Cover Up Construction Areas with Signage Solutions

Spring is approaching, which means that construction projects will start ramping up with the nicer weather. As you enter the planning and beginning stages of your construction project, whether it is interior or exterior, it is the perfect time to start thinking about the outward appearance of your construction site.

While very exciting, construction sites are unsightly by nature with equipment, debris, and building materials. It may seem like a daunting task, but adding visual appeal to a construction site is fairly simple with the proper signage solution.

Exterior construction sites are typically required to have a fence surrounding the site for safety and security reasons. This can appear to contribute to unsightliness, but it is actually set up perfectly to use mesh windscreens as a visual improvement. Mesh windscreens, digitally printed flexible and durable mesh PVC material with reinforced edges, are the perfect signage solution for chain link fences surrounding exterior construction sites. Windscreens provide a level of privacy and wind protection to the construction site, while allowing the construction company or owner of the building to promote their brand, preview what is being built, highlight upcoming events, or showcase sponsors to those passing by the site.

Mesh windscreens can also be used on a smaller scale to showcase and offer a preview of upcoming construction projects.

Interior construction sites, such as retail stores or only one section of a building, can require a more creative signage solution depending on whether it is new construction, a full renovation, or a partial renovation. For an interior construction project in one portion of a building that cannot be closed, wall murals on divider walls can add excitement for the new area, provide updates on the project, or be used as a promotional tool. Wall murals also add color and life to what would otherwise be blank and empty wall space. Vinyl or cloth banners can also be used as partitions to provide privacy to the construction area while being visually pleasing to those outside of the construction area. 

On interior construction projects that have windows facing out to the street or another common area, window graphics provide a way to showcase branding and improvements coming to the site while also maintaining privacy and maintaining visual appeal. Window graphics come in opaque options where there is no visibility from one side to the other, or there is an option for one way perforated window film where there is visibility from the inside to the outside and very limited visibility from the outside in.

While these are a few of the more common signage solutions to cover up construction sites, they are far from the only ones. Custom signage allows us to tailor any signage solution to your exact needs and specifications.
