About construction site hoarding

Construction site hoarding can be creative, eye-catching printed art displays installed to a fence on a construction site perimeter. The hoarding helps keep the site safe and also provides an aesthetically appealing display. Art hoarding was added at 148 Street and 99 Avenue to celebrate Candy Cane Lane festivities in late 2020/early 2021. Photos of the hoarding are shown below:

 

Community Art Contest

Many residents have seen the large worksite at 148 Street and Summit Drive. EPCOR would like to try to improve the look of that site by putting community art on the construction fence hoarding. We would like that art to come from you! The location selected to display the construction art hoarding will be Worksite #1 - 148 Street and Summit Drive.
