TOMKINS TRUSTs NEXTRack for complex top down construction

With direct access to the water’s edge, Midwater offers unparalleled coastal living with all the benefits of the Sanctuary Cove lifestyle.


Tomkins Commercial engaged neXtrack to supply real time monitors for validation of the dust controls used in their complex “top down” construction methodology.

The Challenge

Top-down construction involves the substructure and basement floors being excavated and constructed at the same time as the superstructure floors. the adaptation of this top-down speeds up programme build time, however also introduces airborne dust from excavation works being undertaken in an enclosed basement space.

The Solution

neXtrack utilised it’s HIP-Y real time monitor to identify the size of required exclusion zones in the basement, as well as monitoring for effectiveness of control measures for dust suppression.

The use of real time technology provided Tomkins with certainty for workers operating in the basements. Utilising its traffic light system, the HIP-Y was able to notify the team when RPE should be used, as well as when works should pause to address any control measure effectiveness.
