TPA and St Vincent Street.

Scottish Power St Vincent Street site handover- another TPA success story

  • TPA recently handed over the hoarding constructed on behalf of Scottish Power in Glasgow’s city centre
  • The high profile site, which will soon house Scottish Power’s HQ, had been lying in abeyance for some time, was subject to all forms of anti-social behaviour (including fly posting and fly tipping) and had laterally become extremely unsafe, posing a genuine threat to passers by
  •  TPA were asked to assist by introducing their streetshield concept, which ensured the site was protected thus keeping the general public safe prior to the construction company breaking ground. And, being well screened, this gateway site was effectively screened to avoid sending out the wrong signals of an untreated site so close to the Glasgow2014 Commonwealth Games
  • TPA’s duty of care also meant that, in the interim, the newly protective hoarding was maintained and kept free from fly posting and graffiti
  • Most significantly, with TPA’s unique expertise in operating authorised poster schemes, the site was transformed in the short term and offered local arts and culture advertisers a legal and cost effective platform to showcase their events, thus boosting the local economy
  • This once neglected and unsafe site is now a hub of activity with the construction of the HQ well underway
  • As planned, Scottish Power have now taken full ownership of the screen, painting and branding the hoarding to gain maximum impact. We’re sure you’ll agree it looks marvellous
  • All in all, another successful TPA project with positive outcomes for all involved over the course of the initiative. See more images from the St Vincent Street project in our Gallery
