Challenge

The Commonwealth Games are international, multi-sport events held every four years for athletes from Commonwealth nations. The Commonwealth is an association of independent sovereign states spread over every continent and ocean. The Commonwealth’s two billion people make up 30% of the world’s population and come from many faiths, races, languages, cultures and traditions.

Commonwealth Games delivery partners looked to the largest supplier of perimeter fencing protection to the London 2012 Olympics to secure Glasgow 2014.

Selex ES, the Finmeccanica subsidiary, was awarded the prestigious contract in 2013 as the Protective Perimeter Security provider for the Games and shortly thereafter appointed Zaun.

Selex ES provided a wide range of physical security measures to secure over 20 Games venues at Glasgow 2014, including the Commonwealth Games Village for athletes.

Solution

Zaun’s first involvement came in 2008, shortly after Glasgow was announced as the winning city. After many months of informal discussions with the Games' interested partners, Chris Plimley, Zaun's High Security Systems Sales Manager, worked together with the bid teams of the potential delivery partners who answered the ITT.

Almost £4 million of contracts were awarded to integrated high-security perimeter event overlay specialist Zaun to design, manufacture, install and decommission a broad range of temporary high-security fencing systems across the Glasgow 2014 sites, including Tier One venues.

Glasgow Games procurers ordered several thousand metres of two of Zaun's principal temporary high-security fencing systems, hundreds of vehicle and pedestrian gates to suit each system, and bespoke above ground and system-mounted CCTV columns incorporated into the fencing lines.

Zaun supplied several thousand metres of its MultiFence and award-winning RDS systems at heights of 3 and 2.4m, with sections fitted with Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) enhancements.

Plimley said: “MultiFence was chosen because of the very cramped footprint around most Games venues and the ultra tight timescales for installation and post-Games removal. Also, we have gathered vast amounts of experience in delivering time-critical projects, and MultiFence can be upgraded with a temporary HVM measure without the need for foundations.”

Outcome

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games brought together thousands of elite athletes, friendly volunteers and excited spectators to join an incredible festival of sport and culture.
