Speedy Hire, the United Kingdom’s largest tool and equipment rental company, has launched a new service to help project managers set up construction sites. The Speedy Site Solution is a new consultancy-led service designed to help map out and supply essential communications, accommodation and security needs before a construction project starts.
Once planned, a dedicated Speedy representative will provide full-site communications such as a landline telephone and broadband access within 14 days rather than the usual three months. Known as the Speedy “canopy” service, it can be installed on a temporary or permanent basis without the need to dig for cabling. To guarantee site security, the plan offers use of a mobile JCB CCTV tower, providing site control from a remote monitoring center on a 24/7 basis.
Through the security program, Speedy can provide MSite, an all-in-one biometric access control system. Through hand or iris recognition, the system allows a range of functions from simple access control to time management and carbon footprint data by monitoring site workers’ activity. Also, accommodation units are available for office space or storage.
Additional site set-up products can also be provided through the service such as fencing, power generation, furniture and heating.
“Delays in installing communications, security and power accommodation can cost construction projects time and money,” said Darren Evley, managing director of Speedy Site Solutions. “Speedy Site Solutions offers an integrated service that brings together our extensive product portfolio and professional expertise to help project managers identify the exact requirements of a site and source the appropriate equipment.”
Speedy Hire is based in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, U.K.
