London Borough of Hillingdon
Dulok-6 SR1™ Double Wire high security panel system
The contract for design and build of three Uxbridge schools: Hillingdon Primary, Rabbsfarm Primary and John Loche Academy was to be a mix of new build and refurbishments, with a generic fence included in the design by the initial client architect.
There was a performance specification for perimeter security that met the needs of the London Borough of Hillingdon, and the requirements for the tender process.
CLD contacted the relevant companies at tender stage to ascertain the actual design objectives. Secured by Design was quickly identified as the main driver in all three projects.
As well as ensuring that a high standard of security is achieved in all areas of the school boundary and access points, Secured by Design also enables the contractor to claim BREEAM points to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating for the project.
The solution became very simple and obvious and Dulok-6 SR1™ Double Wire high security panel system was selected. Collaboration with all parties throughout the design and construction process led to the desired result. CLD Fencing looked at the projects as one job and answered all the requirements for the design objectives at an early stage.
The company then worked with the main contractor and a CLD-approved contractor to demonstrate the potential economies of scale that could be achieved by procuring all sites together.
When fencing for several sites is procured together and processed as a single factory order, all of the processes, from early manufacturing through to final delivery, are combined. This reduces time spent handling and at the numerous stages, creating direct savings that are passed back up the line.
This approach produced a win-win for all parties.
