Royal Albert Dock Project
RVT Group was delighted to attend the prestigious Multiplex Royal Dock project, in the London Borough of Newham, and showcase our range of equipment that helps protect the health of site workers.
This exciting project began in 2017 and is due for completion, in its entirety, by 2026. A huge development that covers terrain the size of 35 football pitches, it will become home to a new business district, shops, cafes, apartments, as well as opening up the dockside promenade. It is predicted to be London's third business and financial district, after the City of London and Canary Wharf.
As being located close to London City Airport, the Royal Albert Docks and the Docklands Light Railway, there are understandably many health hazards to take into consideration when undertaking the considerable work involved.
From the project's initial excavation right through to build completion, dust, noise and fumes must be tightly managed to avoid harming the health of site workers and the general public nearby.
Our Northern Sales Representative, Vern Harrington, who attended the site commented:
"It was an excellent visit to the impressive Multiplex Royal Albert Dock project where extensive work of phase one of this fantastic redevelopment scheme is well underway.
We are always enthused to raise awareness about the very real health risks of long-term exposure to the hazards of dust, fumes and noise that are commonplace on construction sites.
With a wealth of knowledge in this field, our mission is to advise contractors on best practices to help manage and reduce these hazards, and by doing so, play an important role in minimising the potential impact they can have on the lives of workers, their families, and those nearby."
