Kwik-Klik has installed 120 linear metres of temporary hoarding around the entrances of Evelina Childrens Hospital, built alongside St Thomas' Hospital in central london.
Part of the hoarding was attached directly to the scaffolding frame around the 7-storey curved glass facade which allows daylight into the hospital.
Further hoardings supported by concrete counterweights have been erected in front of the old building to a create a secure compound for main contractors Structura and other trades.
Robust and lightweight Ultraspan panels were used to create a smooth run of hoarding which is the ideal surface for affixing colourful and informative graphics. The bespoke graphics help visitors find their way into the hospital and explain the nature of the glass replacement work. Ultraspan panels are made from 100% recycled PVC and are re-usable.
The project will be completed in September 2012. Click on the magnifying glass to enlarge the photographs.
Kwik-klik MD Tony Doherty says "This is another example of us responding to site conditions. We have safely applied hoarding panels direct to scaffolding on numerous hospital and rail projects. This minimises the inconvenience to pedestrians and creates safe walkways into the site. The wayfinding branded graphics add an extra dimension to the usefulness of the hoarding."
