Background

UK perimeter solutions manufacturer, Jacksons Fencing, has recently completed a project at Portsmouth Retail Park, the latest addition to Portsmouth City Council’s investment portfolio. The £17m development aims to generate up to £1m a year for local services, create jobs and contribute to the city’s revitalisation. Development and construction firm Simons Group undertook the 70,000 sq. ft. build while Jacksons Fencing won the tender to supply and install fencing and access control for the perimeter of the service areas and plant and bin stores.

A secure perimeter was important, as any disruption to the service areas would negatively impact day-to-day operations. Air conditioning units, loading areas and bin stores can be vulnerable to vandalism and anti-social behaviour, so protecting these areas against unauthorised access not only prevents accidents and theft, but also ensures operational efficiency and protecting businesses’ from financial loss and liability.

Solution

While the retail park and the stores within the development need protection, it is also a public space that depends on attracting shoppers, and so required a welcoming aesthetic. To fulfil these requirements, 100m of Jacksons EuroGuard® Regular fencing at 3m high was installed. Ideal for commercial properties, EuroGuard® Regular is able to secure the premises without appearing imposing or fortress-like. Its anti-climb design and vandal-proof panel to post fixings give the panels the strength and rigidity to effectively demark public and private spaces, deter potential intruders, or simply keep shoppers and young children out of harm’s way.

To provide efficient access for staff, delivery and service vehicles, Jacksons Fencing also installed two single leaf and four double leaf EuroGuard® swing gates, which seamlessly match the perimeter fencing.

Head of Commercial Sales at Jacksons Fencing Cris Francis comments: “Simons Group is one of the biggest names in retail construction and development, so this is a significant project for Jacksons, and testament to the high quality of our products and expertise of our team.”

Brian Hodgkin, Commercial Manager at Simons Group, adds: “It’s obviously crucial that our projects are properly secured and we were pleased to work together with Jacksons to ensure security on the Portsmouth Retail park was of the highest standard.”
