Wilmott Dixon releases photos showing how sites have adapted to ‘new normal’

WITH over 95% of its English projects still operating, Wilmott Dixon has released a series of photographs illustrating how its sites are operating during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The firm said that, by using a combination of technology and new practices to maintain social distances, they have adapted to the ‘new normal’.

Examples of some of Wilmott Dixon’s adaptions are as follows:

  • Extra-space for welfare facilities, such as hiring large marquees.
  • One-way systems for circulation, especially around bottleneck areas.
  • Toolbox-talks to communicate latest guidance and working practices; held in open areas, allowing for maintenance of the two-metre rule.
  • GoPro technology to film progress, which is uploaded to Microsoft Teams to show latest developments, pause and ask questions.
  • Motion activated voiceover systems to remind people to abide by social distancing on site.
  • Hand sanitiser is available in meeting rooms, desks, and site entrances and exits, with dedicated hand wash zones.
  • Staggered breaks and lunch times, with clear signage for social distancing in canteens.
