RAF Wyton

Situation

The CIS installation into the Pathfinder Building at RAF Wyton was part of The Programme to Rationalise and Integrate the Defence Intelligence Estate (PRIDE). 

Requirement

The installation required a Construction Design and Management (CDM) Principle in order to fulfil all the responsibilities expected by the HSE from a Principle Contractor (2007 CDM regulations refers).

Solution

Solvings provided the MOD with Site Managers who were all security cleared to a level commensurate with the operational environment (Top Secret), and produced bespoke H&S procedures sympathetic to the installation of the CIS equipment.

Each sub-contractor (CIS Atlas, BT, Lockheed-Martin, Vega, Cable & Wireless and Skanska) was comprehensively briefed and provided with site-specific instructions and advice relating to the construction of, and adherence to, RAMS (Risk Assessments & Method Statements) procedures throughout building occupation.

You will no doubt be pleased to know that we made a safe and operationally very successful transition into Pathfinder for which Solvings deserve a share of the credit… the Programme continues to apply the principles, as set out by Solvings.
