The National Power Grid is currently undertaking the massive
project of upgrading the powerlines across the UK.
This is to ensure the current service is maintained and that future demands can be met. Avantgarde has been involved in securing sites across the UK from London and Southampton to the north of England and even into Scotland.
Due to the nature of the work being carried out, these projects can be varied and often challenging. Many sites are rural, isolated and without facilities. Other challenges come by way of bigger areas of risk including large power stations and substations which often contain large amounts of copper wiring. With each site being very different from the last, Avantgarde has embraced the challenges and met them head on.
The majority of the sites have been provided with SIA trained and licensed manned guard services along with welfare facilities. Larger sites that contain high value assets are assigned multiple guards who are deployed to ensure sufficient cover is provided.
CCTV towers are also deployed on a number of sites which are not suited to a manned guard presence.
Avantgarde has risen to the challenges that such a large project brings, and has provided the flexible, reliable service required.
