A guide for preparing a construction site for a new project

Before you can break ground on a new project, there are a number of stages of preparation that you need to go through. One is to prepare the construction site for your new project. Getting these steps right is essential for site safety, the safety of your construction workers and any visitors you might get to your site and even the smooth running of your project. 

Whilst every site, and every project will have its differences, here is our checklist of the things you will need to prepare the construction site of any new project. 

Prepare the site

One of the first things that you will need to do before you can begin to prepare for construction work is to prepare and secure the site. This means making sure that the site is safe to work on and that it is secured to make sure that members of the public cannot access the site. Keeping others off your construction site is equally as important as ensuring that this is a safe place for your construction team. A well-signposted site entrance and perimeter fencing will make it possible to keep track of who is on-site at all times. 

Site cabins

You will need to arrange for the hire of site cabins for the duration of your project. The size of your site and also your workforce will determine the types of site cabins and the number that you will need. Many larger construction sites prefer to have a small administration team on site because this can help to speed up some of the routine day-to-day tasks like ordering more supplies and dealing with issues. Therefore, you may want a site cabin that can be used as an office space. You will also need to think about welfare units where your construction workers will be able to take their breaks and have a hot drink and some food. It is also worth thinking about the addition of a drying room where safety garments can be dried overnight.

You will, of course, need to consider the provision of construction toilet hire for your site. Depending on your requirements, there is a range of different toilet facilities that you can hire for your site, but you should ensure that whatever you do hire is HSE compliant. 

You may also want to consider a site cabin that has space to store some of the smaller tools that will be used on your site. This will give you a place to lock them up securely overnight and will mean that they do not need to be taken off-site. 

Tools and machinery 

The final thing to prepare before you can begin work on your project is, of course, arranging for the hire of any tools and machinery that you might require for your construction and arranging for it to be delivered to the site. You will need to ensure that there is a secure place on site to store this for the duration of the construction.
