The First of Its Kind

Building Wrap in Vancouver

65,000 SQFT Building Wrap at The Vancouver International Airport

After almost a year of planning, producing, and installing this monumental project, we are absolutely thrilled to reveal our biggest project to date in its whole grandeur. Located just east of the Vancouver International Airport, the soon-to-be Airport Commerce Centre is impossible to miss with its fully wrapped sides showcasing YVR’s commitment to be carbon net zero by 2030.

Back in the summer of 2021 when the building went under construction, the team at YVR saw a great opportunity to emphasize their commitment to being the greenest airport in the world in the grandest way possible. Whether you are flying in, taking the Skytrain, or driving, the bold statement is towering above the surroundings that is visible for miles in all direction. What would otherwise have been an unsightly scaffolded site has now been transformed to reflect YVR’s branding, while glamourizing the path to YVR and concealing the future commerce centre for a grand reveal.

We are honored to have been trusted to execute a project of a scale the city has never seen before. Through this page, we hope to convey the months of hard work and dedication that went into this project. If you are ever in the vicinity, share your pics with us with the hashtag #yvrbuildingwrap. We would love to see it through your lens.

Our Work

For the first month and a half, our team went through an extensive pre-planning phase where they sat down with all the stakeholders including the installation and scaffolding teams. They then planned through the logistics involved in the production and installation of all four sides, the deliverables by each team, and the timeline it must be completed within. Once the plan was laid out, we produced and approved a few samples to test the installation method, color vibrancy, and the overflow of the image within the panels.

Due to the magnitude of the project, the production and installation phase was broken into four phases – each phase representing a side. The first phase was produced and installed towards the end of 2021, while the last one completing at the end of May. Throughout these 6 months, our team went through countless hours of printing, finishing, packing, and installing.

Behind the Scenes

Production

The whole project was printed on 70 rolls of Mesh Banner media and required over 40 days of printing, and 16 days of finishing in total. A few samples and prototypes were created to ensure accuracy prior to producing the full banners. 

Scaffolding

There was a thorough review of the scaffolding being used as it needed to withstand the weight and wind load of the banners. By providing the specs of our media and accessories, our scaffolding partners were able to engineer, produce, and install the scaffolding to our specific requirements.

Installation

Spread over six months and four phases, the installation took about 20 days in total. An 80-foot articulating lift was needed to attach all the banners at the top which were then rolled down and attached manually on the remaining three sides.
