Waste at Events and Festivals - Planning for Trash

Yurt, tepee, tent, log cabin, open air hammock or some other glamping experience. Normally the type of accommodation at a festival will tend to give an example of the type of people who have temporarily occupied the land.

Rubbish is your new friend There may be a myriad of food outlets surrounding your festival ground, offering your festival goers delights such as curry,…

Monsoon in Manchester: months worth of rain in one evening

All across Manchester and the surrounding areas, thunder and lightning hit with a vengeance. Months of rain fell in a matter of hours causing mass flooding, and that was just the beginning of the weather nightmare that occurred - and the City match being cancelled was the least of everyone’s worries. In the city centre of Manchester, trams were drawn to a halt and Market Street resembled somewhat of a shallow lake. Stores such as Harvey Nichols were victims of the flood and staff were seen swishing through the ground floor of the building. source: manchestereveningnews.co.uk The Arndale staff were…

There's a Storm Coming

There's a storm coming, and we'd all best be ready when he does. A famous movie quote seems appropriate as Storm Callum passes through the UK, no doubt leaving devastation in its wake. The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian, and Scottish Borders. This has now been followed up by an amber warning for Wales. As Storm Callum passes the UK, a period of heavy rain will affect Wales on Friday and Saturday. The rain will be accompanied by strong winds, which could lead to the destruction of roads and trees, increasing the likelihood of…

Is the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, the UK Driver of Post COVID-19 Economic Stimulus?

We have got used to watching the graphs of how events have unfolded since March in the UK. A devastating time for all, notably so for the terrible loss of life and the change to the economic structure of the UK. The latter resulting in uncertainty for jobs and business. Business in the UK waited and drew breath whilst it did all it could to diversify, to hibernate until the all clear was given to begin to open its doors. To start the period of rejuvenation that matches current times and helps build a stronger Britain. At the heart of…

How Will the Weather Affect Productivity?

It has been said throughout time that weather affects people’s mood. A lack of sunlight can cause Seasonal Affective Disorder. The disorder usually affects people from October to April when there is a reduction in daylight hours. In the same way, weather can affect productivity on a construction site. A reduction in productivity could lead to extended project lengths and increased costs. The impact of adverse weather is a common cause of delays and economic losses in construction projects. In a journal published earlier this year, a study indicated that UK weather extends project durations by an average of 21%.…

Flooding, Climate Change, and How to Act in an Emergency

For a country that experiences a significant amount of rain throughout the year, the UK still has a lot to learn about flooding, understanding and preventing floods from causing irreparable damage, and ensuring we are prepared for the worst. Recently, the government has approved a £42m flood defence scheme that will protect approx. 110,000 homes and businesses in Hull. The scheme was created as a response to flooding in December 2013, which resulted in more than 250 properties being flooded. Five years after the events could be described as a slow reaction given the number of subsequent storms that have…

How far has modern Plant Machinery come?

Modern machinery as we know it has come a long way. Necessity being the mother of invention has enabled the ability for the completion of bigger civil engineering projects. From the construction of canals, roads, through to railways and modern motorways, the need to deliver projects on time and on budget has driven change. The nation’s infrastructure bears testament to the numerous changes in civil engineering and how mechanisation has improved projects. It is hard to think that the construction of Egypt’s pyramids occurred about four thousand years ago, yet it was only in the past 200 years that mechanisation…
