Informative notice on construction site
This joint notice by construction firm Kier Regional Ltd and clients Hampshire Constabulary, tells the public about the history of the site, the planned sequence of building operations, and what is going on at the time. The map shows the location of WWII bomb craters and a suspected UXB requiring to be investigated before piling could begin.

"History of the site
The site was initially developed from mud flats of the River Test in the 1950s to facilitate the construction of Southern Road. By the 1960s the site had been developed for use as a depot, involving the construction of warehouse buildings to the north east boundary. The electricity pylons were installed in the 1970s. These 132 KV lines supply power to over 80% of Southampton. Investigations have led to confim there may be a possible risk of unexploded ordnance from WWII. As a result specialists have carried out magnetometer surveying in the area.

Description of the building
The contract is to build the new facilities for Hampshire Constabulary to move into in 2010. There will be an 8 storey office tower and a custody suite with 36 cells. The reinforced concrete frame will be clad with stone, curtain walling and brickwork. The project commences in May 2009 and completes in December 2010."

The Safe Crane Campaign notice says that the crane is a Lierherr 200EC-B tower capable of lifting 9530 Kg at 20 metres, and names the person responsible for it.
