Project Print Management (PPM) has delivered an enormous building wrap at The Bromptons in London.
Built 1844 and originally a hospital, the site has been redeveloped as a residential property by Northacre, which wanted to preserve the building’s architectural characteristics. PPM’s brief was to hide or disguise the scaffolding, which housed a hoist while renovation work was carried out over an 18 month period.
“For this project the client wanted to use their own scaffolding contractor to supply the sub-frame. We suggested they utilise our experienced supervisor on a day rate to train and assist their staff with the installation of the sub-frame. Once completed the supervisor surveyed the frame so our artwork team could produce a template for the design,’ explained PPM chief Justin Murray.
He added: “Photographing the building can be very tricky, especially when they are tall and thin because perspective becomes more of an issue. The perspective then needs to be corrected as part of the artwork process.”
The building wrap was printed on a 5m-wide printer onto a mesh PVC and finished with eyelets (internal hole size 14mm) at 300mm centres through a 6mm roped edge pocket with a webbed fold and high frequency weld edging on all sides. Rear ties prevents thee wrap from peeling.
