Clark & Kent have undertaken several projects for the Access Sport charity over several years. Access Sport worked with Harrow Council to procure a new pump track and two-person BMX training straights with a start gate. We were invited to bid for the project in 2019. Harrow Council place a big emphasis on health and safety, and Clark & Kent were chosen for three main reasons:
1. Three external National Health and safety accreditations from CHAS, Constructionline and Acclaim.
2. No notifiable incidents in our health and safety record.
3. The robustness of our core contract health and safety paperwork.
The ground was broken in spring 2020 with limited scope due to the coronavirus pandemic. Clark & Kent agreed to no uplifted costs and restarted work four weeks after the lockdown period with all provisional measures in place.
Initial consultation and a fully bespoke design package for funding and planning were provided by Clark & Kent in-house, minimising downtime and shortening lead times. The 10-week programme included several constraints such as working next to a railway line, working around trees, restricted and sensitive access with vehicles entering the site on a public open space footpath.
Relevant traffic management was used along with the correct PPI (People Plant Interface), and the project was completed on time, schedule and within budget to the original contract sum.
The scope of design works included:
The construction stage included:
Client expectations are surpassed, and they have since engaged us on similar projects. Take a look at our video to see the Harrow pump track project under construction.
