Installation of creative hoarding design for Westminster Abbey
As construction starts to transform the 13th Century triforium into a public viewing gallery.
Another high quality installation for Project Print Management of a printed hoarding design for Westminster Abbey our third project with them this year. This hoarding design was digitally printed onto 3mm aluminium composite panels and over laminated with an anti-graffiti film for additional protection. This was to replace the traditional sign writing graphics we installed in April. The original sign writing graphics was suppose to stay up for a year, however due to the construction work ever changing so did the safety hoarding and unfortunately the hoarding design was not able to be saved. We used the same design as the previous hoarding we did so to keep the cost down.
As this hoarding was right in front of the Abbey entrance this is where people queued up to get in so an early start for us! Arriving a 5.45am and watching the sun rise above the Palace of Westminster we managed to get most of the panels up by 11am
Information about the construction of the 13th century triforium.
Restoration work has now begun to transform the 13th century triforium into a new public viewing and gallery area in central London. The £19 million space will exhibit many historical objects from the church and give visitors impressive views down over its buildings. The medieval space 70 ft above Westminster Abbey will be accessible from a new stair and lift tower at the east end of the church. This will be the abbey’s most significant addition since 1745, providing entry to what will be called The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries.
