A wrapped twelve story building… 3M headquarters made it happen.

Jeff Roosa, owner of DPI Graphics, was able to live a dream when he was selected to lead up an amazing coordinated wrap installation for 3M Headquarters in Saint Paul, Minnesota USA in August this year.  Together with his handpicked crew of, Matt Sorg, Carl Brewer, Sergio Yakobchak and Ben Anderson, the installation team worked 24 hours a day for three days straight in 8 hour shifts to complete the project.  To make matters even more interesting, the shape of the building required a custom powered scaffolding while the sheer massive size of the work required a highly detailed grid pattern to keep the hundreds of individually produced panels organized and efficient.

This monumental effort was scheduled to coincide with the 2018 3M Discovering Transformations Media Day.

Attendees of the event were invited to the 3M headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota for a chance to hear about industry trends, upcoming products as well as new and innovative technologies. The day consisted of a keynote presentation from Peter Elliot on “Impactful Transformations”, and a panel discussion with 3M experts. Guests had the opportunity to tour 3M’s Innovation Center and the Carlton Science Center, as well as participate in hands-on demonstrations with 3M products including Wrap Film Series 1080, Safety and Security Film, 3M Graphics Hub and Envision Print Wrap Film 480mC. Additionally, attendees got a front-row view of the new 12-story building wrap itself.  “Curiosity is just the beginning” was the wrap message as it coincides with the 3M mission to encourage everyone to begin to look at every surface as a canvas.
