When Bardsley Construction Ltd started work on a new project that included the famous Crowther Street in Stockport they turned to CLD Fencing Systems' Approved Contractor Scheme member Wallbank Fencing Ltd to provide them with an innovative temporary fencing solution to protect the historical aspects of the area.
Crowther Street, just off Hillgate in the heart of Stockport’s town centre, was made famous with L. S. Lowry's oil painting in 1930 titled ‘A Street in Stockport – Crowther Street’. The scene depicts Crowther Street's steps and railings with buildings on either side and is filled with his typical matchstick people.
The street was originally demolished as part of slum clearances in the area, but was later rebuilt in a heritage style. Since then, it has been a major attraction for the town due to its link to L. S. Lowry, who was a regular visitor to Stockport and depicted large areas of the town in his many paintings.
The challenge faced by Wallbank Fencing required a solution that would offer site safety for the Bardsley Construction site and pedestrians, as well as providing a secure compound and site area. In certain areas no ground penetration or heavy traffic was permitted in order to prevent damage to the cobbled areas that make the street so special. It was also vital that the fencing system fitted in with Bardsley Construction's brand image and so had to match their company colour palette.
The end result was a bespoke fencing package that covered both ground dug and zero ground strike systems from CLD Fencing Systems' range, covering almost half a kilometre of fencing.
The systems included:
Wallbank Fencing completed all work on site within 2 weeks to help keep the project on time and on budget. Another historical site has been protected by FenceSafe.
