Adapting Construction Site Working Practices Throughout The Pandemic

Every company has its own, unique working practises that mean that work can get done efficiently. At Springfield we have always worked to comprehensive health and safety guidelines laid out by the Construction Leadership Council. But when the first national lockdown came into motion, we had to seriously consider how we would function.

In this article, we explore the positives of offsite modular construction for our clients.


How Does Offsite Construction Work?

Offsite construction refers to building processes that are implemented away from building sites in company production facilities to ensure high quality prefabricated components are made.  

A significant benefit to utilising modern methods of offsite modular construction is that major parts of a project can be delivered offsite. This significantly reduces the potential for disruption to sensitive client sites.


How Does Offsite Construction Help To Provide Safer Working Environments For Staff And Clients Alike?

All of our projects have a dedicated point of contact who works closely with the client to ensure that minimal disruption is caused and that safety distancing guidelines are followed, whether that’s in the healthcare, education or any other sector.

Besides the benefits of weatherproofing, cost savings and streamlined manufacturing processes, there are a variety of alternative reasons why off-site construction is a great concept. These include:

  • Safety
  • Sustainability
  • Predictability and quality guarantee
  • Less disruption

Modular construction allows us to create a highly controlled environment at our St Helens-based factory where health and safety can be monitored closely. It also enables complete quality management and a significantly reduced turnaround time for clients.

A brilliant, recent example of our work is Park Lane Primary School’s two new modular classrooms. Park Lane needed additional classroom space with special facilities to enhance the comfort and additional care required for children at the SEN status school.  A key part of this project was that they needed to minimise on-site disruption and required a manufacturer capable of demonstrating exceptional standards in this important consideration – which luckily Springfield could help with!

Ultimately, our offsite construction methods mean that we are able to be more detailed in the construction of our expansive range of buildings, to meet the ever-evolving needs of our clients. With over 40 years of experience in the industry, we provide a truly unrivalled service.
