With spring just around the corner, many businesses start planning a bit of a refresh and refurbishment. Sometimes it’s good to shake things up and breathe new life into the commercial space you have. More often than not, during these changes, work must continue as usual which can cause a bit of disruption. Whether it’s to create more space, to undergo a complete redesign or to upgrade existing features, here’s how internal site hoarding can be of real benefit during your refurbishment.
Helps to keep dust and mess to a minimum
When work is being carried out, especially if it involves construction, it can become a bit of a building site if steps aren’t taken to contain the mess and dust. Obviously this is a problem if your office or retail store is going to remain operational throughout the duration of the works. Hoardfast internal site hoarding can be used to create a dust barrier between the area of the refurbishment and the rest of the space. You can see how this was achieved with retail hoarding at Lidl.
Internal site rooms can be easily erected
For large scale refurbishments such as you’d find in factories or warehouses, it’s often necessary to create internal site rooms to meet the needs of on-site workers. Hoardfast internal site rooms help fulfill welfare requirements when external space is at a premium.
Branding can remain consistent
This is especially important for when works are being carried out in retail or transportation environments such as airports. Upgrades and general refurbishments can be quite disruptive and can often cause confusion amongst customers and the general public is not handled correctly. By having clear signage and branding throughout the duration of the works, you can head off any issues before they arise. Internal site hoarding allows for company branding and logos to be applied with ease and you can see how this works in practice at Heathrow Airport.
Helps to keep noise disruption to a minimum
An unfortunate secondary effect of conducting works is noise. Noise can be distracting, annoying and wholly inconvenient, especially to the general public or office workers. But more than that, there are actually noise regulations in place for work environments that need to be adhered to. This can become a problem whilst regular work is being carried out alongside refurbishments. Hoardfast Soundscreen is a perforated sound reduction system that can help to minimise noise transfer.
