The Challenge

Site Solutions collaborate with a number of shopfitting companies around the UK and, as a result, are well equipped and familiar with the fast paced nature of the industry. Our waste and hire specialists work reactively to deliver the most efficient solutions to complete each project.

As experts in the fit out industry, we approached a shopfitting business that we knew had a number of projects in progress to highlight our services. They were unhappy with their current provider of waste management and have since used Site Solutions for all of their waste requirements over the last 6 months.

Timing and flexibility are key in any fit out project. Often, projects can overrun or encounter unforeseen problems along the way, this shopfitting business required a single point of contact that could be called upon to find a last minute waste solution or to manage the disposal of difficult waste types.

The Solution

Each customer is allocated a dedicated account manager as their main port of call for each job. Our team understand the importance of building good working relationships and getting to know how each contact works, Steph has been the account manager for this customer and delivers each solution exactly as required.

Typically, skips sized between 6 and 12 yards are arranged depending on the size of the project. Waste types can vary and sometimes include plasterboard. Where plasterboard is present additional planning is necessary . This is due to strict regulations on plasterboard waste. Some disposal points will accept 10% contamination others have a zero policy on place, in these instances we need to source a separate skips for plasterboard. The primary goal is to find a disposal point that meets both criteria, but on occasions where the nearest disposal point will not accept, either another disposal point is identified further afield or a second skip is delivered to site where waste is separated and collected.

Fit out projects take place at a popular high street store, normally located in busy town centres. Considered planning is required because of this;

  • We have organised an enclosed skip where delivery options were limited to the shop front only
  • When located on a retail park, some require a permit for skip delivery. Usually, the centre management would arrange permits.

Whatever the challenge, whether that be managing difficult waste types or organising a last minute, same day skip, Site Solutions will find a solution to ensure all jobs are completed efficiently and to schedule.
