This is a great example of a Quality site hoarding at Westminster Abbey we designed, printed and installed.
Having a quality site hoarding is very important as its how the public views the construction site and disguises the plywood hoarding which is a health and safety requirement.
We really enjoyed working on this project as its not often one gets the opportunity to work in the shadows of this magnificent Abbey. All the staff at the Abbey are friendly, we had lots of space to work in and most importantly in London, a free parking space!
Trying to design a quality site hoarding ensuring we worked with in the Westminster Abbeys brand guildline was a bit of challenge. Working with the official Abbey photographer we selected a number of images which would appeal to a wide audience. Foreign tourists and school children are regular visitors to the Abbey so the Quality site hoarding design had to be simple and with little copy.
This Quality site hoarding was printed on a high resolution digitally printer, laminated with an anti-graffiti film and mounted onto aluminium composite panel also known as Dibond or ACM. 65 liner meters of site hoarding was installed in 2 days.
About Westminster Abbey
Westminster Abbey is steeped in more than a thousand years of history. Benedictine monks first came to this site in the middle of the tenth century, establishing a tradition of daily worship which continues to this day.
The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of seventeen monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, with the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint still at its heart.
A treasure house of paintings, stained glass, pavements, textiles and other artefacts, Westminster Abbey is also the place where some of the most significant people in the nation’s history are buried or commemorated. Taken as a whole the tombs and memorials comprise the most significant single collection of monumental sculpture anywhere in the United Kingdom.
