The Brief:

Our client, EC extensions contacted us in July 2012 to provide strong, temporary hoarding to two properties in Guildford in which they were carrying out basement conversions. The hoarding was required to provide protection to the passing public from machinery and flying debris as the basements were excavated, as well as securing the site against thieves and vandalism.

The Solution:

We recommended the erection of wooden hoarding around the perimeter of each property. The combination of our reinforced wooden boards with strong timber posts set in concrete are a solution favoured by the construction industry; only removable with the aid of machinery they provide a safe, secure environment within which to work as well as a formidable barrier against unlawful entry.

The Outcome:

It took two operatives two days to safely erect the wooden hoarding around the entire front gardens of the two properties. The site hoarding installed includes a number of access doors to allow for easy delivery of skips and building materials. Not only did the hoarding increase the safety of passing pedestrians, it also secured the site ensuring peace of mind for both the homeowners and EC Construction.

In the Future:

The wooden hoarding will remain in place throughout the builds, until the completion of the basement conversions in around 12 weeks time. When instructed, the team from Safe Site Facilities will return to site to carefully dismantle and remove the hoarding.
