  1. Your projects are resource sensitive. If you have more than three hi-rise projects across the city, multiple renovation projects or even one large project, then environmental hoarding can be very useful in saving time and money on a large scale. Environmental hoarding is a good fit with fast-paced, resource sensitive projects due to the fact that it can be installed in a matter of hours, repairing it after an accident is not as costly and, most importantly, it can be reused multiple times.

  2. Your projects have had complaints from the neighborhood or surrounding tenants. The noise coming from inside the construction site may have led to multiple complaints from nearby residents. While plywood and drywall construction hoardings do not have any sound dampening properties, environmental hoarding panels can be equipped with soundproof panels which make a considerable difference in noise reduction.

  3. Your construction hoarding has been vandalized in the past. After days of careful planning and laborious installation, the brand new graphics on the construction hoarding were compromised with graffiti. Although vandalism in inevitable, having an anti-graffiti film on the environmental hoarding graphics will provide resistance to such kinds of defacement.

  4. Your goal is to reduce waste and meet environmental goals. If setting and exceeding environmental goals is an important aspect of your business, then a practical way to achieve this is by cutting down on the waste caused by plywood and drywall hoarding. As mentioned is our blog What is environmental hoarding? Everything you need to know about North America's new temporary hoarding system, environmental hoarding can be reused at multiple sites instead of ending up in the landfill.

  5. You don't have enough advertising space on your current hoarding system. If it takes multiple artwork reviews with the graphic design team or with your advertising agency to fit in all the marketing messages on an eight foot high plywood hoarding, then having twice the space would make room for even more creativity. Environmental hoarding is perfect for guerilla marketing campaigns because it reaches a remarkable 16.5 foot in height and can be customized to the specific site requirement. For example, in a mall setting, the hoarding can even be adjusted to go over 16.5 foot using the Greenloc coupler.

Although every project is unique, these five signs are general indicators that traditional plywood and drywall construction hoarding might be draining your projects of valuable time and money resources. In the long run, failing to consider these symptoms can lead to unnecessary project delays and additional costs. If you can relate to at least three of these signs, then contact us today to discuss how environmental hoarding can fit into your next project.

You’ve read Part 1: The problems with traditional construction hoarding systems and decided you want to know more about the alternatives to plywood and drywall hoarding. While environmental hoarding comes with substantial benefits as outlined in our article here, it is crucial to know when to make the switch from traditional construction hoarding to environmental hoarding. 

If you’ve spent more than you budgeted on hoarding last year and it takes days of planning the installation, then keep reading to learn more about the signs that it might be time to switch to environmental hoarding.

The problems with traditional construction hoarding systems

The problems with traditional construction hoarding systems

The problems with traditional construction hoarding systems

Marco Pitt, Senior Travelers, Italy

22 March 2016

Construction hoarding is important to any construction site, due to its vital role as a safety barrier, debris protector and ultimately, as an advertising billboard for the project. However, while traditional plywood and drywall hoarding are most commonly used in the construction industry, they are not necessarily the premium, most economical alternatives on the market. From safety, costs and waste, we’ve outlined the problems with traditional construction hoarding systems made out of plywood and drywall.

  1. Construction Hoarding is not safe enough. While the idea of having the construction site enclosed with an 8 ft. high plywood construction hoarding system might seem like the obvious choice for security, plywood hoarding presents major safety risks for both workers and pedestrians. Installing and uninstalling the hoarding is a heavy, labour intensive process which requires safety standards of its own. Not to mention the hazardous, sharp edges of plywood and the metal nails that can injure both workers and pedestrians. As for drywall, the process of installing and uninstalling is wasteful, unsanitary and even toxic due to the large amounts of dust produced. Metal drywall studs are often sharp and present additional risks.

  2. Plywood and drywall construction hoarding is not cost efficient. Installing and uninstalling plywood and drywall hoarding takes a significant amount of time and requires specially trained workers to install it. As a result, the labour costs for putting up the temporary hoarding are significant. Additional costs include materials which have only a one time, single use before ending up in landfill.

  3. Construction Hoarding is time consuming. Installing plywood or drywall hoarding takes significant amounts of time to install and can even extend to after-hours installation. As the installation hours increase so do the costs. In cases of work site accidents or vandalism, the amount of time and costs invested in repairing hoarding can also add up. Consider common graffiti issues and the hours of labour that go into cleaning it up.

  4. Construction Hoarding can be difficult when it comes to applying advertising graphics. Once the hoarding is up, the job is not yet complete. The drywall needs to be painted before applying the graphics causing additional delays, potential unpleasant odours and additional labour and cost. Plywood on its own looks esthetically unpleasing. To beautify the appearance of plywood, crezon panels are typically applied on top. Crezon itself is heavy and very costly and the additional installation labour is cumbersome.

  5. Plywood and drywall construction hoarding is wasteful. “Reduce, reuse, and recycle” – an important guideline in today’s environmentally conscious world. Unfortunately, it can’t be applied to either plywood or drywall hoardings. Once the construction hoarding is torn down, it ends up in the landfill and cannot be re-purposed.

    Although plywood and drywall hoardings have been the popular choice in the construction industry, it’s time to take a step back and analyze the inevitable problems with this traditionally used application. Time and money are two of the most valuable resources in any construction project and, realistically, using plywood and drywall hoarding consumes both of these essential assets. The problems with traditional construction hoarding are evident. Is it really worth spending hours of labour and thousands of dollars in a solution that can only be used one time?
