Project details

Charlotte Newson was commissioned to deliver the first public artwork in Manchester to celebrate Emmeline Pankhurst -international icon and famous Suffragette. BCL was appointed to move the photo mosaic from the Rates Hall at Manchester Town Hall to the UKFast Campus for a special event marking the symbolic nature of Emmeline and her influence on Women’s Rights.

The portrait was a daunting prospect measuring 2.5m tall and 1.8m wide, mounted on a solid wooden frame. The process started with removing the portrait out the wooden stand, then carefully taking the digital print off the solid wood frame and export wrapping each individual element. The crew were issued white cotton gloves to avoid spoiling the art with fingerprints.

Once wrapped the portrait was loaded onto a designated vehicle and taken to the UKFast Campus. The portrait was taken to the first floor where the event was due to take place. Once in position the crew carefully unwrapped the portrait, reattached the print onto the wooden frame and placed it back in the stand.

After the event had taken place BCL were then instructed to reverse the process and safely take the portrait back to its original position in the Rates Hall.

When managing something so unique, and in many ways priceless, it is important to ensure the crew are well prepared and have the time and tools to take great care of the item.

Charlotte was extremely happy with the whole process and thanked the crew for all their hard work.

May I take this opportunity of offering a huge thanks to you and your extremely professional team.

Your personnel, to a man, were very professional, efficient and tremendously helpful, coupled with being very courteous. An absolute pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble.

So many thanks to you all at BCL and I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm.

I would appreciate it if you would pass on my comments to the whole team.

Everyone was really helpful and very friendly

I would just like to say thank you so much for all you and your teams help on Friday. It went really successful and myself and my manager were really happy with the service. Everyone was really helpful and very friendly.

 I will definitely keep you in mind for the end of January when our offices shut down again and return to the lock up.

Professional, accommodating and the result is a job well done

Signed the job off with Simon today. Sandringham is completely cleared, not sure how they managed it in 5 days. Absolutely excellent.

All the team were very professional, accommodating and the result is a job well done. The crew never stopped and had to deal with lots personalities with their demands.

Thanks to each member of the team. Definitely time for a glass of wine or Ten!
