The Client

Following our highly successful Bi-Fold gate project for Thames Valley Police earlier in summer 2020, we were asked to design and install a replacement automated gate system for another critical Thames Valley station. Again, we were to act as Principal Contractor, coordinating all other trades and services, including groundworks, Access Control and Electrical sub-contractors. 

The Brief

Over a tightly controlled 2-week program, we removed the old gates and automation system, carried out extensive groundworks (including a huge 900×1300 excavation for the gate control tower) and installed a new CEN9500HD Bi-Fold Gate System, complete with new thermoplastic lining, tarmac, mesh fencing infills and access pedestals. 

Work completed on site

The original gates

The existing vehicle gates and adjoining pedestrian gates are removed and the entrance stripped back completely

Excavation begins for the huge concrete pads required for our bi-fold gate control tower

The new bi-fold is fixed into place along with the pedestrian gate, and new 358 mesh infill panels

The end result

The completed project totally refreshes the existing entry point into the site, and provides a secure, compliant, reliable and fast acting security perimeter.
