Haverfordwest School – Morgan Sindall – Temporary Site Hoarding

Haverfordwest School, Morgan Sindall - Temporary Site Hoarding

WORK on the new £48.7m Haverfordwest High VC School building has began this autumn.

It is set to be built on the site of the former Sir Thomas Picton School, most of which has now been demolished.

The new-build Haverfordwest High VC School will accommodate 1500 pupils aged 11-16 and 250 sixth form pupils.

The planned completion date for all works on site, including the leisure facilities, is 2022.

Pembrokeshire County Council’s technical in-house team appointed the contractor Morgan Sindall to develop the design of the new school.

Externally, the scheme will boast extensive sports facilities including playing fields, a WRU 3G standard rugby pitch and tennis facilities as well as parking, coach drop-off and road alterations into the existing site.

The project also includes a separate sports and leisure facility, which will be fully available to the school during school hours and members of the public outside school hours.

Perimeter Fencing Solutions were one of three companies approached to submit a competitive tender for the supply and install of 1.5km of Temporary Site Hoarding to the perimeter of the existing school.

Temporary Site Hoarding is an essential part of most construction projects because it prevents the public from entering a live construction site which is dangerous. It also gives the Main Contractor peace of mind knowing that materials and plant will be kept safe from theft and damage.

Perimeter Fencing Solutions we delighted to be successful with our bid and appointed in June 2020 for the supply and install of the Temporary Site Hoarding and 12 site entrance swing gates.

Morgan Sindall have a very thorough design process and the design was at the higher end of hoarding mainly as this project is on the Pembrokeshire coast.

The timber posts were 225mm x 75mm and spaced at 2.4m centres into concrete foundations 450mm diameter and 1000mm deep. The centres of the posts did decrease to 1.9m centres on ends and corners. We installed 4no. 100mm x 50mm support rails to the posts which were overlapped for added strength.

Once the timber framework was in place we then fixed 18mm Smart-ply Site Protect Hoarding to the rails with screws at a maximum of 250mm centres.

To cover the fixing joints we installed a 150mm x 22mm top and bottom capping strip and a 50mm x 22mm vertical strip.

There were areas of the site near the access road and service rooms to the existing school where there was a heavy presence of live services, mainly electric and gas. We were given service drawings from the land survey team however it was important that our trained operatives scanned every metre of the hoarding line with our CAT 4 Scanners and Generators. This method would give us a fairly accurate reading on location of services and depth.

As well as the Temporary Site Hoarding the site required multiple access areas for material deliveries therefore we manufactured and installed robust Steel Swing Gates in varying widths from 4m to 8m opening.

Of course, it was also important to make sure staff and visitors had a safe entry onto site therefore manufactured and installed Steel Pedestrian Access Gates. The steel pedestrian gates have been manufactured with self-closing hinges and a digital key pad meaning that if a person enters site the gates will always close shut behind them meaning security is kept at all times.

The programme given to Perimeter Fencing Solutions was extremely tights, just 5 weeks meaning we had to work safe, fast and smart. We used multiple teams on different areas of this huge site and we are pleased to say all works were completed to a very high standard and on time.

Project Manager Gareth Rees said, ‘I was very impressed with the management of this project delivered by Perimeter Fencing Solutions, the team worked extremely hard to deliver this very difficult project over the line for Morgan Sindall’

Asda Store, Stockport

Key Group is a leading complete solution provider of M&E, Store fitting, construction management and Asset Replacement within the retail & Commercial sectors.

Perimeter Fencing Solutions Ltd were approached by Key Electrical who have a maintenance contract with Asda stores nationally to propose a solution to an issue Asda were having at their store in the centre of Stockport.  This store had vehicle and pedestrian access ramps in two locations to the store, which was attracting anti-social behaviour i.e. smashed bottles, food, and human waste.

Key electrical approached Perimeter Fencing Solutions to come up with a solution to cage off the underside of the ramps to prevent people from gathering under them.  There were some difficulties to overcome as the walkways to the store needed to be maintained for pedestrians to use, the raking of the ramps and how to fix the posts as we were reluctant to break the ground as we were unsure of the services locations.

We met Key Electricals’ Project Manager Russell Topping on site to discuss the requirements and to come up with a concept that was acceptable and within budget for the client.  There are many security systems on the market and with our experience and knowledge within the industry we advised that 358 (Prison) mesh fencing would be the most suitable product to achieve the desired requirements.  Once the order was placed, we attended site once more to do a full measure of the two areas and came up with a full bespoke design for the fencing to the two areas, which entailed every post and panel being different sizes to account for the for the raking of the ramps and the areas we were able to fix to varying in widths.  Every post and panel were pre-cut and numbered during fabrication to match the design drawings to ensure there was no cutting on site.  The design also allowed for two manual single leaf gates to be installed for maintenance access to clean the areas of any debris that may accumulate.

During the manufacture period 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 the installers and the public whilst works were going on.  Despite this we still got the materials delivered on time.  The client also wanted the works fully completed and signed off within 2 weeks to minimise the time on site to minimise the risk of COVID-19.  Due to the works we did upfront fully measuring every panel and post and getting a full design, the install was completed, snagged and signed off in 8 days.

The client was over the moon with the end product, which instantly stopped the anti-social behaviour.  The local council were also impressed with the results and were looking to undertake similar works in other problem areas in the town and surrounding areas.

Russell Topping said ‘I have worked with Scott Thomas on previous projects and it has always been a pleasure dealing with him and his colleagues at Perimeter Fencing Solutions. No task is too much trouble for the team. I will definitely use Perimeter Fencing Solutions on my next project’

DP World, London Gateway

New 70,000 sq ft warehouse  DP World, London Gateway Logistics Park. DP World is the UK’s most integrated logistics hub, which comprises a state-of-the-art deep-sea port and rail terminal on an expansive land bank.

Perimeter fencing solutions worked with Readie Construction Ltd to help construct this new facility, installing the security fencing & gates, street furniture and Automatic gates with access control.

Working alongside SGP architects our brief was to assist with the design of a fully integrated system that would cater for the clients needs.

There are many security systems on the market but we pride ourselves with our extensive knowledge that we can deliver a product to suit the clients budget and requirements.

We manufactured and installed a 2.4 high powder coated Vmesh security fence to the boundary of the unit, this included a push to exit fire escape single leaf gate to the boundary.

We also installed Palisade Security Fencing along the boundary where security needed to be heightened in hot spot areas of the site.

The project also required a high security sliding gate with an opening of 9 meters and a height of 2.4m

Our gate was installed within a few hours of being delivered on one of our specialist hiab lorrys. Our Gates are installed to the latest health and safety guidelines to include devices which eliminates crushing, drawing and sheer points.

In front of the gates we installed automated rising arm barriers to control the flow of vehicles during peek time, again the barriers are equipped with the latest safety devices.

The barriers and gate are controlled by a duel height access control system which caters for both cars and lorry’s entering the unit. Visitors can enter by either a key fob or specking to reception via intercom system.

The project also included a timber knee rail around a drainage swale. This is both a decorative feature that also acts as a physical barrier.

The client also looked at our vast street furniture range but wanted something slightly different to the norm. We worked with the Architect to offer a bespoke Cycle Storage Shelter which could cater for the employees as well as visitors.

We also installed Refuse Bin Stores and Recycling Storage Units around the site.

On a building such as this the cladding is always exposed to impact from passing lorries and forklifts therefore to protect it we installed galvanised Armco Barrier around the building as well as Heavy Duty Bollards to each entrance.

South East Director, Richard Salmon writes

‘’ This was the one of the first projects Perimeter Fencing Solutions have worked alongside Readie construction.  The project was successfully handed over on time and within budget. A great effort from all the erectors and Engineers involved with the project’’
