9 Millbank's top level safety in construction

Standing proudly on the banks of the majestic River Thames in the beating heart of historic Westminster, 9 Millbank is a new residential address consisting of 189 apartments and penthouses, encapsulating all of British luxury and style.

Featuring contemporary interior design by Goddard Littlefair and world-class leisure facilities, the development is situated around a private courtyard garden for the ultimate modern lifestyle.

The first phase, Millbank Quarter, is an exciting collection of 95 new-build apartments that celebrate the neoclassical style of its architectural past. The second release, Millbank Residences is a restoration of the iconic 9 Millbank address, made up of 94 Manhattan to 4 bedroom apartments, maintaining all of the original historic listed features.

The project is currently underway, with Millbank Residences to be reconstructed and completed in 2023.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of occupational health in regards to washing hands and keeping hygiene to a high standard was of maximum importance as protection and prevention of the virus became more and more imperative.

The Armorgard ScrubKart is a warm water, 110v powered, mobile hand washing kart, purpose built for construction sites. With 120 hand washes per 25L tank, this foot operated, built to last unit takes staying safe on construction sites to the next level.

After consultation and review with Armorgard, the project chose the ScrubKart due to its versatility and its ability to move to work areas quickly.

It gives operatives in the work area the ability to wash their hands anywhere on the project with an instant supply of warm water. Washing hands for 20 seconds at the first opportunity, using soap and water, has become the preferred choice for the project which will help keep hands clean and avoid spread of the virus.
