Construction Hoarding

Construction hoarding is temporary wooden structures which form a crucial component of building site safety. Adding construction hoarding helps to protect against unauthorised visitors while also improving on-site health and safety. Typically set up on the perimeters of building sites, hoarding construction exteriors can be used to display advertisements when used in a public place.

Construction site hoarding is an essential element of even the most exclusive bespoke site hoardings. Timber hoarding fences are included to support and protect the integrity of a building site. Providing a solid foundation to all development hoarding, the wooden panels offer a reliable security system. The building hoarding panels are an ideal safety solution for anyone looking to create a long-lasting perimeter around their site.

Building hoardings are cost-effective and shield the work from the public eye. If you’re looking to put wooden hoardings around a construction site, our team are on hand to lend our expertise and provide a quote. We will also match your desired design, resulting in a visually pleasing and dependable structure which keeps your site safe and hidden away from prying eyes.

Temporary Hoarding & Heras Site Fencing

Temporary site fencing are commonplace when a building site is at the very beginning or end of its development. This temporary hoarding is a cost-effective solution which sits on the ground and offers moderate site security whilst remaining mobile if necessary. Heras fencing is another alternative which may be more suitable to screen off an area temporarily. Lavastar and Panthera can brand these fencing panels up with mesh printed banners to ensure your site is still getting the relevant message out to passers by.

FAQs & More Information

Why Is Hoarding Important In The Construction Site?

Hoarding in the construction site is important as it keeps all the top of the range equipment of a typical building site safe and secure. This equipment is often worth a lot of money, and construction site hoarding represents an effective protective measure to help prevent financial loss. Our building signage will deter potential thieves, providing a barrier between the public and your project. Adept at keeping unauthorised people away from the site, security hoardings are a worthwhile investment for any building site.

Site perimeter boarding protects finances, the public, and ensures you adhere to relevant health and safety requirements. By creating an effective barrier, wooden site hoardings reduce the likelihood of injury from falling objects and vehicles. The importance of construction hoarding can’t be understated and it’s crucial that this is implemented correctly. Our bespoke installation service ensures that your project is adequately protected.

Adding hoarding on site takes care of legal requirements around building site health and safety. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 implies that a building site requires a protective barrier between itself and the public. Similarly, the Construction Regulations 2015 overtly orders that unauthorised access to building sites must be prohibited. With fencing hoarding in place, your site will have taking all necessary precautions before commencing work.

Do Site Hoardings Require Planning Permission?

Planning permission for construction site hoardings depends on which type you are opting for and whether you choose to include a graphic design. Typically, a plain timber site hoarding does not require planning permission. However, a design check certificate may be required from a qualified individual.

For creative construction hoarding and building site panels with advertisements,current ruling legislation states that they must quality for ‘deemed consent’. Should printed construction hoarding meet this criteria, there would be no need for planning permission.

In the event that your site hoarding design does require planning permission, Lavastar will take care of the application process. As part of our construction service, we are happy to apply for planning permission on your behalf.

What Are Construction Site Hoardings Made From?

Each construction site hoarding is made from sustainable wood. The timber hoarding panels are tailor-made for each project, offering an ethically sourced, bespoke service each time. To finish off, we recommended painting the wood to ensure weather-protection of the natural product as well as an enhanced lifespan.

Are Site Hoardings Temporary Works?

Site hoarding are ‘temporary works’ as they are removed once construction is completed. It is a short-term solid structure which encases the perimeter of the building site. As a form of temporary fencing, construction site hoarding is used as a security measure.
