 Printed Hoarding to camouflage Building Sites
Printed Hoarding to make building site hoardings more attractive is becoming increasingly popular as opposed to using them for a marketing. With the housing market booming in London and the south-east of England building work is popping up everywhere which is causing great stress for the neighbours. With house prices reaching an all time high in London and with most having been extended to the maximum, there is only one place people can go and that’s down!
Basements are now very cost-effective per M2 when you compare it to the £12 million house price and digging the basements out is not for the fainthearted. Often the skip is positioned on the road with a plywood hoarding around it with a conveyor belt carrying the waste from the basement into the skip.
These skip hoardings do look ugly and cumbersome especially when you think most of the affluent areas in London are in conservation areas. House builders and contractors have been coming up with a creative design and digitally print a camouflage pattern onto aluminium panel and fix it to the skip hoarding so it blends into the environment better. Our Printed hoarding panels come in 8ft x 4ft (2400 mm x 1220 mm).
