Acoustic Fencing – The Client

Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd are specialist contractors to the energy sector.

Background

Perimeter Fencing Solutions were approached by Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd regarding a project in South Wales that they were let down on by another contractor.  The project included the design, build and energisation of a 20MW gas peaking power plant in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.  The five-month project was connected to Western Power Distribution (WPD) network in February 2021.  The complete project involved full civil and electrical design, procurement of electrical equipment for the private network, construction of the gas peaking power plant, installation of switchgear, transformers and generators, and final testing of all components prior to energisation.

Perimeter Fencing Solutions at the site in Ebbw Vale to ascertain the full scope of works that was required.

Project Outline

Further to a full and comprehensive site survey and a personal consultation, it was established that the scope of works included the design, manufacture, and installation of a 3m high timber reflective acoustic fencing around the sub-station.

There was also a requirement for a large acoustic entrance gate, which was constructed as a double leaf gate for vehicles to gain entrance to the site, a wicket gate was also installed within the framework, which allowed essential pedestrian access. 

Project Challenges

Due to the high altitude of the site, we recognised immediately that the system would have to withstand extreme weather and wind conditions, therefore, we installed 250mm RSJ posts at 2m centres and excavated to a depth of 1.7m which were backfilled with mass concrete to ensure there would be no movement within the posts. 

Project Completed

Our acoustic panels all conformed and tested to BS EN 1793 and compliant with Highway Sector Scheme 2C for the prefabrication of environmental barriers.  The average density of the system was 26.4kg/M2 excluding the posts.  All timber used on this project was FSC certified. 

Although the main purpose of the system was to provide an acoustic barrier, it also had to be anti-climb for security reasons, therefore, we designed, manufactured, and installed hot dipped, galvanised angle brackets around the perimeter of the site to hold three rows of barbed wire. This would secure the site and deter any unwanted visitors. 

Due to the five-month construction build of the project, we completed the manufacture and full installation of this project within twelve weeks, which was ahead of schedule and the given deadline.  Perimeter Fencing solutions follow all social distancing and safety measures on site. This includes mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing which was taken into consideration with our deadline to complete work on site.

“It was great to work with Hywel Davies and his team at Perimeter Fencing Solutions, who helped us design and build the infrastructure for the critical energy market in Wales and we very much look forward to working with Perimeter Fencing Solutions on our next project” said Dean Stone of Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd”

Perimeter Fencing Solutions thoroughly enjoyed working on the project with Dean Stone, Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd and his team and we very much look forward to working with them in the very near future.  We are already pricing for further works around the United Kingdom with Wilson Stone Contracting Ltd.

WHAT SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY

Gateway 4 Project, Armthorpe - Readie Construction

Readie Construction was appointed as main contractor to deliver the 25 acre site, Gateway 4 scheme at Armthorpe in a 34-week programme which is expected to be completed in October 2020, which will consist of a 409,000 sq ft distribution centre with large yards on either side, 38 loading doors and extensive lorry parking for 83 HGVs.  This state-of-the-art distribution centre is being developed by Trebor Developments and their partner Hillwood.  The site has direct access from the A630, less than a mile from Junction 4 of the M18.

Perimeter fencing solutions worked with Readie Construction Ltd to help construct this new facility, installing the security fencing, acoustic fencing, timber fencing and gates along with rising barriers and turnstiles.  This was the second project that we have worked with in conjunction with Readie and now have several live projects we are currently working on with them also.

There are many security systems on the market and with our extensive knowledge in the security sector; we pride ourselves on delivering the correct product to suit the clients needs within budget and within the programme required.

We supplied and installed 675m of 2.4m high v-mesh security fencing to the boundary of the unit, which included several access gates.

We also supplied acoustic fencing at 2m and 2.5m high to the boundary of the site where the noise of the HGV’s had the potential to impact upon neighbouring properties.  The product we supplied and installed in these areas was Ransford’s prefabricated reflective acoustic panels on steel posts.  Ransford’s are a leading manufacturer of acoustic fencing and we use the prefabricated panels to save on installation time on site.

The benefits of this acoustic fencing are:

  • Environmentally friendly timber construction
  • Flexible system where varying heights and widths can be achieved
  • Meets stringent Highway Agency requirements
  • Category B3
  • Laboratory tested sound reduction up to 29 Db
  • Superficial mass ranges available (6.9 kg/m2 up to 11.66 kg/m2 if required

We also installed several manual rising arm barriers to the vehicle access points on site, these were installed for the security on site to control the flow of vehicles into and out of the site.

The project also required two turnstiles to be installed within the perimeter fencing to control employees’ access into site.  These were installed within a few hours, due to them being mechanically lifted into position by one of our specialist hiab delivery vehicles.

This project commenced in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic was in full effect which meant we had to adapt to new ways of working and ensure there were safe systems of work to protect both our installers and the other trades on site.  Despite this we still got the materials delivered and installed on time and in a safe manner.

Lee Chaulk the Commercial Director for Readie Construction Ltd commented:

‘’ This was the second project Perimeter Fencing Solutions had undertaken with Readie construction.  We have worked alongside Richard Salmon for several years now and he has always delivered the projects on time and within budget.’’
