Construction management

20th April 2017 | Article By Lee Baker

The South Bank Visitor Management Group of companies in the visitor economy we facilitate oversees the co-ordination of construction in the area in order to minimise disruption.

The South Bank Construction Co-ordination Group meets once a month to bring together developers and infrastructure providers so that any street closures necessary to work can be co-ordinated. With considerable investment in South Bank, these meetings are vital to ensuring that any potential problems to visitors arising from simultaneous closures are avoided.

This partnership between contractors and those representing residents, visitors and businesses will be further strengthened by the creation of a new position of construction sites co-ordinator, who will negotiate on behalf of the local authorities, Transport for London and South Bank Employers’ Group to reduce traffic and congestion relating to construction work.
