Projections from Buildings
No projections of any kind, extending more than 23 cm below a height of 4.3m, shall be permitted over the land of the road or over any drain of the vertical part of the rain water spouts projecting at the road level or the water pipe in accordance with the drainage plan, such as projections on the level of chajja, cornice, water spouts, drains, pipes, advertisement boards, and the like.

The allowances for building projections onto the public right-of-way in Washington, DC are the most permissive in North America. Building projection requirements are included in DCMR 12: Construction Code, and they require permits from both the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and the Department of Transportation in areas governed as public space (DDOT). Here is additional information on DCRA’s permission procedure, and here is more information on DDOT’s public space permitting process. Building forecasts are reviewed by the Office of Planning (OP), as well as other District and Federal agencies, through DCRA and DDOT processes.
For requests to beautify a structure, the construction code allows for exceptions from the limits on building projections (DCMR 12A-3202.4). The term “embellish” is not defined in the construction code, however it is defined in Webster’s New World College Dictionary as “to decorate or improve by adding detail; ornament; adorn.” This description is consistent with how the city has approved and managed projections, and it is backed up by the four qualities that have long been associated with building projections in DC. As part of their examination of projection code waiver applications, OP mentions the following characteristics:
1. Vertical Expression
2. Building Articulation is the second step.
3. Embellishment on the Secondary Level; and,
4. Public Space Activation
Variances from projection allowances are requested through the DCRA’s construction code modification process, which can be found here for more details. Requests for a modification from projection allowances are sent to OP and DDOT for examination and suggestion before DCRA makes a final decision on the application. The Public Space Committee, a DDOT-managed public space permit review procedure, may find that the application requires extra examination by OP or DDOT. More information about the Public Space Committee may be found here, as well as information about their evaluation procedure.
Video Mapping Specialists
Building projections may appear simple, but they are an excellent way to bring any surface to life with their vibrant colours and eye-catching art. Projection mapping is a creative technique to attract your customer and can be used for guerilla marketing, advertising, or an event such as a birthday or wedding. We can help you bring your ideas to life with our highly experienced Double Take design team; the only limit will be your imagination.
What are Building Projections?
Building projection, also known as projection mapping, is the process of projecting moving or still pictures onto a structure using specialised equipment like video projectors. You can project on a huge size building like Buckingham Palace or a small scale building like a house; whatever your chosen surface is, we can project onto it. A building projection is a great way to advertise your business and reach a large audience. Because projections aren’t as common as other forms of advertising, your message is more likely to stand out and be noticed. There isn’t a single building projection that goes ignored, and they’re frequently shared on social media by your customers because they’re so creative.
The Different Ways to Project onto Buildings
You can utilise various types of projections for your construction projection. Guerrilla Projection, for example, is the act of projecting still or moving pictures from a mobile unit onto structures without permission. Guerrilla projections are a great way to surprise your audience and get your brand out of the studio and into the streets. Visit our ‘Guerrilla Projection’ service page for additional information about guerrilla advertising.
Projection mapping is another approach to project onto a structure. The Double Take team uses projection mapping, also known as video mapping, to project and skew visuals to suit the curves of a surface. The Double Take crew has used video projection mapping on everything from cathedrals to ping pong tables; no surface is too tiny or too large for them. Any environment may be changed and altered to meet your brand’s qualities with this method of promotion. Artists and brands who wish to capture and thrill their consumers typically employ this technique. Visit our ‘Projection Mapping’ service page for additional information on projection and video mapping.
The Different Ways to Project onto Buildings
Using cutting-edge projection methods like guerrilla projections, street projections, and project mapping, you may attract new customers you never imagined. The versatility provided by constructing projections is one of the most compelling reasons to employ them. The information can be customised to fit whichever surface you’d like to project onto. Any building can be used to project this form of advertising.
There’s so much you can do with technology and visual effects – the possibilities are boundless. The Double Take team creates artwork and visual effects that may be used on any building or surface. We’ll come up with great, inventive concepts with the help of top designers to bring your projection campaign to life.
Street Projections to Increase Awareness
The use of street projections is an excellent approach to raise brand recognition. The originality of implementing this advertising method in your branding events will really stick out to people and will reach such a big audience that it will almost certainly bring in new customers. Controlling the content that goes into your video projection will help you promote your business.
To function, projection mapping does not require a lot of physical props or equipment. Having all of these items adds to the time it takes to build, transport, and set up, but with video projection, none of this time or effort is required. You only need projection equipment and your artistic work to get started.
