Project Overview

United Utilities Group PLC (UU) is the largest publicly traded water company in the United Kingdom, providing water service to nearly 7,000,000 customers across 5 counties.

Between 2010 and 2015, UU spent almost £ 3.6 billion upgrading its services and infrastructure to meet increasing demands for reliability and standards.

As part of Asset Management Period 5 (AMP5), several Water Treatment Works required upgraded physical perimeter security to meet changing site security requirements. These strategic sites across the Northwest of England support the wider UU delivery and service network.

CLD Physical Security Systems collaborated with multiple Fencing Contractors, Project Leads, and UU Physical Security teams to design, manufacture, and supply a structure to cover the project plans.

The Brief

The project brief required all fencing and gate systems to provide the following features to meet current threat levels:

  • Anti-climb fencing systems
  • LPS 1175 SR2-rated fence and gate systems
  • Minimum guaranteed delay against attack
  • Swing and sliding gates rated to LPS 1175 SR2 to meet the demanding nature of the sites.
