Donseed biometric time and attendance tablets are being used at the major groundworks project at Kings Cross Station.
The project is part of the Argent development to construct roads, sewers, lorry parks and deep drainage.
The key challenge on the project is to work over and above live tunnels, to work alongside high-speed one/Network Rail and the restrictions they place on the works being carried out.
Advanced Weholite drainage has been installed as part of the project; a plastic manhole system with pipe diameters of 400mm – 2000mm and manholes from 2.1m diameter. This was installed as an attenuation system for storm water. Concrete culverts for attenuation drainage next to live network rail tunnels were also installed and an advanced cooling system has been run from the new cooling pod to the other buildings currently being constructed on the Kings Cross development site.
Kev Dendy, Marketing and Strategy Director at Donseed, says: “The health and safety of workers is obviously a key consideration on a project like this taking place in a live environment with trains, existing infrastructure and members of the public, so knowing exactly who is on site and when is absolutely paramount. With the Donseed biometric tablets all workers clock in and out of their various sites using their fingerprints leaving an accurate record of attendance for health and safety and payment.”
