“RSS Infrastructure installed a combination of fencing solutions designed for low maintenance combined with high levels of security and longevity on all three sites.”
Dave Bamford, Head of Construction & Civils
RSS Infrastructure supplied and installed metal fencing and gates that were galvanized and powder-coated to match the existing fencing at Iver, Langley, and Taplow Stations. The project involved removing and reinstating the existing fencing, followed by the installation of new fencing at all three locations.
- Removal and reinstate existing fencing
- Supply and installation of new palisade fencing
- Galvanise and powder coat to match
- Resurface hard standing areas affected
- Installation of fatality prevention fencing for the protection of the public
The Civils and Construction Division of RSS Infrastructure has recently completed the installation of new metal palisade fencing and gates at three stations, namely Iver Station, Taplow Station, and Langley Stations. The project involved removing and reinstating existing fencing followed by supplying and installing new fencing at all three locations. The galvanized and powder-coated fencing was designed to match the existing fencing and manufactured to the highest standards. It offered excellent value for money and highly effective as security fencing. Palisade fencing, known for its inherent strength and high damage resistance, was considered the best option for perimeter protection. Additionally, RSS Infrastructure gave careful thought to the location of existing and new signage, which was installed as agreed with the client.
In addition to the palisade fencing, RSS Infrastructure also installed new fatality prevention fencing across all three locations. By working closely with the client, RSS Infrastructure was able to advise on the strategic placement of the fencing between platforms to ensure complete protection for the public.
The fencing consisted of a vertical bar railing system and was painted to match each platform as per the client’s request. After the fencing was installed, the hard surfaces were reinstated accordingly.
During the project, RSS Infrastructure set up pedestrian management barriers for the protection of the public when working on active platforms. This allowed RSS Infrastructure to work collaboratively with other contractors in a safe and controlled manner. All staff members received public interface training to ensure the highest level of service not only to the client but also to the public. The fencing installation took 28 weeks and was delivered within the time and budgetary requirements.
RSS Infrastructure provided the client with real-time insight via a mobile app that provided shift reports while on site. These reports included visual evidence of the works and were uploaded into cloud storage for multiple users to gain access.
