Seagull Deterrent Systems for new ILS2 building at Swansea University
Swansea University have just taken possession of The Institute of Life Sciences Building no 2 - known as ILS2 - constructed by Leadbitter
Eco Environmental Services Ltd, South Wales’ premier bird deterrent installer, won the contract to install high level anti seagull and pigeon netting on the new build project for the University.
The large number of gulls established in this seaside city means there are constant bird problems, such as seagulls attacking members of the public near their nesting sites. In addition, bulk fouling, nesting material and dead chicks blocking up roof top drainage systems often lead to costly internal flooding issues.
The university took the initiative to include important bird control works during initial construction of the block and employed their Main Contractor Leadbitter to seek out the best seagull deterrent systems balanced with the most competitive proposal. We were chosen based on our extensive report providing the best bird deterrent solution and value for money.
Subsequently, Leadbitter then appointed us to undertake an internal clean of the atrium before the building was handed over to the University. Here, we utilised one of our fully trained IRATA abseil teams to undertake the work professionally and safely. The photo attached shows the cleaned atrium awaiting handover.
Leadbitter commented: “I would like to say your company Eco Environmental have been a very good subcontractor for us on our £16million ILS2 project
Your high level internal rope access works, bird netting and pigeon cull works were well organised and executed. We were pleased that your operatives were appropriately trained, acted professionally and were good to deal with. Thanks for being flexible with us on moving various dates and giving us guidance where required.
I will give our QS’s your details on my future projects.”
The project was completed in time and in budget.
