Hoarding Graphics at UWL

Printing and installing 45 metres of impactful hoarding panel graphics at The University of West London


Last year, ahead of the new academical year, The University of West London asked The Bigger Printing Company to produce and install a large hoarding panel display in the St. Marys Road campus car park. Such was the success of that project, The University of West London asked Bigger Printing to return ahead of the 2018 academical year and update the hoarding panel graphics with new hoarding boards.

The University of West London (UWL) is a public university which has campuses in Ealing and Brentford in London, as well as in Reading, Berkshire. The University of West London has recorded the best results of any university in London in the annual National Student Survey (NSS) in 2016, with students’ responses showing it to be the best University in London for student satisfaction. In the NSS 2016, there were 100 per cent overall satisfaction rates for nine courses across the University’s eight schools, ranging from Midwifery to Business Studies and Music Technology to Hospitality Management.

The St. Marys Road campus car park continues to have some construction work undertaken, and as a result of this construction work, a section of the car park is cordoned off. The university requires impactful hoarding graphics to shield off the construction site, as well as welcome the new students and visitors to the campus.

The project needed to be produced and installed ahead of the Fresher’s arriving on site. As the car park is busy enough on a normal day, all construction and installation work on the hoarding needed to be completed before the 3,000 students arrived on site in order to provide the students with a strong ‘welcome message’, and avoid any obvious health and safety concerns.

Bigger Printing produced just over 45 metres of hoarding panels, using Alupanel. Bigger Printing is proud to be one of the first officially recognised Alupanel Product Partners which is manufactured in the UK by leading industry manufacturer, Multipanel UK. This Product Partnership is a stamp of approval from Multipanel UK, and recognises the high level of print quality and service Bigger Printing supplies.

Each of the individual hoarding panels stands at over 2 metres high in order to shield off the construction site from view, and were finished with an anti-graffiti seal to provide extra protection from both the elements, and any other potential damage. Bigger Printing also removed the existing panels ahead of the installation, and took them away to be recycled.

The finished result is a highly impactful, weatherproof, anti-graffiti hoarding display which successfully hides the construction work being carried out, as well as providing a very vibrant welcome to the students visiting the campus.

Speaking following the installation of the hoarding panels, Andrea Collard, Marketing Manager at The University of West London said "Thank you to the Bigger Printing Company who printed and installed our hoarding for the second year running. Lovely to work with and very helpful - they went out there way when there was an unexpected issue and ensured installation happened on time. Would defiantly use again!"
