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.
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 completed gates
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.
