These days every construction site has a temporary construction fence installed. Fence design is often given little attention because the main focus is the actual project, not the temporary construction fence. Often the task is delegated to the project superintendent, project manager or the temporary fence construction installation contractor. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
- How long will the temporary construction fence be required on site?
- How will access to the site be impacted by the temporary construction fence?
- What type of preparation will be required before the temporary construction fence contractor can install the fence?
- Will some type of screening be required on the temporary construction fence?
- What type of gates will be required to access the construction site?
- Will installation of the temporary construction fence impact pedestrians who use the sidewalks around the construction site?
- Have you provided a large enough area to accommodate stored materials?
- Does the location of the temporary construction fence block the view of traffic at intersections or traffic entering the construction site?
- Will the temporary construction fence contractor set the fence on stands or can it be driven in to the ground?
- Are any public or private utilities buried on site that will effect installation of the temporary construction fence?
- Does your permit allow for temporary construction fence, if so are you allowed the close sidewalks or driveway?
As you can see, identifying your temporary construction fence design raises many interesting questions that must be answered before your temporary construction fence contractor may begin installation.
