Government Fence Contracting
With the thousands of government buildings and properties across the country, hiring personnel to protect these areas is a waste of both time and resources. Instead, installing a high security fence can accomplish the same task for just a fraction of the cost.
Since government properties vary so greatly, the types of fences each premises requires will obviously vary. For instance:
Administrative buildings will need fences that allow easy access to the public
Intelligence and military buildings require high security fencing
Government-owned land requires a low security barrier
When looking for contractors, government agencies should keep their needs in mind and select a fencing company that can fulfill all of their needs. Choosing one contractor to complete every fencing job is both more cost efficient and more time efficient.
Additionally, it is important to pick a company that understands governmental regulations. Since government codes are very strict and specific for government owned properties, choosing a company that already has a firm grasp on the expectations is vital to the process.
Many fencing companies also design the fencing schemes that they will install on their clients’ properties, and this should be no different for government contracts. It is important to ask for examples of previous work on similar properties to ensure that the company that gets the contract will be up to the task.
Finally, it is usually favorable to choose a local company to handle the fence installation for several reasons. For one, a local company will be familiar with the local zoning laws and will be aware of other problems that may arise. Using a local company often means a quicker job, as well.
