A 77 ton concrete perimeter secures vulnerable vacant site

Clearway was called in to secure a vacant site situated on the A5, north of Birmingham and south of Cannock, that had previously been a popular Indian restaurant and bar called Mannat.

Sadly, the mouth-watering smells of onion bhajis had long gone, and the one-acre site had since been purchased by Euro Garages, one of the UK’s fastest growing forecourt operators.

Unwelcomed Guests

Unfortunately, a vacant site of this size is susceptible to illegal occupation and it wasn’t long before trespassers had broken down the Heras fencing, taken up residency and set-off the site alarm.

After a lengthy eviction process which removed them from the site, we recommended our client have a more robust solution to stop it happening again. “Heras fencing – wire fencing made from galvanised steel on rubber blocks – is fine as a temporary solution to mark out land or use on a construction site,” said Hadleigh Carpenter, one of Clearway’s Key Account Directors who managed the project, “but it doesn’t provide proper security, whereas concrete blocks and barriers are both resilient and highly effective against the threat of illegal occupation.”

A Concrete Solution

So working with our suppliers, Clearway’s team erected 22 temporary vertical concrete barriers (TVCBs) at the entrance and exit to the site preventing vehicle access. Built to BS EN 1317 standard, our concrete barriers are available in multiple shapes and sizes and provide a highly effective solution to controlling vehicle access.

The whole process took 3-4 days, and we replaced the temporary alarm system too.

“The client knows that Clearway is an expert when it comes to vacant property solutions and perimeter protection,” said Hadleigh “and trusted us to offer a number of different solutions based on budget, risk and future use of the site.”
