Blossom Street: Easter Bank Holiday Weekend working hours

This weekend we will be installing a new tower crane on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th April 2021. This is a significant logistical operation, and we have been directed by the local authority that these works should take place outside of usual working hours.

The operation will require deliveries via Shoreditch High Street and installation of the Tower Crane over both Saturday and Sunday. The site will be closed Good Friday and Easter Monday.

We have outlined the programme of works below:

• Good Friday – Site closed
• Easter Saturday – Site open 7am-4pm with reduced activities. Works will include a new hoist being installed. The Skanska manager in attendance will be David Romaine, who can be contacted on 07896650048
• Easer Sunday – Site open 8am-4pm. Works will include a new Tower Crane installation in Blossom Courtyard and deliveries via Shoreditch High Street. The Skanska manager in attendance will be David Reed who can be contacted on 07753830056
• Easter Monday – Site closed

Following Government guidance on social distancing both at work and when travelling to and from work, we need to stagger the daily working shifts so as not to compromise social distancing for those traveling to site by public transport. Additionally, this is crucial to maintaining social distancing within our communal site welfare facilities at the start and end of each shift. There will also be a reduction in personnel on site during these works to clear the site of people not involved in the operation and to allow clear lifts onto transport lorries.

We have put in place a number of mitigations to minimise the impact to immediate neighbours where possible, including switching off reversing alarms, maintaining noise monitoring and using localised acoustic screening around plant where needed.

We will endeavour to complete the above works in advance of the times given above if possible. Thank you for your cooperation and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.
