McGee’s in-house design team has the capability to develop innovative plant to ensure safe, efficient and cost-effective delivery of services.
Through constant investment we have developed numerous innovative plant solutions, including the electric and remote controlled excavators.
We have a large and diverse transport fleet and many vehicles are fitted with specialist equipment, such as hydraulic cranes and demountable bodies. Heavy tippers are fitted with a digital weigh loading system.
The fleet of McGee yellow tippers is one of the largest and most recognised fleets of tipper lorries in the UK.
The cost effectiveness of all plant and vehicles is constantly monitored and new techniques and technology are introduced into the fleet on a regular basis. We protect our enviable plant and transport safety record through driver training programmes. Drivers regularly receive training on safety, courtesy on the road and route efficiency. They also ensure the specifications of the vehicles they operate are fully compliant with relevant legislation.
We ensure all plant is regularly serviced by a maintenance crew to make sure it is fully operational. The age and condition of each item is periodically assessed and replaced as necessary to preserve efficiency, ensuring project delivery deadlines and reducing environmental impact.
Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)
Transport for London’s Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) has awarded McGee their Gold certification.
FORS is a voluntary certification scheme and is a method of recognising fleet operations which comply with the requirements of the FORS standard, which is based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS)
McGee is a member of the Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) community and is recognised as a ‘CLOCS Champion’.
CLOCS Champions are organisations and /or individual construction projects actively implementing the CLOCS Standard (WRRR). It is the first national standard designed to help reduce collisions between trucks and all vulnerable road users such as cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Together, CLOCS Champions are promoting the standard throughout their own fleets and their supply chains.
As part of the CLOCS programme, McGee has also joined ‘Workstream One – Improving vehicle safety’. The workstream is guided by a working group which has a high level representation from across the construction logistics industry, including: vehicle manufacturers, developers, operators, construction companies, regulatory bodies and charities.
