Hoarding's role is always to keep the public away from the active area of a construction site. A "live" commercial site demands additional considerations. When ISG asked Perimeters to provide hoarding for their refurbishment of the Morrisons at Plymstock, assurance that the end clients' business could continue as normal was built in.
An especially rigorous approach must be taken to managing risks of the public interface at a "live" commercial site. The assumption has to be that members of the public will be present in close proximity throughout the installation, use... View More
Site hoarding, why is it needed?
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is the law that governs the obligations of anybody undertaking setting up a construction site. No work is permitted to take place on a site until a secure barrier is in place around the site. Such a barrier must enable enforcement of controlled entry to a site, in such a way as to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that persons other than themselves or their employees are not exposed to risks to their health or safety. Why is... View More
Marketing your project requires impactful graphics. Keeping them looking that way requires robust hoarding especially when you're in an exposed location.
Midas Construction Limited came to Perimeters with a project in a very exposed location, Fitzroy Apartments located on top of the coastal cliffs at Falmouth. But as important as being able to withstand the full force the Atlantic winds, the development needed to maintain a prestigious appearance throughout the build.

For developers having safe hoarding and fencing is essential. Reputations rest on safety. Injuries need to be avoided. Safe fencing requires the right partner.
Who's liable? It could be you
Perimeters takes the duty to provide safe fencing seriously. Others don't. Recent distressing scenes of a fence collapse at Carrickfergus show what can go wrong. The wrong fencing partner was chosen.
A developer rents temporary fencing
Fencing delivered to site and installed with site labour. It will be the developer who is liable if anything goes wrong.

At Priory Community School, Kier Construction presented Perimeters with a challenge: complete hoarding for a 500m boundary over the school Easter break. Time was short, but standards must be kept high. Perimeters re-usable hoarding was the right solution at Super.
The installation was designed, verified and assembled. The team and materials arrived on site within two weeks of receiving the order.
School returns, site secured and pupils safe
After only 10 working days on site the full 540 metres of temporary boundary was completed. This included the installation of 6 fully galvanised vehicle gates,... View More
Hoarding for Premier Inn
Opening day nears. Soon the new Premier Inn at Gonvena Hill in Wadebridge will welcome its first guests. Before they arrive, the site's temporary fencing will be dismantled. Nothing will remain, except the pride of the team having supported the development of this convenient facility for travellers visiting beautiful North Cornwall. The hoarding for Premier Inn Wadebridge was supplied and installed by Perimeters.
Perimeters worked with developer Midas to supply and install the temporary fencing that protected the site over the last 10 months.
Re-usable hoarding was installed... View More
When planning site fencing, it's important to look at all the available options. Site fencing rental would be the most advantageous choice for many users.
What's wrong with the traditional timber hoarding, purchased outright for the life of a site? Is your site fencing going to be in place for a year or more? Timber boards combined with British weather, can leave your fencing in need of a fix up that may go well beyond a coat of paint.
Moldy and in need of bracing, that's timber hoarding

Because CG Fry takes the long view, they chose Perimeters re-usable hoarding for their Nansledan development in 2015. And that fitted in with the long term perspective shaping the Nansledan.
Perimeters installed the hoarding and gates that formed CG Fry's original site compound. But with 2018 upon us, CG Fry again called on Perimeters, this time to re-position their compound.
Reusable hoarding is the responsible choice
How much better Perimeters' system copes with wind and weathering than timber hoarding was an important factor in the original choice. With the need to move the... View More
Managing hoarding wind loads is a key challenge for any site that requires securing. With more than 10 years' experience in construction site hoarding in Cornwall, Perimeter's has proven again and again it is up to that challenge.
According to Met Office data, Cornwall lifts the crown as England's windiest county. In fact with average wind speeds being between 10 and 20 knots, 80% of the county has higher average wind speeds than England's windiest city, Liverpool (average wind speed 11.8 knots).
Calm isn't a word that springs to mind considering the... View More
