Brogan recently won the Balfour Beatty 2019 Safety Award for works on the One Palace Street project. The award recognises high levels of safety awareness, a proactive approach and positive attitude towards safety.
Our remit includes full perimeter access scaffold, hoist run offs and a full height advanced netted frame guard for the erection of the scaffold on the Buckingham Gate elevation for public safety. We are also providing the hoist package for the complex redevelopment.
Richard Boeg, Head of Operations at Balfour Beatty commented on our award “The Brogan team has worked tirelessly to attain the highest levels of safety on the One Palace Street project. They have been duly recognised with the 2019 Safety Award because of their innovative approach and positive attitude towards both Balfour Beatty and the entire workforce on the project. Congratulations on the award and keep raising the bar”.
The Brogan pre-construction team worked in collaboration with Balfour Beatty from the outset (pre-tender phase) assisting with the access strategy, value engineering options and developing innovative solutions to overcome some of the access challenges the project team were faced with.
The façade of the building on Buckingham Gate which dates back to 1861 will be retained and was originally built as The Palace Hotel, a landmark hotel of the Victorian period that hosted distinguished guests of Queen Victoria. Once complete, the project will be the only residential building to directly overlook the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
