Compound Types

Generally, compounds are required at different locations along the route and are mostly alongside or adjacent to the proposed works. We predominantly build and install two types of compound: main compounds and satellite compounds.

Main Compounds

Main compounds are hubs for core project activities. They often include site offices, storage areas, fuel supplies, maintenance and parking facilities (for plant, vans and cars), as well as welfare facilities for site personnel.

Satellite Compounds

Satellite compounds are smaller, providing an office area, local storage for plant and materials, some welfare facilities, and limited car parking for site personnel.

Compound Utilities

Compounds are the point of entry to a worksite. They are vital for storing materials and equipment and site personnel welfare. Where possible, temporary connections for compounds will be made to existing utilities to reduce the need for generators and storage tanks. However, in the majority of compounds, we install water tanks for washing hands & toilets and use bottled water for drinking or making a drink.

Compound Safety & Security

Our Compound Management team install perimeter fencing to improve safety and security. The type of fencing will take into account the level of protection required and the visual impact on the area.

Lighting in and around the compound will be appropriate and will consider any light pollution that could affect any adjacent properties or local wildlife.

Within compounds, areas for offices, welfare and storage are secured with fences and gates.

Compound Personnel

We can supply key staff such as a Gateman, site security, site supervisors and cleaners if required. We can ensure the compound is maintained, that site attendees are aware and comply with site rules.

Handing Back Compound

On completion of the works, our Compound Management team return the site to its original state for the hand back. This work is undertaken as soon as reasonably practicable.
