Secured by Design Utility Project Fencing


Speller Metcalfe Malvern Ltd

Project Type




The Background

Procter Contracts was chosen by Speller Metcalfe Malvern Ltd to supply and install Secured by Design fencing and gates for Western Power Distribution’s new £10.5 million depot in Swansea. The project involved the construction of a garage facility and refurbishment of existing buildings for offices and storage, requiring comprehensive perimeter security fencing.

The Solution

Procter Contracts’ ability to provide a complete turnkey service in perimeter protection, from initial surveys to installation, played a crucial role in securing the contract. Working closely with Speller Metcalfe Malvern, we designed a system from the SR Fencing and Gate range that offered guaranteed delay against attacks while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Comprehensive Fencing and Gates:
Procter Contracts supplied and installed over 270 linear meters of Ultimate Extra SR1 fencing, meeting LPS1175 SR1 and Secured by Design accreditation. The system featured 6mm heavy-duty wire panels with a narrow spacing to deter climbing. The hidden fixing system and security posts enhanced the strength and security of the fencing. Complementary SR1 gates were also installed on-site.

Overcoming Challenges:
Despite the complexities of the project and the COVID-19 pandemic, Procter Contracts successfully responded to the specifications, designs, and scheduling requirements. Adhering to strict timelines, we minimized project risks and implemented comprehensive COVID-19 management procedures. Careful planning and scheduling ensured efficient installation while minimizing disruptions to the live environments.

Thanks to the collaborative efforts with Speller Metcalfe Malvern and meticulous planning, the Western Power Distribution project was completed on time, within budget, and to the satisfaction of the client.
