Massive Mesh Building Wrap Screen at Loseley House,
The largest building wrap we have done this year was Loseley House in Guildford Surrey. With a total measurement of a massive 16 meters high x 74 meters long and weighing over 350 kg of digitally printed mesh PVC.
The building wrap was made up of two elevations covering a very complex scaffolding structure. The print is of Loseley House as it is under extensive and necessary renovation and almost unseen under all the scaffolding.
Loseley House plays host to many weddings and the owners wanted to ensure wedding guest still have a view of this magnificent house so decided to commission a mesh printed building wrap. This also ensure when couples choosing a wedding venue they can see what the house looks like in its full glory.
There are many challenges in making sure the print fits the scaffolding, as the structure is much larger than the building. We also had the added challenge that the front door was still to be used so the print had to line up with the actual door.
A site office, materials lift and two skips also had to be accessed from the front of the banner and panels had to be pre cut into the mesh building wrap also ensuring the openings line up with the pre fabricated scaffolding structure.
The importance of keeping the scaffolding designer informed is paramount as on this project they were not told until we were well into the artwork and they insisted on additional fixing points which meant unexpected costs to than client.
The digital print was on PVC mesh material and printed on a 5 meter HP XL jet1500 and welded on a high frequency PVC welder.
The installation was carried out by the scaffold contractor under the supervision of Justin Murray and took a total of 15 men to lift the building wrap into place.
As you can see from the images the overall job looked fantastic and the end client was very pleased commenting “you would hardly know it was a print if looking at it from the fields! “
www.loseleypark.co.uk Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty.
From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park is sought after for civil weddings, corporate events, and as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility. But it’s also a place to visit, to enjoy the grounds, the garden and house, and relax in one of England’s friendliest historic homes.
