and from site. The interface with the Client and the public at this crucial access point was managed in an assured and professional manor with the possible exception of asking the arriving the England Cricket Team if they were the new labourers.
The GCL site team were proactive in identifying the requirements of upcoming works and ensuring that the correct systems, plant and equipment were in place.
A seemingly endless supply of new plant was always available and tailored to the site requirements. If any safety issues were identified at any stage by BAM management a brief discussion was all that was required for it to be comprehensively addressed.
Phase 1 of the Warner Stand was delivered for use by the MCC in time for the First test against Pakistan in July 2016.
