Hoardfast uPVC for shielding renovations
Company: Birmingham Airport (Coupe Decor)
Location: Birmingham Airport
Overview: Airport fit out
Solution: Hoardfast uPVC
Birmingham Airport were undergoing renovations to improve their customers’ experience. Contractor Coupe Decor were tasked with removing the restaurant and seating areas to create a new and improved entrance into the airport security hall. Westgate Global were approached to provide internal site hoarding to shield the ongoing renovations from customers as the airport remained fully open whilst the project was underway.
Westgate Global provided 2.7m high Hoardfast uPVC panels with weighted supports to assist with the project. Directional signage and improvement feedback graphics were applied to the exterior of the hoarding to create a simple and smart looking system which enhanced the passenger experience and seamlessly fits into the environment. Customers eating in the restaurant opposite were unaware of work taking place behind the hoarding.
In total 100m of hoarding was used (with offset supports using one weight placed every 1m) which the contractor purchased to enable them to use it multiple times. Hoardfast uPVC is designed to be reusable and as such Westgate offer panels on a hire term with the option to also purchase. Single door contractor access with a push keypad for additional security was also required.
