Last week signalled the completion of the largest scaffold wrap in Europe; mode worked alongside our long standing client BAM Construction on behalf of Selfridges.

The striking pink and black dogtooth cladding, called “The Dogtooth Flower” has been created by Osman Yousefzada in partnership with the city’s Ikon Gallery and has been placed around the building whist work to make the building more eco friendly is being carried out.

In addition all of its 15,000+ iconic silver disks will removed, cleaned and then be re-painted in its original Yves Klein blue; the disks will then be reattached.

mode transport planning were approached by Bam Construction to prepare specific Highways Permit Licences for a range of activities within the highway; as part of this process mode consulted Birmingham City Council, Transport for West Midlands, National Express and the┬áCommonwealth Games committee to ensure the iconic design could be implemented with as little disruption as possible, on one of the city’s busiest public transport corridors.
