Sleek and sustainable
In order to meet the sustainability requirements of Hilson Moran, a leading firm of building consulting engineers, Vinyl Impression has produced and installed several wall decorations using Phototex.

This self-adhesive fabric material is fully recyclable, fully removable and repositionable and never damages walls or leaves a sticky residue. In addition, it is also very easy to install, all of which made Phototex the ideal solution for Hilson Moran.

Hilson Moran provides a comprehensive range of services in connection with buildings and the built environment. Emma Gold, Senior Graphic Designer for Hilson Moran explained: “Sustainability is core to our values and beliefs. As a significant provider of professional advice, assessment, and design services, we recognise our responsibility to encourage sustainable development and to understand and manage business activities in order to prevent pollution. We also strive to ensure that the best practicable environmental options are always proposed to protect the environment, while achieving our business aims.”

Thus, one of the company’s biggest concerns prior to starting the project was ensuring that any printed decorations were made of sustainable and recyclable materials. Emma continued: “We hadn’t worked with a vinyl decoration consultant before, and Vinyl Impression was one of several suppliers we contacted. Vinyl Impression was extremely detailed in its desire to understand our needs and the solutions =it proposed exactly met our requirements. It was also the only supplier to send us a material sample, which gave us a great idea of how the final prints would look and how easy it was to use the proposed material.”

In fact, installing Phototex was very easy and the installation went very smoothly with no surprises or problems. Emma recalled: “Everyone in the office was very impressed with the quality of the work. The installation process was, in a word, reassuring.  Our questions were swiftly answered following the survey undertaken by Vinyl Impression, which comfortably allayed any fears we had.  Everything was well organised, and I was well prepared for what to expect. It was First Class customer service!”

The fact that Phototex, a PVC-free fabric, is fully recyclable, meant that it fully met Hilson Moran’s key sustainability requirements.  In 2021, the company joined the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, which requires companies to implement a detailed roadmap to reduce carbon emissions and increase renewably sourced energy within occupied assets – including a pledge to only occupy assets that are net-zero carbon in operation by 2030. In 2021 Hilson Moran launched its Carbon Manifesto, which sets out that by 2030 the company will achieve net-zero carbon and adhere to circular economy principles.  It also operates an Environmental Management System that meets the requirements of ISO 14001, as externally certified by BM Trada.

Emma concluded: “The final effect of the project is superb! The installers took good care to ensure that everything ran smoothly and achieved a perfect result. It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Vinyl Impression and to use Phototex and I would happily recommend both the company and the product!”
