The Brief:

Peterborough Council needed to secure two separate sites in the city. The first was a construction site and the second a site where ground works were being carried out. Both sites needed to be secured effectively to both protect the public and to prevent trespassers.

The Solution:

At the construction site SafeSite advised using a mix of free-standing timber hoardingdug-in timber hoarding and dug-in hoarding gates to allow easy access to workmen and vehicles. At the ground works site SafeSite advised using free-standing metal hoarding, which would provide the best combination of security and flexibility when moving.

The Outcome:

SafeSite was appointed to provide the hoarding systems and over a two and a half week period supplied and installed in stages:

  • 80m free-standing timber hoarding
  • 10m dug-in timber hoarding (including vehicle and pedestrian gate)
  • 200m free-standing metal hoarding

Two men on each site worked on the installation. At the construction site part of the free-standing timber hoarding was attached to TVCB concrete barriers and part was fixed to the parapet wall of a bridge. The dug-in timber hoarding spanned the road forming the site entrance, where both a vehicle and pedestrian gate were incorporated.

At the ground works site SafeSite delivered the steel hoarding to a compound outside of the city and ran it into the city centre on our 3.5 tonne trucks so as to cause minimum disruption.

In the Future:

Peterborough City Council were impressed with the speed and quality of the work and the organisation that commissioned the work have now requested assistance from SafeSite for projects in Sweden.
