To provide Two-Way Radio communications at each site for site-wide coverage. Often, the nature of the building work requires communication both above and below ground. Essential communication is provided between crane operatives and banksmen which also has health and safety implications.

The radios hired to the various sites are programmed with both digital and analogue frequencies so that there are multiple channel options for the end-users in a typically crowded spectrum environment.
Training has been provided on-site where necessary along with guidance in the use of different channels where interference has been detected.
When necessary, site visits have been made to ensure the radio coverage is as would be expected. The essential nature of the communication required at site means that any problems must be dealt with very quickly, even when the problem is perceived rather than real.
