Case Study 1 – Installation of Bird Deterrent System
Pigeons were roosting on girders under the canopy of a loading bay of a prestigious company in Havant. Not only do bird droppings cause a health hazard, being infested with disease-causing organisms, but they create slip hazards, are unsightly and can cause ongoing damage to the fabric of a building.
A bird deterrent system was needed to create an impenetrable barrier to deny pigeons and other pest birds from roosting and nesting in the building.
Our client, Sumika Polymer Compounds (UK) Ltd, part of a worldwide business supplying excellence in the field of high performance thermoplastic engineering compounds, wanted a solution that would be successful, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing.
There was restricted access under the canopy and also the presence of electric hoists and fall arrest systems.
With knowledge, experience and understanding of what the task involved, 1st Choice High Level Cleaning & Maintenance were able to install a bird deterrent system of the highest grade materials, which blended into the fabric of the building and delivered the desired results.
Using Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), man safe systems and pressure washers they were able to clean the area and safely install the bird netting, which acts as the best solution for high infestations and immediately rids buildings of all unwanted bird species.
Sumika Polymer Compounds (UK) Ltd’s Health & Safety Advisor, John White said that the work was carried out with the minimum disruption to normal working practices.
“1st Choice handled the entire project very well and we have no hesitation in using them for services in the future.
“They are quick to respond; quick to quote and familiar with our working practices. They carry out all the proper safety procedures and always do a good job for us.”
