The below are based on the collective experience of the team we have here at Dynamic Group and are all multi-million pound projects.
All the safety critical staff provided, showed up, were on time and customer focused. With the project nearing an end, we are still supplying safety critical staff into the 3rd year of the project and have been supplying week in and week out with midweek staffing numbers peaking at more than 80 staff with Christmas 2017 seeing over 150 staff on site for a 10-day Christmas blockade.
No issues were reported other than those that were not dealt with at the time, on site by the Dynamic Group Labour Resource team. We have an excellent working relationship, exceeding expectations with the service we are delivering.
The Dynamic Group are highly thought of on Crossrail Anglia in terms of the safety critical support we have provided on the project and the after-service communication with back room staff, helping to keep the whole process as smooth as possible.
Experience on this project involved the allocating of 300 + Rail & Civil staff midweek days/nights, ramping up to more than 500+ staff on an average weekend. Works ran from Willesden Junction through to Stratford and included the installation of new signaling systems, Track Renewal, 30 Platform extensions along with Station Upgrades, to allow fourcar trains to run on the London Overground network and accommodate increased passenger numbers.
Manning all labour requirements under NWR stringent guide lines and successfully delivering its 14 Day Christmas blockade capturing key milestones that contributed directly to the projects complication on time and to budget, zero no shows, zero accidents
Project length: 2 years 6 months
This was a partnership from day 1 of the contract. Worksite numbers ramped up very quickly and levels were at 70/80 staff on site. With staff levels peaking at 120 + on site for nearly a 2 year period.
All contractors’ eligibility to work documents had to be supplied to the client along with any representative qualifications and applicable skills cards (e.g CSCS cards). This all had to be 100% to be able to get the contractor passed to work on site. Application forms had to be completed for every worker and records maintained for their duration on site including working hours, pay, days off, etc. Labour Supplied included Electricians, Electricians Mates, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinkler Fitters, Carpenters and Labourers. The scale and security involved on this project meant we had an Account Manager on site every Monday morning at 0500 for the duration of the project to deal face to face with any contractor issues and to ensure we worked closely with the client to pre-empt any fluctuations in manpower in line with the works programme. This project was secured and ring fenced based on the quality of the service provided from the outset with it never wavering until the last member of staff had left site.
Works programme was to refurbish, paint and carry out minor civils works on multiple stations at any one time from Stratford to Shenfield, up to Cambridge and Ely and also up to Kings Lynn and out to Great Yarmouth. Teams consisted of a COSS, Handyman and up to 3/4 NVQ Level painters full time on days for the duration of the project. Manpower was consistent at around 70 staff per day and peaked at close to 100 staff on site. Due to the sheer scope of works and geographical coverage, we had 2 roaming staff out weekly checking in with all the Site Managers dealing with any issues first hand as and when they arose and collecting timesheets to ensure everyone was paid on time each week. Paying this many staff on time on a project of this scale was of the utmost importance to avoid any downtime or lack of focus on the actual project itself. Excellent record of on time payments was achieved to keep the site managers, the client and their client pleased with the site progress. This was a difficult account to manage but with planning and constant client interface on site the project was delivered on time, meeting all the client`s expectations.
Works programme was to shot blast and paint Chelsea Bridge, one span at a time whilst encapsulated underneath the bridge. As a result of the performance on the Essex and Anglia station upgrade, a natural progression was to be awarded this project, the end client being Kier. Works ramped up quickly maintaining upwards of 45 Painters and 10 – 15 labourers on site at varying and unsociable hours. A particular challenge was that all staff needed to be PTS and CSCS card holders. The success of this project was again due to the account management which included weekly site visits and the simple things such as taking all client and contractor calls so that nothing was missed and was dealt with as it happened. Client very happy with the result and they have now been a client for almost 10 years.
