A Cultural Icon Gets a Refresh

The Victoria Theatre Company, a historic landmark in Newcastle, sought to revitalise its exterior as part of a restoration project. Century Values, a trusted partner in venue enhancement, was chosen for the challenging task of transforming the facade.

The project wasn’t without hurdles. Meticulous attention to detail was required for the mesh banners that would serve as the canvas for the theatre’s branding. Spacing and sizing needed to be perfect. Additionally, unforeseen delays threatened the project timeline.

Fence Banner Mesh, however, thrives on tackling complex challenges.

Open Communication Ensures Seamless Execution

Understanding the importance of the graphics, Fence Banner Mesh provided Century Values with personalised support, offering them our Premium Fence Banner Mesh for the top scaffolds and our Vinyl Banners for the bottom wooden hoarding while guiding them through the mesh banner production process.

Open communication was also paramount, so direct communication channels were established between production teams and Century Values, ensuring everyone was on the same page regarding design details and deadlines.

To further expedite the process, Fence Banner Mesh took the initiative to reinforce the banners with eyelets, making installation smoother and ensuring long-term durability.

Honouring the Past While Embracing the Future

The Victoria Theatre exterior upgrade was not merely about aesthetics but also about preserving its rich heritage. Fence Banner Mesh seamlessly integrated branding elements into the mesh and vinyl banners, marrying modernity with tradition. By incorporating the theatre’s logo and thematic imagery, we honoured its legacy while breathing new life into the facade. This fusion of restoration and branding underscored the significance of the project in preserving cultural heritage while reinforcing the theatre’s identity.

A Renewed Beacon for the Arts

The Victoria Theatre’s exterior now stands as a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation. Through meticulous planning, proactive problem-solving, and a commitment to heritage preservation, Century Values successfully brought the theatre’s facade back to life, reaffirming its place as a beloved cultural icon in Newcastle.

Intermain recently undertook an essential project at Fraser’s 2 Wonderland Drive in Eastern Creek, where secure and protected site fencing was a key requirement.

The main challenge in this project was the urgent need for rapid turnaround in the printing and artwork of fence banner mesh. This requirement was critical for ensuring the site’s security and protection, adhering to tight project timelines. The task was to deliver high-quality work within a remarkably short time frame, a demand that required immediate and focused action.

Recognising the urgency of project and aware of the deadline set by the client, we immediately gave their order top priority, moving it to the front of our print queue. Our team was dedicated to closely adhering to the specified timeline. Additionally, we established a strong partnership with our third-party installer. This partnership was crucial in ensuring that the installation process was not only timely and efficient but also aligned with the high standards expected by Intermain.

The selected product for this project was our Open Weave Banner Mesh, also known as Scrim. This product was ideal for the specific conditions at Fraser’s 2 Wonderland Drive for several reasons. Its 50% block-out feature allows wind to pass through, preventing a ‘sail’ effect, ideal for high wind or exposed sites.

The mesh is designed for durability, with a long shelf life of up to 2 years, and the resilience to be rolled, unrolled, and transported between sites. Each roll is 1.8m x 50m, user-friendly, and crafted from UV-treated polyester mesh.

Additionally, the product meets all OH&S requirements and includes reinforced strip welded/folded edge banding for enhanced durability.

The fence banner mesh project for Intermain at Fraser’s 2 Wonderland Drive is a testament to our ability to meet tight deadlines without compromising on product quality or installation efficiency. Our tailored solutions and proactive approach ensured that Intermain’s site was secured and protected on time, demonstrating our commitment to customer satisfaction and excellence in project execution.

When Royal Wolf, a prominent self-storage provider, was gearing up for the grand opening of their new Newcastle site in Kooragang, NSW, they faced a significant challenge: how to maximise brand exposure to passing traffic. Partnering with Fence Banner Mesh, they secured a solution that significantly enhanced site presentation and visibility.

The Challenge

Despite the excitement of a brand-new facility, Royal Wolf’s Newcastle site was missing a crucial element — visibility. With the location set to open soon, the lack of branding exposure to the daily stream of passersby was a significant hurdle.

Our Solution

Fence Banner Mesh responded with a rapid quote turnaround. Recognising the need for quick action, the artwork was crafted and approved within a day, and the production and shipping were executed within four days. A few days later, the premium custom printed fence mesh was installed — a mere eight business days from start to finish.

The solution included one premium roll of Fence Banner Mesh’s flagship printed scrim, strategically placed to face traffic for optimal exposure. The installation was meticulous, ensuring the mesh was displayed correctly to withstand environmental factors and maintain longevity.

Product Spotlight

Our Premium Fence Banner Mesh is engineered for outdoor fence branding. Its robust 280gsm, UV-treated polyester mesh offers an 80% material to 20% airflow ratio, with fire retardant properties. It’s available in 1.6m or 1.8m heights and 50m rolls, providing flexibility from partial to full print coverage.

Manufacturing Excellence

As a dedicated manufacturer, Fence Banner Mesh takes pride in not outsourcing work, allowing for bespoke sizes tailored to specific project needs. Our banners are designed with hemmed edges and eyelets for resilient installation, reducing the risk of damage in varied conditions.

Client Feedback

Royal Wolf was exceptionally pleased with the service, noting the mesh’s impact on street visibility and the swift installation process. The customer-centric approach of Fence Banner Mesh resulted in a satisfied client who could effectively market their brand to a broad audience.

THE CHALLENGES

Civil contracting firm Diona is working on renewing the Johnstons Creek stormwater channel in Sydney. Owned and managed by Sydney Water, Johnstons Creek is one of Sydney’s earliest purpose-built concrete stormwater drains.

In order to create a revitalised and healthy waterway that the local community can enjoy, Diona is working alongside Sydney Water to naturalise and renew Johnstons Creek. The project involves replacing the concrete base of the stormwater channel and removing the old concrete walls which will be replaced with stabilised banks landscaped with native plants, trees and sandstone.

The existing salt marsh will also be expanded, a wetland will be built to filter stormwater, and an existing footbridge replaced.

In late November 2019, Diona and Sydney Water hosted a successful community open day which resulted in positive feedback, welcoming the naturalisation works.

In order to continue the community goodwill and ensure surrounding residents were kept informed of the progress of the project, the team needed a way to communicate to the public about what was happening at the creek. Large format signage was identified as a budget friendly option.

 

THE SOLUTION: PRINTED FENCE MESH

The project team’s main objective is to improve the overall health of waterway by creating a natural planted stormwater system (or wetland) and maintain continuous access for parkland users during the construction works.

The contractor wanted to communicate this to local residents and chose to use our printed fence mesh customised with the project goals.

Our printed fence mesh enables you to promote your project or brand or product on your perimeter fencing, thereby generating public awareness and delivering an outstanding first impression of your brand to clients and the community.

Printed banner mesh is also known as fence wrap, printed shade cloth and fencing mesh and is typically seen covering hoarding and fences around building sites. Is comes with eyelets making it easy to install on cyclone fencing or other types of fences, and the quality 280gsm fabric offers 20% air breathability. This means 80% of the fabric is printable with your design, offering an outstanding high-impact finish.

Our quality inks are printed onto white base fabric, and provide excellent image fidelity, even for detailed image reproductions such as photographs. As seen here, simple text and colours can often provide the best effect, as it can be read from a long distance.

Our printed fence mesh is UV treated to provide longevity in harsh Australian weather, and when installed correctly it is long lasting and will remain looking great for the length of your project.

Diona and Sydney Water used simple messaging about this project on their mesh, and also took the opportunity to remind residents that water restrictions are in place, noting what they can do around the home to save water.

In total, over 4000 linear metres were installed at this project and similar waterway revitalisation projects around Sydney.

Diona began works in January 2020 and this project is expected to finish in mid 2021.

 

Many civil, construction and infrastructure projects incorporate a large community consultation component. This typically includes interaction with residents and businesses in the surrounding area who will be directly impacted by a project or development.

Community consultation and providing regular, accurate information is key to ensuring that your project runs smoothly and is not fraught with complaints and concerns from people who have not been fully informed of planned construction.

What better way to do this than with large format printed fence mesh!

Communicating to the Public with Fence Mesh

One of the best ways to ensure the community stays informed throughout the entire process, not just initial planning, is to provide a way to communicate the project’s purpose and deliverables at the actual site.

This ensures that all local residents, businesses and also intermittent users of the area can be kept informed of the project as it progresses. Whilst letterbox flyers and online advertising are important, they often do not capture temporary users of the area, such as people who work near the construction site or only visit the area for recreation purposes.

On-site advertising of the project with the help of printed fence mesh ensures that you capture all possible stakeholders, not just those in the nearby streets.

Print Your Messages, Project Goals and Timelines

Fence fabric is a perfect solution for community engagement officers, stakeholder management teams and project managers wishing to convey information about their project.

Providing informative, positive and goal-oriented wording on your fence fabric helps to build momentum for a project, encourages positivity and acceptance, and helps to keep local residents focussed on the final outcome rather than focussing on temporary noise issues or access restrictions.

Likewise, adding projected completion dates to your fence banner keeps the public reassured of the temporary nature of the project.

Tell People Where to Find More Information

Although standard construction site signs contain contact details for the site, often it’s more appropriate to provide a more general contact for the public to find additional information and sign up for updates to the project online.

Including your contact details on printed fence mesh ensures enquiries are directed to a single approved source of information. Plus, the large format printing allows for easy identification of this information by the public, even from a distance or from a moving vehicle.

Project Overview

The 6.9 hectare Milson Park is located in Westmead, cut down the centre by Finlayson Creek. This creek runs through the park and connects to Toongabbie Creek, and unfortunately, both are highly polluted due to the surrounding high-density urban environment.

As part of an overall transformation project encompassing the massive Westmead hospital precinct, the Milson Park area has been identified as an area ripe for renewal. With strong projected growth in the coming years, the area will be turned into a valuable recreational community space.

In a partnership with Sydney Water, Parramatta City Council is working to improve the overall health of the waterway and catchment and work on improved pedestrian and cycleway connections to Parramatta CBD. Stage 1 involves the construction of natural wetlands, increasing connections to ecological areas, and improved pedestrian and cycle connections.

An additional Stage 2 will centre around BBQ and picnic areas, and a potential community garden.

How Printed Project Signage keeps people informed

In this example, the project’s key message was printed in large format on the mesh: ‘We’re building a wetland to improve waterway health and create a better place for the community to enjoy”.

This simple sentence provides a positive and uplifting impression to the local community, and the contact email address and phone number direct people to additional online information.

Quality printed construction mesh that improves the look of your project

For this project, the team chose to use our premium mesh, a tightly woven polypropylene mesh that allows 20% airflow and 80% print coverage. The fence mesh measures 1.8m high making it perfect to fix to any temporary fence or cyclone fencing.

Sydney Water used two 5 metre wide panels of information that were repeated every 10 metres to provide a repetitive pattern that was fixed around the perimeter fencing on site.

This fence mesh is also available in 1.6m wide rolls, in shorter and longer lengths, and in a looser weave style that is particularly suited to exposed or windy sites.

THE PROJECT

Our customer, T1 Constructions, is working on three 12-storey buildings in Sydney’s West. The development known as ‘No 1 Zoe’ comprises 5680 square metres of retail and residential space spread across 12 levels.

With a new Good Luck Supermarket and 16 additional retail shops, this large commercial development in Mount Druitt will help cater to the growing population in the area.

The developers needed a cost-effective way to drum up interest in the development and generate sales enquiries for the luxury apartments.

With a significant area on the lower level enclosed with hoarding, this blank space presented an ideal area to advertise the project with printed logo and photo banners.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh helped T1 Constructions promote the project with high-quality photo banners for the hoarding.

By printing their brand and contact details in large format, along with that of development partner GLP Developments, the banners provided an effective way to encourage passers-by to call for more information.

Additionally, the flagship supermarket that is planned for the retail plaza has been advertised in full-colour photos to garner extra interest from the public. This specialty supermarket is a key drawcard for the development and the photorealistic images provide a strong sense of what the finished development will look like.

Fence Banner Mesh supplied 250 metres of printed photo banners for the hoarding, along with 3 smaller two-metre wide banners. Our banner mesh features 80% print coverage with 20% airflow, meaning it is ideal for printing detailed photographs such as the supermarket image shown here.

Excellent detail and crisp images can be achieved with our high-quality inks and fast printing process, which is completed in-house in our Sydney facility.  If you need to print photos on rolls of mesh for your next project, our premium mesh is the ideal choice, providing great quality at an affordable price.

 

SITE PHOTOS

THE PROJECT

The RSPCA in Yagoona in Sydney’s South West has recently been successful in securing a long term lease until 2056. Consequently, the 40-year-old flagship centre, which includes a vet hospital and animal shelter, is undergoing a major upgrade thanks to $12 million in funding announced in the State Government budget.

Each year around 15,000 cats and dogs are adopted through the Yagoona shelter, which is the largest centre in the state. The frequently visited facility is a hub of animal welfare in the Sydney basin, with a large shelter area and fully equipped veterinary clinic open 7 days a week.

Lahey Constructions are working on upgrading the site, which includes an expanded car park to cater for an additional 80 vehicles, plus construction of a new cattery building, adoption centre and shelter rows. The existing administration building will be demolished and a new two-storey RSPCA administration and education centre will be built.

Due to the site being heavily visited by families and pet owners, the busy location required extra signage to help visitors find their way to the vet clinic and animal adoption centre whilst construction was taking place. Extensions to the site caused regular entrances and walkways to be modified, and the RSPCA team needed signage to help visitors find their way around the site.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh supplied premium printed mesh banners for the site, specifically designed to help clearly show visitors where to park and where to go for adoptions.

These simple signs are printed on large format banner mesh and are designed for construction sites, to help advertise brands or projects or assist with wayfinding as seen here. Because we print all our banners in-house in our Sydney facility, we can offer fast turnaround and great quality. Plus with no minimum order quantity, it was no fuss for the RSPCA to order two 9 metre long banners and a smaller visitor parking banner.

The Fence Banner Mesh branding team are here to help you customise your fence banners with any design you choose. From simple to complex designs, your brand and logo is sure to look great on our premium fence mesh!

 

THE PROJECT

The North East Link project aims to fix the missing link in Melbourne’s freeway network, slashing travel times between the M80 Ring Road and the Eastern Freeway by up to 35 minutes and taking 15,000 trucks off local roads each day. The project encompasses around 100 above and below ground services that are earmarked for relocation, making way for the new North East Link. During the current Early Works stage, teams of builders are moving power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunications lines so major construction can start from 2021.

At one of the sites in Yallambie, more than 18 months of extensive site investigations in and around Borlase Reserve have helped identify power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunications services that need to be moved.

A site compound has been set up in Borlase Reserve whilst utilities are being moved. The first step in any construction project, the compound provides a safe environment for workers, and contains sheds, parking and plant & equipment.

The project managers needed to screen off the compound in order to lessen the impact on the surrounding residential area, and to help control dust and debris.

Using printed construction fence signage was an ideal solution as it could help to promote the brand and visually tie in this site with the 10 other NEL construction sites in the nearby area.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh supplied custom printed wind resistant construction fence signage to the Victorian project, with a simple design showing their logo and website.

A range of different sized banners totalling approximately 200 metres were printed by our in-house banner printing team. The range of custom sized banners ensured that different parts of the compound were neatly screened using the mesh, with perfectly sized banners for each area.

Different sized panels and lengths are no problem for our branding team; including uneven sized panel lengths and different types of repetitions.

For this project, Fence Banner Mesh supplied open weave mesh, a breathable and wind resistant construction fence signage that allows 50% airflow. This type of mesh is ideal for open sites that can be subject to a lot of wind. The fence mesh is made from UV treated polyester and because it allows wind to pass through easily, it will not act as a sail or tear in the wind.

THE PROJECT

Sydney builders Hiban Group have brought their 30+ years of professional building experience to a revolutionary project near Parramatta.

A 41 room boarding house at Harris Park aims to shepherd in a new breed of affordable accommodation, without the stigma of social housing. Hiban Group are working on this modern development, which also features retail tenancies underneath.

This contemporary 8 story building is currently under construction, with Hiban Group choosing to use the scaffolding as a prime advertising opportunity at this high-exposure site. The team needed a compliant scaffolding mesh that could showcase their logo, as well as providing privacy and stopping debris from escaping the site.

 

THE SOLUTION

The project managers used 4 x 50m rolls of custom fire retardant banner mesh, installed on every second level of the build.

Fence Banner Mesh created a bold and high impact printed scaffold mesh with repeats of Hiban’s logo. When fixed to every second level of the scaffolding, the printed scaffold mesh creates a great impact on passersby in this busy area.

Our banner mesh rolls are constructed from tough UV treated polyester mesh with 80% block out and 20% airflow. This provides privacy and an excellent substrate for printing, whilst still allowing for adequate airflow.

The ideal solution for high profile brand exposure, this smooth ‘shade cloth’ style mesh not only improves the image of your construction site, it doubles as an eye-catching marketing tool that delivers an outstanding first impression of your brand to clients.

The easy to handle material is simple to install, with eyelets every metre – simple cable tie the mesh to your perimeter fence, temporary fencing or scaffolding as seen here.

We can print any kind of logo or designs on the mesh, enabling a completely custom look. No matter how intricate or colourful your design, it will transfer accurately to our premium mesh!
