Eric Wright Case Study – Energy Coast University

Energy Coast University Technical College
Eric Wright
Greensteel™ hoarding
As part of a £6 million project to build a new technical workshop for Energy Coast University Technical College in Workington; Eric Wright chose Fast Fence’s Greensteel sustainable hoarding solution for the main compound and in-ground Anti-climb system for the perimeter of the large scale project. The project was scheduled to run over 12 months, and Eric Wright wanted a truly durable and low maintenance hoarding solution; which would not require replacing or repainting.

Fast Fence supplied and installed over 121m of Greensteel, no-dig, hoarding, including a 6m vehicle gate and pedestrian gate to effectively manage site access. A total of 581m of in-ground Anti-climb fencing with additional vehicle gates and pedestrian gates was also used. All designed to site-specific wind loading calculations.

Greensteel is manufactured from the highest quality, environmentally friendly materials and is seen as a sustainable and superior product over traditional timber-based hoarding.

The project went smoothly and Fast Fence will be working with Eric Wright again in the future. Tom Richardson, Project Manager for Eric Wright was happy with both the Greensteel solution and Fast Fence in particular.

‘The system and design is to a high standard and has been done to suit the site budget… The site fitters worked in extreme temperatures to overcome an ordering delay to get the site secure in the timescale required. Mike the site foreman was very accommodating and easy to get along with. Dan the contracts manager identified some defects and had them rectified even though the issue wasn’t important to the site team. Overall a good project and we have already enquired for another scheme.’
