Project Print Management Designs, Prints & Installs Magnificent Hoarding at Westminster Abbey

The printed hoarding effectively mimics the building’s façade to hide the construction site and scaffolding.

June 29, 2020 —

London, UK - Project Print Management (PPM) specialises in building wraps and printed hoardings which mimic the building’s façade to hide the construction site or scaffolding. The company is renowned for offering practical and deliverable solutions for exceptionally challenging large format print projects, some of which include Somerset House, Fulham Palace and several others on Harley Street.

One of the company’s most challenging projects, however, was the ‘trompe l’oeil’ printed hoarding recently put in place at Westminster Abbey. According to Project Print Management owner and creator, Justin Murray, this is a highly specialised craft. The process begins with a team of engineers and designers collecting accurate measurements and photos of the building façade, which are then carefully edited to create the perfect realistic perspective, colour and scale. The goal was to keep the design simple with little copy, since so many Abbey visitors tend to be foreign tourists and schoolchildren.

The images were digitally printed on aluminum composite panels, and the overall size of the hoarding was 4 meters high and 87 meters long.

“We enjoyed working on Westminster Abbey tremendously,” says Murray. “It’s such a magnificent structure. We think the results of our efforts speak for themselves. Project Print Management has many years of experience in the business, and we have the expertise to provide innovative solutions to some of the most challenging print projects, as shown in our work at the Abbey.”

Murray explains that most facade building wraps are for decorative purposes, and are often used when historical buildings or buildings of architectural importance undergo refurbishment or maintenance work. Hiding the unattractive sight of scaffolding and a messy building site enhances the construction site and the amenity itself.

The company has also recently created several scaffold wraps for the iconic Somerset House. This magnificent facility is open to the public year-round for exhibitions and events that include ice-skating in the winter and the popular Film4 screenings in the summer, when the courtyard is transformed into London’s largest open-air cinema.

As an older historic building, Somerset House is in constant need of repair. PPM has installed a realistic building wrap to cover the construction work and create a stunning optical illusion that allows the building to maintain its visual aesthetic while undergoing renovation. This particular building wrap was digitally printed on 5-meter-wide format printer using UV ink technology onto Verseidag mesh PVC banner material.

Other remarkable projects include Large Format Print Projects, such as the Everton FC Stadium wrap, BNP Paribas lift shaft printed screen and currently work on a scaffold wrap for the British Museum. Many of these types of projects have never before been accomplished.

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jul 10, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 10, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 10, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
