Workers at the former Harperbury Hospital development in Radlett, Hertfordshire are using Donseed fingerprint tablets to sign in and out of site.
The abandoned mental hospital in Harpers Lane was bought by housing developer Bloor Homes. The development comprises 134 homes, which consist of one and two bedroom apartments, and two, three, four and five bedroom houses. This will be in addition to 72 affordable homes.
Part of the land also includes a bowls club, a football field and Green Belt land.
The bowls club will be relocated to the southern end of the site and the football pitches will be retained.
In addition to the homes, the tree-lined Lime Way footpath will also be improved, with the addition of a cycle path.
Construction workers are clocking in and out of the site with their fingerprints on state-of-the-art biometric tablets designed specifically for robust environments such as construction sites. As a result, their hours are recorded more accurately than using paper time sheets and health and safety requirements are also delivered directly to each worker through the tablets as they sign in.
