Concrete bases for mobile homes
A case study on how during the pandemic we replaced three concrete bases urgently needed at a mobile home park.
Client: South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils
Project: replace homes bases in three sites
Department: Highways & Engineering
The client wanted a quick turnaround with the project as residents were waiting to install a new mobile home on one of the pads. There were three bases in total to replace, whilst adhering to the government guidelines during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The Highways Team made this a priority project and even before they had been awarded the work they made provisions to start almost the very next day. The old concrete pads had also to be disposed of which ODS can easily manage sustainably being a one-stop-shop. Our waste goes to a recycling plant and crushed, graded and turned back into recycled aggregates.
Due to COVID-19 procuring materials was getting more and more difficult, so the team requested them before even being given the contract. Having a strong, mainly local supply chain this was achieved.
A quality hardstanding was produced in all three locations ready for the three mobile homes to be sighted. The work was completed specification, in good and to a good standard.
“The office staff were efficient and quick to respond to our needs, with an engineer sent out to fully discuss the scope of works. We were kept up to date with start dates, and ODS were able to work within our timeframes. The site workforce was friendly and courteous towards neighbouring properties and carried out the work in a timely and tidy manner to avoid disruption to the park. We were given regular updates on the progress of the works and any unforeseen issues were sensibly resolved. ODS made sure all the correct health and safety measures were put in place and strictly adhered to. Given the current situation with COVID-19, I am particularly impressed with how little disruption this caused to the works and how government guidelines were followed at all times.”
