Pre-Build Checks

Prior to each build a member of Powell & Co team will visit a site and complete a pre-build checklist. This covers all aspects of our construction operations with you, including site access, health and safety, and CDM.   The checklist also covers everything from transport route to welfare facilities to collection of waste.
