Artistic hoardings around construction sites are giving the local community some creative pleasure.

With so much building work going on at the moment, local business and community’s patience is running out. Construction site hoardings are a health and safety requirement and often used as an effective marketing tool for the developers. However some considerate developers are ditching the advertising hoardings to create a bit of art to the area.

As the artwork has no advertising, it falls outside the Class 8: “Advertising on hoardings around temporary construction sites.”

This artistic hoarding we produced for well known developer Knowles UK,

Considered one for the leading authorities in basement construction. Knowles being a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme wanted to enhance this small Mews in Knightsbridge, London, by producing a creative and artistic hoarding.

Creative Director Paul Benewith designed this artistic hoarding and scaffold wrap keeping the artwork simple but effective. The illustration design covers both the lower wooden safely hoarding and onto the scaffolding area producing a typical London Mews house design.

This type of artistic hoarding and scaffold wrap has little commercial value but does cover the otherwise unsightly construction site.

Project Print Management is not the only company producing artistic hoardings.

Financial Times 

“Construction sites are generally associated with towering cranes, dust, noise and faceless hoardings. Increasingly however property developers and local authorities are making use of the blank walls around the perimeter of construction sites in an effort to improve the often very tense relationships with local business and community.”

Royal Academy 

“In 2018, our two buildings, Burlington House on Piccadilly and 6 Burlington Gardens, will be joined into one major venue designed by David Chipperfield RA. As Burlington Gardens is covered by scaffolding, we spotted a chance for some public art – and even better, a chance for some young artists to exhibit for the very first time”

Considerate Constructors Scheme 

“Last year saw the launch of the competition whereby construction sites invited local schools and children’s groups to participate in decorating their hoardings. Events were organised over the summer months, where children could let their imagination run wild as they decorated site hoardings based on their chosen theme.”
