Fosse Park Food Central window vinyl graphics installation guide

To mark the multi-million-pound launch of the 140,000 sq. ft. new Fosse Park West Food Central in Leicester, Studio One was tasked to design, produce and install the interior and exterior window graphics across 12 single and multi-storey units and a total of 42 giant storefront windows. The overall coverage of window vinyl graphics for the project measured over 600 sq metres, all produced in-house.

10 day installation

Ahead of installation, our fully accredited installation team initially pre-fit prepped and cleaned the window areas for an optimal application and finish. The window vinyls were a mixture of internal and external glazing and therefore used different window film substrates. We printed onto clear, self-adhesive removable vinyl for the internal windows, backed up with white vinyl to add vibrancy and minimise transparency, as it was important to not be able to see through into the empty units. The external window graphics were printed directly onto white removable vinyl with a matt protective laminate. The entire installation process from start to finish took just 10 working days ahead of the deadline and ready for the public launch on 12th April.

Environmental challenges

Our specialist installation team worked to height using multi-storey lifts and scaffold towers. As this was during the height of the pandemic, they had to be mindful of other work personnel on-site, socially distancing and keeping the use of equipment to a minimum due to restrictions on space in the working environment. A key challenge was the intricate fitting around existing signage rails, taking into consideration window mullions in both the design layouts and fitting within these areas. We also had to carefully consider sensitive elements of the building, protecting the high-end ceramic flooring from any damage while we worked.

Post launch aftercare

Following the launch on 12th April, after-care checks by Studio One. We were also tasked to update the window vinyls with a retro fitted solution to announce new occupance, without removing the vinyl window graphics already fitted.
