Site Surveys to Assess Site Access

Although we have described elsewhere the problems caused by city centres, the same also applies to site access. Particularly with abnormal loads, on a restricted site, it is not a forgone conclusion that the vehicle will be able to manoeuvre “under crane hook”.

Site Surveys for Larger Cranes

Some of the larger cranes, particularly once the outriggers have been deployed, occupy an inordinate amount of space. The combination of a crane, adjacent buildings and other obstructions, necessitates a site survey – with all related parties being in attendance.

Case Study: Singapore Tourism Board – Site Access through Ornamental Gardens

At the other end of the spectrum, a site survey may be needed for completely different reasons – as happened on a delivery to alongside the Thames, on the South Bank. The task was to deliver, position and erect promotion material for the Singapore Tourist Board. There was no room for cranes and, just to make matters more difficult, access was only through ornamental gardens. Needless to say, STG rose to the challenge – some weeks later reversing the process, when the display ended.

Whether it is a narrow main gate, the route within the site or a low access/entry door – everything needs to be taken into consideration. This is particularly the case where production needs to be maintained, minimising the risk of disruption whilst delivery takes place.
