St William & Anchor Logistics - Courtyard Gardens

"All of the companies on-site have found the system very easy to adopt and so far, it has massively reduced the number of unplanned deliveries and vehicle waiting times, which has made everything more efficient."

Narcis Boigou, Logistics Manager

Project Details:

  • St William constructed Courtyard Gardens, a collection of 111 new 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and penthouses situated in the picturesque town of Oxted, Surrey
  • Anchor Logistics was appointed as the specialist Logistics Contractor for the project. It was their responsibility to ensure that the site logistics operated efficiently and safely
  • The project was a £50m new build within a small English commuter town


Courtyard Gardens was always going to be logistically challenging. Being just off the main High Street in Oxted there were only two access points for vehicles, both of which were very small and only one of them was serviced by the tower crane. With limited storage and material handling areas on site as well, the project team needed to ensure that the only forklift on site was scheduled out to maximise its efficiency.


Veyor was implemented on the project to provide one central platform for the site management, subcontractors, suppliers, plant operators and traffic controllers to plan and coordinate deliveries and materials handling. Subcontractors had the ability to request a delivery or use of the crane in advance for St William to approve, creating greater transparency across the site and ensuring accountability. The builder could also block out days/times with disruptive activities, such as crane services or concrete pours.


- 50-60% less time saved on phone calls and in materials handling/crane meetings

- More than 20 fewer unnecessary daily phone calls between the site management team and the subcontractors

- Fewer clashes and disputes around deliveries and crane lifts

- Thousands of pounds saved in reduced overtime as well as better visibility as to why overtime may have been necessary

- Reduced risk in program delays
