Works underway at Erith

Works are now underway at a large scale distribution centre in London. The works will run until February next year and sees’ EPS take on its single biggest ever contract. The logistical challenge of the job is challenging as there are over 100 pieces of plant and machinery to lift and position and then the associated pipework installation must follow.

Lee Murphy commented “site is now well established and because of our forward planning we have been able to undertake some works before the rest of the contractors appear” as ever with the large scale projects coordination is the key and delivering such a large contract is always challenging but we have started the contract in the right way and we will maintain this momentum all the way through the next 9 months or so. We have good agreements in place with our suppliers and they are already providing us with the flexibility we need to work on this large site.

70 Valve stations have already been made and are ready to ship to site and 20 coolers have been positioned - but the real works now begin in earnest.
