The Image Group make headlines at Windsor Castle...
How do you make unsightly scaffolding rising over 80ft-high on a scheduled ancient monument disappear? That was the challenge facing The Image Group when they were asked to take part in preparations for Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
The North Terrace is undergoing a lengthy refurbishment and it was realised that the work would coincide with the Queens' 90th birthday celebrations at the Castle. In order to avoid having the scaffolding and subsequent works impact on events at the Castle, the team at Windsor decided to put the problem out to tender.
With their experience in providing architectural building wraps, The Image Group were perfectly suited to coming up with a solution for such an iconic building. After coming through an initial tender process that included a comprehensive survey, costings, procedures and critical paths The Image Group were appointed to provide design, print and installation.
The process started with producing a visual using high resolution photography of the original facade and compositing it together into an enormous seamless graphic. The design was made to match the walls underneath the scaffolding in as much details as possible, even going as far as to show the paintings and chandeliers behind the windows to add to the realism.
With an approved design, the team set about preparing the banner frame work on site to allow for a seamless facade on the scaffold. Once the frame was in place the artwork was scaled to size and printed onto a Mesh PVC in preparation for the 4 day install which would involve using a team of abseilers to manage the 82ft high prints on site.
For Image Group, account manager Tom Bywater said:
"We were incredibly honoured to be involved in such a prestigious project. We take pride in all of our work but even more so with Windsor Castle being such an iconic and historic building.
From initial planning with the Windsor Castle Team through to the final installation, this has been a great project for us to be involved in and we think the results speak for themselves."
