Large flock of Feral Pigeon (Columba livia domestica) were entering the external grain distribution silo areas to feed on the abundant grain food source being offered as the large HGV vehicles load and unload.
This was resulting in a large accumulation of bulk feral pigeon faeces build-up hazardous to human health on and around the grain silos with a risk of livestock feed contamination. In places the grain silo gantry walkway to service the units was inaccessible due to the high level of historic bulk faeces which wass inches deep.
The main challenge our expert team had to overcome is that this is a 24 hour operation which large HGV vehicles constantly requiring access to the area to load and unload livestock grain feed
After a thorough site survey inspection, NBC designed and installed a complete Birdnet system to the underside external canopy above the grain silos and also to the external lift shaft of the silos. We also applied a Birdspike system to the upper area of the automated roller shutters in order to dent all further access to the area by feral pigeons.
Due to the complicated access and regular requirement to pause the project to allow the constant flow of HGV vehicles to complete their loading and unloading, the project was completed within the allocated time and also within the client budget without any disruption to the clients operational activities which if delayed could have financial implications.

“The team arrived on site and had the full PPE requirements including safety harnesses and barriers. They carried out the work in a very professional and friendly way. They even regularly stopped their own work to allow for the constant flow of wagons to load and unload, they did not even moan about it!!
They kept the staff informed of every stage of the project and even pointed out issue with the building that we were not aware of.
The gantry walkway is now safe, useable and is so very clean now, excellent work!!
We are very happy with the work and we feel that NBC went above and beyond the requirements by carrying out extra bits of work that we did not expect, other companies could learn from this professional approach.
We have no complaints at all from the whole experience and have nothing but admiration for the team, thank you NBC for a job very well done!!”
