Solutions to challenges
It was a logistically challenging project, as it was on a busy street with heavy footfall and a lot of on-street businesses. Actavo worked closely with businesses and emergency services to ensure works caused minimum impact, including organising project deliveries off peak, and ensuring surrounding businesses received deliveries on time and without disruption.The project was performed during the Covid-19 pandemic. This led to managing additional health and safety requirements for working during a pandemic.
