Installation

Queensbury’s shelters are installed across the UK from our two depots based in Portsmouth and Gateshead. Whenever possible, we install our shelters using our own directly employed personnel.

Our fixing crews are overseen by the Operations Director, Installation Managers and Supervisors who are all qualified to Supervisor level of the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991.

The shelter fixing crews all have at least one member qualified to Operative level of the New Roads and Streetworks Act 1991. This provides qualification to undertake the following:

  • Excavation in the road / highway
  • Excavation, back-filling and reinstatement – construction layers
  • Reinstatement – hot and cold lay bituminous materials
  • Reinstatement of concrete slabs
  • Reinstatement of modular surfaces and concrete footways

We operate 12 tonne flatbed lorries with a front mounted HIAB crane and all the crews have been trained to install the shelters safely and with customer care paramount.

Risk Assessment and Method Statements (RAMS)

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regulations) are intended to ensure that health and safety issues are properly considered during a project’s development so that the risk of harm to those who build, use and maintain structures is reduced.

Prior to any shelter or canopy installation RAMS documents will be produced by our in-house Health and Safety department and submitted to the customer for approval. These can be either generic or site specific depending on the site conditions and the type of project that’s being undertaken.

All Site Operatives hold CSCS cards.

All Managers hold Gold CSCS cards.
