The definition of a hoarding is basically a fencing system used to enclose a building site whilst construction works take place. They are typically temporary solid fence panels which are made from timber, metal or composite panels. Hoardings are installed around the perimeter of a building site and have vehicle and/or pedestrian access points. Their primary function is to keep the site secure, but many are used as temporary signage boards to keep the public aware of what’s behind them. Site hoardings are also used to maintain the privacy of the site and therefore the clients’ interests safe.
All of our equipment is delivered to site on our own Hi-ab lorries and our drivers are fully trained for Hi-ab operation, slinging and off loading operations. We provide full risk assessments, COSHH assessments, method statements and a lifting plan if required.
Before our operatives begin installation, a full survey of the hoarding line is conducted using Cat scanning equipment to ensure that no services will be struck once drilling / excavation commences. This is part of our costs and is carried out as part of our duty of care.
There are several ways of installing the hoarding, depending on the type of existing ground.
