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. 

  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.
