Worthing Care Centre

Worthing Care Centre

Our Combisafe solution helped keep on-site workers safe at height.

The Care Centre

The Care Centre

The Worthing Borough Council has provided the funding for a new Worthing Integrated Care Centre, a multi-million-pound investment into their community. This brings the most cutting-edge facilities possible to the south coast town, adding additional GP offices, Mental Health Services, Community Care and a pharmacy.

Due to the nature of this challenge, the contractor turned to Altrad Generation to help provide a solution that would meet the requirements for safe working. Utilising the design capabilities from Combisafe support providing the designs within 72 hours.

It will be a 4-story RC frame building, with a cross-laminated timber roof. This means there was a challenge from the contractor to provide safe working conditions whilst construction workers were at the height of the building.

The Solution

The Solution

Combisafe’s Edge Protection System offers a versatile solution to all challenges it faces, in this situation the option to fix or surface mount the barriers was a major driving force behind utilising the solution to create a safe working area around and in the openings of the roof.

The Combisafe Steel Mesh Barrier system is designed to provide an excellent edge protection solution for all construction environments at different phases of a construction project. It is easy to use, has minimal installation and maintenance requirements, and meets the most stringent EN 13374 standards. This system has been the forerunner and one of the most trusted edge protection products for over two decades.

The Testimonial

The Testimonial

The project manager highlighted that “because it’s extendable and you can adjust the heights, as well as add a make-up barrier to increase the barrier height. That makes it an ideal solution for when the roof level gets built up, the barriers are already there in place. That’s another selling point for us”.

Mike Clarke, Sales Representative at Altrad Generation said “It has been a pleasure to support this project and work with a great team on site. The requirement was complex due to site requirements and the required loading meant we had to drastically increase the number of uprights so the structure could cope with the loading requirements and a testament to our system’s capabilities”.

All the Combisafe panels and fixings were stocked and delivered by our Croydon depot, part of our nationwide branch network that stocks Combisafe should it be the solution for your site.
