Background

With two decades of experience, Kent-based property developer Quinn Estates has gained an excellent reputation through the building of exceptional residential and commercial properties using innovative means and expert contractors, architects and engineers. Established as the most proactive mixed-use developer in the South East, they have a focus on delivering jobs, homes, game-changing infrastructure and exceptional community gains.

A project in a rural location near Sandwich, Kent involved a creative restoration of a former engine shed to provide five spacious homes that boast a high-spec contemporary interior, while retaining the character and appeal of the original building. Part of the wider Hammill Park development, the engine shed is one of two that have been transformed to create these historic and intriguing homes and office space.

A key focus of the development was sustainability, with the houses being heated through the use of air source heat pumps, satisfying the company’s commitment to adopting green technology. To complete each new home, fencing was needed to divide the gardens and surround the perimeter.

Solution

To fit with the environmental requirements of the project, Jacksons Fencing was chosen for its sustainable properties including a 25-year guarantee, and timber from well-managed, traceable sources.

The developers opted for Featherboard fence panels; a timeless style of fencing that satisfies the need for privacy with its simple, solid design. Featherboard fence panels were partly chosen for their ease of installation; fitting into slotted Jakposts to create a strong and secure garden fence. All fixings used throughout are stainless steel, ensuring that no unsightly rust will appear over time, while the colour of the softwood timber complements the red brick exterior of the houses and provides an elegant finish. Matching single-leaf gates were also installed to create secure access to each garden.

Using high-quality fencing with a long guarantee provides an added selling point and reassurance for buyers, and reassures the developer that their investment and reputation is covered.
