Falconry for Construction & Building Site Projects
Keep Your Building Project On Track
For major construction projects running to tight deadlines, delays caused by pigeons and other birds taking up residence before the building is fully sealed, can be a very real and expensive problem.
In particular, pigeons find ingenious ways to enter open construction site buildings through the smallest gaps. The internal ledges, ducting, roof cavities and crevices offer ideal nesting locations to rear their young. Due to the protection all birds are afforded by the law, pigeons can and will cause significant delays to your project plans if not addressed at an early stage.
Not only this, but bird droppings (guano) can present slip hazards to your workforce as well as respiratory problems should the dry dust be inhaled, so increasing the risk of work-related injuries impacting your RIDDOR safety record. DEFRA/Natural England legislation states that non-lethal measures must always be attempted and maintained where practicable, before any lethal action can be taken and only then where there is a risk to public health and safety.
