Due to the location of the site, there were limitations and access restrictions that had to be considered during the planning phase and navigated through when delivering the propping equipment. The site is adjacent to a national school, so deliveries were not permitted between certain times in the morning and the afternoon. It is also on a one-way street which restricts access and meant no artic vehicles are allowed on site, only rigid vehicles.
A change to the construction sequencing was causing a clash between props and the transfer beam beneath the UKPN substation building so the propping design needed adapting.
A high loading section on the east side of the site required increased support.
Early in the project, it was established that the tower cranes needed to be erected as early as possible to provide cranage during the excavation phase so crane lifting operations could continue once the crawler/mobile cranes were no longer able to be used.
