Case Study – Newfoundland, Canary Wharf
Newfoundland is a 220m tall newly built apartment building at the forefront of Canary Wharf. To compliment the interior décor our clients wanted a subtle gold effect on the lift entrances from floors 3-58. 4 newly installed passenger lifts service the building. Each floors’ lift lobby had 4 entrances, 4 indicators and 2 full height call button panels that required wrapping. The client had already chosen PA-046 from the 3M Di-noc architectural vinyl range. Along with other companies, Omnia vinyl were asked to carry out a demo installation wrap on site. The quality of our demo wrap ensured that we were the chosen company to take this lift wrap project forward.
Due to the sheer scale of this project and the volume of vinyl involved, it was manufactured specifically for us by 3M Japan.
With the material due to arrive mid-January and building handover scheduled for early March, the client requested an accelerated installation programme to meet the PC date. The lift installation, commissioning and testing was still in progress, so this accelerated programme had to take these factors into account. We broke the installation down into 3 phases.
Phase 1: All surfaces that required no interaction with the lifts (architraves, indicators, LOP’s)
Phase 2: Lift entrance frames (2x lifts at a time controlled on preference by Omnia Vinyl)
Phase 3:Lifts doors (2x lifts at a time controlled by onsite OTIS engineers)
We committed to complete the wrap installation within 35 days to meet the clients requested accelerated programme. Phase 1 and 2 were started simultaneously, with a 15 day target for completion for both phases. This was achieved on target keeping the project on track for phase 3 and a 20 day target for the door wrapping. We completed the door wrapping in 18 days all while working with the OTIS engineers to ensure their own programme of testing and commissioning ran to schedule.
The numbers involved in this lift wrap are staggering:
- 1536m of vinyl installed
- 672 Large architrave panels wrapped
- 672 Small frame sections wrapped
- 448 Door panels wrapped
- 222 Floor indicators wrapped
- 112 Full height call button panels wrapped
Not only was the whole lift wrap project delivered 2 days ahead of the agreed 35 day accelerated programme, but it was also fully snagged and signed off by our client within this 35 day timeframe.
