What are Printed Site Hoarding Boards?

We have dedicated many blogs to our work with long-standing client, Cavanna Homes and their continued excellent approach to building new homes and making the space both presentable and safe for all in the vicinity. You can see the passage of time and their designs with us starting with their site in Bellevue, Bude.

This blog will help explore more the uses and diversity of Site Hoarding Boards with Cavanna's newest take for their site, 'Equinox I' in Exeter.

FAQ

WHAT IS HOARDING BOARD AND WHAT IS IT MADE OF?

Usually, hoardings will be made of either metal – usually steel or aluminium composite material – or timber. Wooden panels are more common, as they tend to be more cost-effective, easier to install, recyclable, lightweight and generally more convenient. Hoarding graphics, however, are printed/installed onto separate panels, which are then attached to the hoardings.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF HOARDING BOARD?

Hoardings are the panels that surround a construction site; they're usually made of wood or metal, and they provide safety, security, and protection for the public and construction employees. They're also a fantastic advertising tool.

They also provide a valuable visual break and perfect marketing space between the local environment and the construction site. Many people find construction works to be unsightly, loud, dusty, and a ‘blight’ on the area where they’re found. Hoardings provide a handy guise and temporary cover so that the local area is better maintained without too much disruption. With the addition of hoarding graphics, the panels can even look appealing and exciting.

HOW BIG CAN HOARDING BOARDS BE?

They usually stand about 2 metres in height, and form a barrier around the perimeter of a site. They’re thick, sturdy, and provide a barrier to ensure that no one can accidentally end up in the site itself, among all the dangerous tools and materials. Saying this, hoardings can be as long as you need them to be. This particular job for Cavanna was 30 meters of boarding, and a mix of 18mm plywood, and Aluminium Composite Material (ACM), both with a printed matt laminate skin. The job was tidied off with header and kicker boards, and secured with wooden posts behind for longevity and easy maintenance.

WHY ARE HOARDINGS IMPORTANT?

  • A fundamental part of the construction process.
  • Hoardings are a legal requirement for safety and protection of both workers and the public.
  • The large wooden panels act as shields – sheltering the site from prying eyes, protecting the surrounding areas from dust and debris, and ensuring that the local community isn’t impacted by an unattractive building site during the construction period.
  • Numerous advertorial and branding impacts that hoardings can offer a business -
    - Brand Awareness
    - Wayfinding and Directional Signage
    - Community Engagement
    - Can sell the space for Third Party businesses to use for partnership advertising
    - Large Temporary Art Murals and Graphic Spaces

WHAT ARE THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR HOARDINGS AND MY DESIGNS?

There are a few rules that apply to WHAT your hoarding board graphics can display, but which apply depends on the specific nature of your project and its location. Please double check with your Project Manager on your designs, but do get in touch if you need assistance, and our in-house team can help.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CONSTRUCT?

From the initial brief to installation, the time scale varies depending on the project scale, and all departments working in sync with you, our Client. The actual time it takes to print/complete the site hoarding installation is minimal. We’ve been known to turn projects around in a matter of days, sometimes even printing products the same day the artwork comes through. If you are looking for a speedy turnaround, do get in touch to see if we can assist and for bespoke quoting.

HOW MUCH DO HOARDINGS COST?

The cost of a hoarding graphics project will vary depending on the length and size of the panels, and the materials required. If you’d like a more accurate figure for the cost of your project, please contact our Sales Team for a quote. You can also view our Hoarding Board product for a brief overview, but due to tha nature of the product and its numerous variations, this product is better to be quoted on an individual basis.
