manufacturer,
Jacksons
Fencing,
has
recently
completed a project at Portsmouth
Retail Park, the latest addition to
Portsmouth
City
Council’s
investment portfolio. The £17m
development aims to generate up to
£1m a year for local services, create
jobs and contribute to the city’s
revitalisation. Development and
construction firm Simons Group
undertook the 70,000 sq. ft. build
while Jacksons Fencing won the
tender to supply and install fencing
and access control for the perimeter
of the service areas and plant and bin
stores.
A secure perimeter was important, as
any disruption to the service areas
would negatively impact day-to-day
operations. Air conditioning units,
loading areas and bin stores can be
vulnerable to vandalism and anti-social
behaviour, so protecting these areas
against unauthorised access not only
prevents accidents and theft, but also
ensures operational efficiency and
protecting businesses’ from financial
loss and liability.

While the retail park and the stores
within the development need protection,
it is also a public space that depends on
attracting shoppers, and so required a
welcoming aesthetic. To fulfil these
requirements, 100m of Jacksons
EuroGuard® Regular fencing at 3m high
was installed. Ideal for commercial
properties, EuroGuard® Regular is able
to secure the premises without
appearing imposing or fortress-like. Its
anti-climb design and vandal-proof panel
to post fixings give the panels the
strength and rigidity to effectively
demark public and private spaces, deter
potential intruders, or simply keep
shoppers and young children out of
harm’s way.
To provide efficient access for staff,
delivery and service vehicles, Jacksons
Fencing also installed two single leaf
and four double leaf EuroGuard® swing
gates, which seamlessly match the
perimeter fencing.

Fencing Cris Francis comments:
“Simons Group is one of the biggest
names in retail construction and
development, so this is a significant

Brian Hodgkin, Commercial Manager at

crucial that our projects are properly
secured and we were pleased to work
together with Jacksons to ensure
security on the Portsmouth Retail park
was of the highest standard.”
