Preserving our heritage at important locations

Embrace Building Wraps have recently completed the installation of a 360 degree building wrap covering temporary cabins at the Main Quad at UCL (University College London) in Bloomsbury. Whilst the two tier cabins will provide extra educational space for students for the next five years they are located at the Main Quad at UCL, an area surrounded by Grade I listed buildings.

As such it was vital that the completed wrap should be sympathetic to the style and nature of its neighbours and enhance the panorama rather than detract from it.

Speaking of the project Greg Forster Managing Director at Embrace Building Wraps – commented

“When undertaking a project such as this we are incredibly aware of the exceptional interest that these historic building have and are mindful of that at every stage of the process. The UCL estate includes seven grade I and 44 Grade II listed buildings and the main campus is located within a conservation area. Fortunately with our years of experience we are able to ensure the rich views are preserved and even enhanced throughout periods of disruption.”

Greg continues,

“We have also completed numerous installations covering the façade of Grade II listed buildings during works. We are the only choice when great care must be taken in preserving our heritage for generations to come.”
