Royal Holloway, University of London

PGSD Limited was asked by ARJ Construction Ltd to help with a project at Royal Holloway, University of London. The project comprised a Boiler House Cafe and International Building refurbishment.

The PGSD project remit included: design, supply and install a high level fence / barrier to ensure the area is safe from potential falls, given the height of the retaining sleeper walls around the parking bay. The fence needed to be fit for purpose, as ‘in fitting’ as possible within the surroundings. In addition, it had to be a cost effective solution.

Our solution was to supply and install 150mm x 150mm posts fixed 750mm down the sleeper wall, with integral 48mm galvanised key clamp poles in the posts and two rails. This ticked all of the boxes and the client was very happy with the result.

Royal Holloway, University of London, is ranked in the top 30 of all UK universities.

Grovelands Park project for Enfield Council

PGSD Limited has been working on a project in Grovelands Park, Broadwalk, North London for Enfield Council. The project comprised fencing and planting works.

The area in question is to the rear of houses, situated at the end of the park, as pictured above. The area had become run down and attracted littering. To alleviate this, PGSD fenced an area off using four foot high chestnut fencing and round posts, approximately 4.5 metres along a concrete retaining wall, eight metres out along the path and 4.5 metres back into the area.

We repaired the fence at the end of the area and supplied and planted 10 square metres by the retaining wall and the path near the bridge with three shrubs per square metre, using a 50-50 mix of Hawthorne and Holly. Originally a private estate, Grovelands Park is Grade II listed on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
