Our works are not restricted to older buildings but also include many new builds where aesthetics and balanced proofing
measures are just as important;
‐ Prevention is better than cure.
Why spend all that time and effort designing a building in partnership with your client, then seeing it through to completion
with the contractor only to find birds then decide to make to their home.
The Port Arcades development at Ellesmere Port needed an unobtrusive level of proofing against pigeons. Our sprung wire
system using stick‐on posts was used to proof the leading edges of the parapets and to the large Brise Soleil fins.
Loughborough University had previously suffered from pigeon problems on the campus so when they built their new Bio Energy
Research Facility less obtrusive areas were proofed with our pigeon spike system knowing it would provide a better level of
protection where it was needed most.
The Terracotta Projections on the IMH Building at Nottingham University have been proofed using multiple rows of our sprung
wire system. Without the proofing the building was highly likely to have developed a pigeon problem in the future, which would
have resulted the expense of removing the resultant bird fouling, and the difficulties and expense of accessing this area once the
building was in use and the grounds had been landscaped.
