Construction Logistics

Our comprehensive integrated services have been refined over the past 35-years. 

They have been developed to support principal contractor and developer partners, to effectively set-up their sites and manage the day-to-day logistical activities of the site, safely, efficiently and sustainably.

Site Set-up & Enabling Works

DGP will work with operational teams to plan and set-up sites, including the provision of any enabling works, hoarding and temporary gates, offices and welfare facilities, car parking provisions and temporary works, to allow operations teams to concentrate on constructing the project.

Site Fire Safety Management

We support clients to develop robust fire safety plans, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone working and visiting site.

Safety routes are effectives signed, routes are maintained, and emergency exits are regularly inspected, with fire alarms routinely tested. Firefighting equipment is provided, installed, and maintained. Our Fire Marshals focus on identifying and mitigating risks and produce routine status reports.

Site Traffic Management & Delivery Coordination

Effective traffic management is vital to prevent accidents and congestion on the roads, plus the safe and efficient flow of personnel, vehicles, and materials on site. Every construction site is unique and has different layouts, access points, with bespoke requirements and activities being carried out by different contractors using a variety of different machinery - All are evaluated and incorporated into our traffic management plans.

Traffic management and the coordination of material deliveries is a critical activity on every site and effective planning and communication is essential. Our traffic management teams are highly trained and following strict compliance procedures to ensure this is done safely and effectively. To achieve this, our teams utilise an online traffic management booking system, to ensure deliveries are well coordinated and the project team is kept up-to-date with logistics plans and real time delivery information.

Site Welfare, Cleaning and Catering

Looking after people’s welfare on-site is of paramount importance. We believe that feeling safe, comfortable and working in a clean and well-kept environment should be a given and certainly help with motivation, productivity and projecting a professional image to visitors and members of the public.

We supply, install, and maintain staff accommodation blocks, canteens, washrooms, changing and drying areas, and communal areas. This includes regular cleaning; builders clean and deep cleaning. Our teams also provide full catering services and focus on delivering high quality nutritious menus to cater for all dietary requirements.

We implement a range of KPI’s to track performance and reward our employees for initiatives that achieve results. We provide and install effective waste management signage and set up clearly defined waste collection areas with separate waste streams identified.
