Nuvia understand that safety on site is the paramount driver for all Nuvia site based projects and these safety systems are well defined under Nuvia's SHE system. In addition our construction teams are knowledgeable on the very close relationship between Safety and Construction procedures. As such Nuvia adopts a process to ensure there is a clear line of responsibility on-site. This allows us to comply with all regulatory bodies to ensure that our Construction Managers rigorously implement the required systems on site through clear procedures, signage and controls.

Nuvia Construction capabilities are headed by our Lead Construction Manager with a team of SQEP resources, all with CDM qualifications.

Our strategy to deliver a safe construction is developed from our Construction Management Plan (CMP) which captures the following;

  • Management and organisation structure
  • Construction laydown areas
  • Site boundaries and interfaces
  • Construction craneage plan
  • Work safety plans
  • Emergency access and egress
  • Construction fire safety plans
  • Site security and access control
  • Environmental aspects
  • Waste management plan
  • Constructability readiness reviews

We have the SQEP capabilities and experience to run 'island site' construction facilities or work alongside our clients, assessing procedures and processes, introducing benefits of improved working, in a safe manner to a high quality standard.
