Digitally printing a life-size photograph of building façades on scaffold scrims is a great way to conceal scaffolding during construction or renovation work.
This concealing scaffolding scrim was digitally printed
onto a mesh PVC and installed on the famous Harley Street, London renowned for its private doctors and hospitals. A total size of 15 meter high x 21m wide
As with much of London keeping up appearances is important which is why this high end medical practise needed to conceal the scaffolding whilst renovation work is carried out on the old building.
Using a high resolution camera, photos were taken of the Victorian buildings and artworked so when printed the scaffolding scrim are life-size and visually accurate. Typically when we arrived to take the photos there were many cars parked in front of the building. Our specialist scaffold scrim designer had to Photoshop the cars out of the image.
Project Print Management supplied and installed a sub-frame to the existing scaffolding structure which the concealing scaffolding scrim was wrapped an tensioned onto.

Since the 19th century, the number of doctors, hospitals, and medical organizations in and around Harley Street has greatly increased. Records show that there were around 20 doctors in 1860, 80 by 1900, and almost 200 by 1914. Today, there are more than 3,000 people employed in the Harley Street area, in clinics, medical and paramedical practices, and hospitals.
It has been speculated that doctors were originally attracted to the area by the development of commodious housing and central proximity to the important railway stations of Paddington, Kings Cross, St Pancras, Euston.
Many famous people have lived or practised in Harley Street, including the Victorian Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, the artist J.M.W. Turner and the speech therapist Lionel Logue. Queen’s College, founded in 1848 and one of the oldest girls’ schools in England, is situated on Harley Street.
