Challenge

Poppleton were awarded the contract to provide ventilation ductwork within the Plantrooms for this hospital. One of the challenges faced was that all ductwork had to be delivered to site palletized in order that it could be offloaded at a specific time and distributed (vertically) by a logistics company.

Solution

Poppleton developed our own pallet that could be easily and safely loaded, and offloaded using a crane, a fork lift or a pump truck. These pallets were manufactured to suit the size of our own 14 tonne delivery vehicle, and the rear of 40ft wagons as provided by our logistics provider.

By using these pallets we were able to deliver ductwork to site in the format required the client and the success of this method of delivery was noted by the main contractor and imitated by other contractors on the project.

This solution was recognised by our site teams to be far more efficient than the more prevalent method of manual handling ductwork from the factory and onto site and therefore wherever it is practicable and commercially beneficial to do so, this method of delivery has been adopted on other projects.

Safety

Poppleton delivered this project with no incidents or accidents of any description.
