How to keep your business going during cold snaps

Cold weather in the UK is something we never are prepared for. Although we are on a parallel with Moscow where the Moskva river still freezes over (we forget the Thames used to do that up to the early 1800’s) and whilst we have a more temperate climate driven by the North Atlantic Drift weather stream, if our weather turns for the worst we do suffer as a country. The UK is genuinely not prepared for extreme cold snaps during winter. When these do occur we need to ensure that our workplaces are comfortable for working in. This includes offices,…

Heating a Construction Site

Winter is scheduled to end on 20th March 2019; however, this winter seems to be fundamentally different to previous winters experienced in the UK. Where is the snow? Where is the month long cold weather? Where is the ice? Where is the winter we know? Where is the need for heating? Do not get lulled in by this false sense of winter never coming, it has arrived. As we sit inside an office, we don’t completely understand the difficult conditions on project sites where heating is required.

Recovery from Snow and Flood Building Contingency

The country is tired of the clichés which accompanied the recent batch of weather. Wanting to move on and get on with going to work and our lives without the stigma attached that a little snow crippled the UK. That said some locations in the UK did experience the worst snowfall for a couple of decades.

Christmas On-Site

Christmas on-site can be a joyous occasion. It can also be tough and torrid. There are two schools of thought when it comes to opening a site. Some sites will close for a few days, whereas others will stay closed for over a week and work will recommence in the New Year. The main reason for sites to be closed are the poor weather and difficulties with the delivery and collection of equipment – as a side-note, PAL Hire’s off-hire date is 7th December. A few things need to be done before a site is closed over Christmas to ensure…
