Reaching for the Sky

A bespoke project recently completed in West London proved no job is too big or too high for the Reade Signs team

The Brief

We were asked if we were able to fabricate and install 56 coloured PVC mesh banners around a brand new multi-storey car park in West London. Oh and by the way, the banners are almost 20 metres in height and up to 7 metres wide and there are just 6 weeks to complete the works. This was a truly mammoth undertaking. We had to build the aluminium frames on site in the middle of winter – no two banner frames were the same size or colour. The frames and banners were fitted using teams of abseilers, and to top it all – the car park was in use 24 hours a day throughout the project.

The Solution

A detailed project plan was key here as there were so many elements to bring together. The structural calculations, drilling templates and fabrication drawings had to be signed off prior to site works beginning and working areas had to be cordoned off and agreed to ensure the safety of our work force, the general public and the car parks users. Happily we achieved all our objectives, the only hold ups were a few days of high winds where the abseil teams couldn’t work safely. The end product is simply stunning and a testament to what can be achieved with the right team, meticulous planning and an unswerving belief that we could get the job done.

The end result is stunning turning a car park into a major talking point from all vantage points. The client is delighted with the end results and complimented the team on their tenacity and dedication to execute the project in such a professional and smooth manner.

“We’re very pleased with how the car park is looking. Great job. Thanks!”

Nick Green, Property Manager
