Our Barn Elms team are committed to managing our works and mitigating any impacts. Examples of measures we currently have in place include:

  • Hoarding will be erected along the site boundary

  • Netting will be erected above the hoarding to prevent balls from the playing fields entering the construction site

  • Access and construction activities is minimised during times of heavy recreational use of the playing fields.

  • Various other measures including using electric gantry cranes where practicable and electric forklifts are be used to reduce noise

  • Onsite concrete batchers and static concrete re-mixers are screened and not used outside standard hours

  • Concrete breakers are not be used at night (22:00 to 08:00) except in cases of emergency

  • Set limits to control activities, such as noise (Section 61 approval) from LB Richmond
