Client: Network Rail 

 

Project overview: 

Installation of 2256m of fencing to replace and upgrade the current perimeter with 1094m chain link and 1162m of stock on wooden post. The project also needed to consider:  

  • Consultation with stakeholders such as the local community and work with boundary sharing landowners who needed to rotate sheep and cattle.   
  • Work within specific seasons to support planting and to mitigate flood risk  
  • Liaise with a Network Rail project team to minimise disruption to nesting birds 

 

Scope of works:

As with all our projects, the works were completed to our highest standards and worked within all the parameters outlined in ‘Health & Safety and Insurance’ section of this tender.  

  • Ecology survey completed with aspects of the work under the watch of Ecological Clark of Works – this was a result of Newt reports in the area   
  • Safe and effective removal of existing wire fencing, concrete posts, and debris  
  • Installation of 1.8m chain link and stoke fence with rabbit netting   
  • Planting including a mix of scrub, bramble and mature trees  

 

Added / social value: 

Our team noticed that a local landowner had poor fencing on their perimeter. Following a survey and report to Network Rail a price was agreed to extend the fence through that whole land owners property – a gesture that was greatly appreciated by the land owner.
