Utilising funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Welsh Government, St Fagan’s National History Museum in Cardiff underwent a massive £25m makeover that included both new build and refurbishment works.
This project was part of a large new build and refurbishment development to upgrade the museum. TPS360 was involved at the early stages and assisted with specification and planning.
During the main contract, it became evident that the build was behind schedule, and as a result, our work was delayed. Timings became more critical as well as having to deal with product storage and protection through the winter months; a hot storage area with infrared heaters was created to artificially keep the resin and aggregate at a minimum temperature of 20°c.
During a site safety inspection, our operatives were in the process of grinding an external concrete slab using our remote-controlled floor grinders and triple filter extract system. Kier’s Safety Advisor witnessed the use of the machinery in a professional manner and was impressed how they removed the risk exposure of HAVS and dust to both the operatives and the local environment. Resulting in the site being issued with a “BLUE” site safety award, meaning we had gone above and beyond the Kier safety procedures, and excelled in safety performance.
