Our site team at Northpoint in Bromley has received a Considerate Constructors 'Best Practice' point after discovering a nest of Peregrine Falcons.
We quickly halted works within the near vicinity and contacted the relevant authorities. Since then, we have, with the help of a visiting ecologist and the London Peregrine Partnership, monitored and recorded the development of the nest, it’s eggs and the subsequent hatchings. We implemented changes to the programming to ensure that the birds remained undisturbed. We briefed site visitors, staff and operatives on the sensitivity of this unusual nest site on a window box planter on a high-rise development.
Meanwhile, scaffolding to the north, south and east elevations is nearing completion whilst cladding contractors begin on the ninth floor.
