ABOUT THE PROJECT
South Australian builders Built Environs have secured the contract to build the Adelaide Oval Hotel, a $42m project that will see Adelaide Oval become the first stadium in Australia to feature an integrated hotel. This project is planned to be completed before September 2020 in time for the ICC T20 World Cup. The 138 room boutique hotel will be part of the stadium itself, with construction on site beginning in August 2019. Major construction works will begin at the conclusion of the AFL season.
The unique hotel will be built on two elevated pods that follow the external curves of the eastern façade of the stadium. This means it will not encroach on the surrounding parklands or the plaza, unobtrusively fitting into the existing oval structure.
Due to this external wraparound design, a construction zone encircling the oval was fenced off. This presented a great opportunity for Built Environs to advertise their brand on their temporary fencing, and the project managers sought a printed fence mesh supplier in Adelaide.
SOLUTION: PRINTED FENCE BANNER MESH
Our branding team supplied a range of fence mesh banners for this Adelaide project. Rather than one long run of fence mesh, Built Environs chose a series of 10 separate pieces ranging from 25m long to just 2.4m long that would fit neatly and seamlessly on the site fencing and scaffolding. This created a neat and professional appearance and allowed the company’s logo to shine.
Complete with custom wind slits every 2 metres, the premium fence fabric provided high print quality whilst also allowing wind to pass through. This prevented the mesh from acting like a sail when it was installed on the temporary fencing.
Our premium fence mesh is strong yet lightweight and comes complete with eyelets allowing it to be quickly fixed to site fencing. Made from a smooth perforated polyester, it typically has 80% print surface with 20% airflow; more with the addition of optional wind slits.
The plain fence mesh fabric provides a receptive base for our Absorb-Plus inks. These bright, opaque inks ensure excellent print reproduction on both simple and intricate designs.
