How To Keep Your Construction Site Running Through the Winter Months

As the weather is starting to turn a bit colder, it’s becoming clear that winter is just around the corner. Weather conditions can certainly cause adverse problems on construction sites with them really kicking off properly in November and December.

There are, however, a few things that you can plan ahead, to ensure your construction site continues to run efficiently through the winter months ahead. Always make sure you decide on what to book in good time for any unexpected changes in the weather.


At FTH Hire Group, we have a wide range of lighting equipment that will help keep your construction site sufficiently lit as the days get shorter. Having adequate lighting on a site where visibility could be dangerous, is incredibly important and is in fact required by the HSE

That is why we have included lighting equipment in our Core 80 product line. These quality products will be guaranteed to always be in stock.

Not only is it important to keep yourself and other workers warm on a construction site, it’s also important if you need to dry walls, set cement, cure paint and much more. Winter months are always a challenge with building work such as this. 

FTH Hire Group hold stocks of 3KW Quartz Red Rad Heaters, also part of our Core 80 line of products. These portable Infra-Red heaters are ideal for providing instant heat in and around your construction site.

Pumping & Drying

Keeping the site dry over the coldest and wettest months means a safe and efficient environment, for workers as well as tradesmen who may need to come on site. If you need to clear your construction site on a regular basis, then we have a choice of different sizes of pump available to you.
