Project Outcome

Project completed two weeks ahead of original schedule

Client satisfaction resulted in Westville being appointed to carry out works on phase 3, which commenced in February 2017.

 

Challenges

Working within an existing operational school brought challenges around scheduling, safeguarding, liaison and noise reduction during the whole of this project.

Inclement weather caused the project to temporarily fall behind due to groundwork becoming affected.

 

Solutions

Working closely with Dallimore School and Derbyshire County Council, Westville was able to create a set of working practices to work around the issues of scheduling, safeguarding and noise reduction.

Pre induction training at the start of the project, focussed heavily on working practices, enabling our team to create a specialised cutting area away from the school. This helped enormously during the arrival and leaving times of the pupils and was significant in the task of reducing noise at lesson times.

 

Client Comments…

Westville have delivered a first class piece of work on time and to budget.
