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.

This is normally to facilitate resource deficiency and to ensure that deadlines are adhered to. It could be just an act of Taylorism to optimise and simplify tasks on a project to achieve a wider goal. Perhaps subbing in crews of specialists to get a project over a phase.
