Background

Eric Wright Group provides construction, civil engineering, property development and facilities management services to a wide range of sectors, including industrial, education, renewable energy, reservoirs, water management and rail.

Requirement

The Group worked with an education client on the build of new student accommodation at St George’s Quay in Lancaster. In the early construction stages, it became evident that two site boundaries, separated by a road, needed to be secured to deter and prevent unauthorised access, and reduce the risk of vandalism, theft or endangerment.

Eric Wright Group had a very short time-frame to install a demarcation solution in order to remain on track with the project, so not only needed a high-quality and effective solution but needed a supplier that could act quickly.

Solution

Barkers Fencing was introduced to the Group through Wallbank Fencing Ltd, an installation contractor, and subsequently recommended the VGuard mesh fencing system as a better alternative to frequently used timber hoarding boundaries to lower the upfront cost. More importantly for building sites – which rapidly evolve as building progresses – mesh can be easily dismantled and re-used either on site, or at other projects.

Eric Wright Group requested 637m of VGuard, which was delivered and installed within two weeks. The panels and posts were powder-coated in black and orange – their corporate colours – at Barkers' Staffordshire plant.

Outcome

The Group, its employees and the surrounding public have the peace of mind that the site perimeter is secure from encroachment and that health and safety requirements are met.
