What is a building wrap?

A building wrap is a large printed banner which covers the exterior a scaffolding. The banner is fixed into position and then stretched tight around the scaffold, creating an impressive drum-skin-like finish. Building wraps fix to an additional framework which can be installed onto any type of scaffolding. The banners are printed on a mesh or solid PVC material, depending on the application, and have an endless range of design possibilities. 

There are a number of reasons that your client may want to install a building wrap onto their scaffolding. To list only a few advantages, building wraps:

  • Hide ongoing works behind the scaffolding
  • Improve the presentation of the site
  • Reduce noise coming from within the site
  • Reduce dust escaping from inside the site
  • Create space for advertisement and branding
  • Improve considerate contractor scheme rating
  • Protect the site from harsh weather conditions

Our method

Lavastar offers a simple pricing structure based on the size of the building wrap, meaning you can provide accurate estimates right from the word go. Should your client be interested in a building wrap based on these estimates, we can conduct an unbranded site survey completely free of charge. This allows us to take all the necessary measurements and calculate the exact cost for you to present to your client. At this point, we can also make suggestions on how to maximise the visual impact of your building wrap should you wish to pass this information on. 

Once costs are approved, Lavastar take care of everything in house. To give you an idea of what goes into a building wrap, we would typically:

  • Produce a design for the additional framework which will house the banner
  • Provide wind loading calculations to ensure the scaffold can support the banner
  • Install the framework to the existing scaffolding
  • Liaise with marketing departments to produce designs free of charge
  • Print the banner in-house using ultra UV-resistant inks
  • Provide detailed risk assessments and method statements
  • Install the banner
