Top 5 Benefits of Building Site Hoarding Construction

Site hoarding is a temporary form of signage that is mandatory for any construction business undertaking building work. It is utilised for safety and security purposes, although it is also a great marketing tool that provides protection and is extremely cost effective.


1. Secures your project

One of the main benefits of implementing building site hoarding is that it provides security for your construction site, which can help prevent theft and financial loss.

All construction companies must ensure that they implement a form of prevention for unauthorised persons entering your construction site. This involves securing a perimeter and implementing suitable signs before any construction work is conducted.

2. Protects the public

A prominent advantage of site hoarding is that it protects the general public from serious injury, by creating barriers around safety hazards such as:

  • On-site vehicles
  • Falling objects
  • Construction equipment
  • Noise, dust or vibration
  • Roadworks
  • Slips and trips near pedestrian walkways

We ensure that your site hoarding is fitted efficiently to cover the entire construction space. Whether it is a small or large space, we can work with you to protect the public and avoid any financial loss due to extensive compensation claims.

3. Protect your project

The great thing about site hoarding is that it not only protects the public, but it also protects your construction project before completion.

If you do not want your project to be revealed before it is completely finished, site hoarding can help to keep it under wraps. We can work with you to create site hoarding signage that enables your site to blend in with the surrounding area and avoid exposure.

The site hoarding will act as a visible barrier, allowing your business to work incognito. You can ensure the end result is perfected and fully ready, before making a grand reveal and impressing your customers with your innovative project.

4. Cost-effective protection

One of the most beneficial elements of site hoarding is its ability to provide a cost-effective solution for your construction business.

Our site hoarding allows you to reduce protection and advertising costs, as our sustainable signage can be re-used for future projects.

It is also extremely easy to install, which means the installation period will be quick and cost efficient.

5. Advertising

Building site hoarding is not only a great form of protection, but it also enables you to create advertising campaigns to promote your project.

Here at Marketing Works, we can help you create bespoke signs that will generate interest in your project whilst the site is constructed. This could involve creating graphics to showcase the finished project, whilst also promoting your construction company.

It is also a great way of advertising your brand. For example, you could utilise printed site hoarding signs for a shop opening, in order to showcase your brand or products before the big reveal.

Benefits of buying (rather than hiring) building site hoarding

Yes, site hoarding is a temporary structure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that hiring is the best (and cheapest!) option. By their very nature, most construction projects last a long time and there’s always a chance they could run over schedule. It’s surprising how quickly a ‘hire bill’ can mount up.

Investing in your own building site hoarding is often the more cost-effective option. You’re in control of how much you spend. The hoarding is yours to keep and – offering fantastic value for money – it can be used time and time again for future projects, either with the same graphics or new designs.

Buying your own building site hoarding also allows you to customise the boards. They’re made bespoke-to-order and, with the assistance our professionals – here at Marketing Works – you’re free to tailor the design to your needs. Advertise the current project, showcase your brand, engage with the community – the choice is yours and we’re to help create the perfect site hoarding for you.

The benefits of graphic design

Graphic design is about more than just appearances, and provides many more benefits than simply making something look good. Its importance is often underestimated, but good design can bring many significant business benefits. When used effectively graphic design can boost your company’s marketing and messaging through visual communication, giving it greater power to inform, educate, or persuade your audience. Here are some of the benefits:

Professionalism and Consistency

You want your company to make a great first impression. The use of logos, pictures and design can help create a professional image of your company in the eyes of your audience. When properly applied, graphic design offers visual consistency through all of your marketing efforts, which builds your company’s identity and brand recognition.

Identity and Brand Recognition

Graphic design helps establish your visual identity, which reflects your company’s mission and values. Your company’s branding begins with a great logo then expands to every aspect of your business communications, be it stationery, presentation templates, brochures,
ads, websites or video. All of these things work together to build your identity and brand recognition. Your brand should provide an instant connection to your company’s mission and values as well as to the products and services that you offer, and good graphic design can forge that kind of connection.


Graphic design extends beyond establishing identity and brand recognition. It can be very effective at attracting attention and encouraging your audience to want to learn more. It also can be employed to produce visual aids that can better help you communicate your ideas. An informative image can transmit ideas that cannot be expressed with words alone. You can use professionally designed images to create a positive impression and help strengthen your message.

Build Trust, Goodwill & Loyalty

A well designed brand helps create a professional appearance that builds trust and credibility, which is essential to growing your business. Your brand fosters unity and commitment among your employees by providing them an identity and values to rally behind and promote. Trust plays a crucial role in convincing buyers about the quality of your products or services. Companies that thrive are ones that have developed a brand that is trusted. Good design plays a key role in creating communication that can enhance that trust.

Increase Sales & Market Position

With good graphic design, you not only gain high visibility, but you can also convert your audience into buyers, leading to increased sales. All of the above benefits can contribute to one powerful result: more sales and revenue for your business.
The use of good design can improve many aspects of your business. Contact us to find out how we can help you strengthen your communication, marketing, and brand through graphic design.
