HS2 Ltd is developing guidance and design principles to support the HS2 supply chain in successfully integrating fencing within the broader design for HS2.
At a meeting in September, the panel welcomed the work done to date by the team. It stressed that this work offers an opportunity to celebrate fencing and to make a step change in the industry. The way the project addresses fencing can support the aspirations of the HS2 Design Vision, as well as those for HS2’s Sustainability Approach and Landscape Design Approach. The panel highlighted the need for the work done to date to form part of a process that should focus on influencing conversations and decision making across HS2.
Inez Pavia is a Senior Architect with over seven years’ experience. She has focused on transport and infrastructure since 2018, when she joined Weston Williamson + Partners to work on HS2.
“I am very pleased to be helping HS2 Ltd to develop guidance and design principles for fencing. This work will support design teams in delivering creative and integrated designs able to meet functional requirements and be responsive to context and place, including integrating with other designed HS2 elements. It can also help ensure design teams consider aspects such as the while life carbon footprint of fencing.
The panel have been a helpful critical friend, allowing us to draw on their experience, including from the project to date, to inform our thinking and ultimately support HS2 designers to develop high quality, sustainable and efficient solutions.”
