Construction sites are busy places with workers constantly on-the-go, often carrying out strenuous jobs in all weathers. It is crucial that every construction site in East London has a sheltered space for workers. This is not just for overall well being but also to adhere to health and safety regulations. Apart from the specific focus of the site, the building in progress, the area must be safe and cater to staff needs. There should be facilities available where workers can relax and take refreshments for short periods. There are a number of other reasons that a Mobile Welfare Unit is an essential feature on-site.
One of the main reasons for hiring a welfare unit for your construction site is to provide somewhere to rest and recharge batteries after hard work. People who work on construction sites have some of the toughest, most tiring jobs around. These units offer a place to recover temporarily, they are also a great way to get protection from the weather.
Lunch breaks are an important part of the working day, especially when the work is physically demanding. A spot of lunch and a cuppa will keep the workforce fresh and able to get more done without flagging. Welfare units usually come in a choice of sizes and specifications, they can contain office space, canteens, wash areas and toilets. Microwaves, kettles and charging points for devices are also normal features. These functions make working long hours a little more comfortable.
One of the keys to managing a construction team is making sure that normal physical needs are taken care of. This means clean and convenient toilet facilities, avoiding the need to go on the hunt. If this is an issue there’s less chance of people being able to concentrate on the task in hand.
Welfare Units from leading manufacturers Boss Cabins, are available from Rhinos in a number of sizes and configurations. Many find it extremely useful to have a purpose built mobile office, for the numerous administrative tasks needed at a job site. This can range from the usual paperwork required to meetings between designers, project managers, team leaders etc. Having an enclosed area away from the noisy site activity is ideal for overseeing the work, and monitoring progress. This is exceptionally helpful as most construction sites are in particularly remote areas, away from office space.
Of course another reason these welfare units are a good idea is their safe storage aspect. All involved including workers and managers will benefit from somewhere secure to store their belongings. From your lunch to your state of the art iPhone, welfare cabins offer the ultimate in on-site security.
These welfare units are becoming a desirable feature of building sites in many parts of East London, due to the amount of planned projects. Just two that will provide significant transformations include Tower Hamlets and Barking and Dagenham. Tower Hamlets encompasses areas with luxurious apartments like those in Canary Wharf along with converted Victorian warehouses. There are also great possibilities for ex-council properties in Shadwell and Bow. The elegantly named ‘Silk District’ in Whitechapel, is one of the largest of the East London developments. It will comprise of 620 units, and to the east of Canary Wharf a development known as Wood Wharf will provide an additional 2 million sq ft of office space. The expansion will result in a projected increase in the daily working population of Canary Wharf from 120,000 today to 200,000 in the coming decade.
Barking & Dagenham also has regeneration ambitions in the next few years, 50,000 homes are to be built in the area, and 20,000 new jobs are on the menu. The development will take place on the 400 hectares of land earmarked for the project. Demolition has already started around the Gascoigne Estate, providing space for 201 new homes. This will be a sustainable living area for sure as electric car charging points, and bicycle parking are included.
