CG Fry asked themselves what would be the right site hoarding solution for their Poundbury Pavillion Yard development? They approached Perimeters for the answer for their Poundbury site hoarding. Poundbury is shaped by the principles of architecture and urban planning as advocated by HRH The Prince of Wales. The reusable plastic site hoarding installed in CG Fry's brand colours provides a bold statement of quality. But re-usable hoarding is also reflective of the standards of the development in other ways.

Interserve needed their Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital site up and running in time for Xmas. The wise men at Perimeters were ready to fulfill these Exeter hoarding requirements. Perimeters needed less than 4 weeks to make this delivery. The site preparing the way for new mother and baby unit was ready for Xmas.
Existing street lighting and other services fall within the site boundary. So no digging is possible near the site boundary. This wasn't a problem for Perimeters' hoarding, even on this sloping site. Perimeters deployed its kentledge solution.... View More
A picture is worth a 1000 words. Timber hoarding weathers, distorts and buckles. Timber often needs repainting or having boards replaced. Perimeters' hoarding doesn't weather. Instead it stays true throughout the life of a site.
In the picture, we see a site neighbouring Perimeters' site for Steve Hoskin Groundworks at PL2. The laminated wood board is looking the worse for British weather after only a few months. Even after years, Perimeters' hoarding will stay true.

When considering hoarding, it pay to think about the whole package. Smart gates = Smart site. Gates set the tone for a site. Perimeters now exclusively installs fully galvanised gates. Galvanised gates look smarter on installation. But they also stay looking smart throughout the life of your site. A smart gate combined with the smooth surface of Perimeters' hoarding sets the tone for a site. So when you think about hoarding, also ensure you have your gates galvanised.

Bell mouth entrance at St Mewan Lane Trewoon
The Perimeters' team created an elegant "bell mouth" site entrance for client Gilbert and Goode for their St Mewan Lane site at Trewoon neat St Austell. Perimeters hoarding is very much more adaptable than traditional timber hoarding, so following a curve is no problem. At Trewoon a 5m galvanized mesh gate secured the site whilst keeping up appearances.

It's well known, kids and construction sites shouldn't mix. That's where the right hoarding solution comes in. It's not only the welfare of children that's at stake. The liability and reputation of the construction firm is also at stake. But urgent needs can put kids in close proximity to construction. In Plymouth Hoarding has traditionally meant timber. However timber hoarding deteriorates and splinters as it weathers. Steve Hoskin Construction were looking for something more sensitive to the surroundings of the work they undertook in PL2.
To start with Steve Hoskin Construction googled "Plastic Hoarding" where they... View More
