Large Factory Boarding Up in Manchester

The Brief

We were contacted by Greater Manchester City Council to propose a solution to prevent vandalism to a large, vacant factory unit. With a large glass entrance and numerous doors and windows to protect, the council required a fast, cost effective way to protect the vacated property from both external and internal damage by local youths and vandals.

The Solution

With budget a key consideration, SafeSite Security Solutions recommended boarding up all doors and windows with timber. A cheaper option than steel boarding, timber boards not only protect glass windows from being smashed, but also prevent vandals gaining unlawful access inside the vacant property.

The Outcome

SafeSite Security Solutions arrived at the Bolton site on 16th April 2012, and within just four days our team of eight skilled technicians had boarded up the main large factory building including glass entrance, along with three smaller office buildings on the same site. Working with a supply of timber boards in a selection of thicknesses, the team cut each timber board to size on site to the exact dimensions of the doors and windows to ensure a perfect fit each and every time. The boards were then professionally installed to provide long term safety.

In the Future

SafeSite Security Solutions are continuing to work with Greater Manchester City Council, having been asked to provide quotations to secure further vacant sub stations on the factory site.
