EYE CATCHING ILLUMINATED SIGNAGE
Kier Construction asked us to tender for the external illuminated signage for the new STEM Building at City College Plymouth.
Local architects ADG devised a plan for two sets of 850mm illuminated letters, so once the tender was awarded we worked closely with Kier and Progressive Systems to devise a method of fitting the text securely to the inner insulation wall whilst simultaneously wiring in each letter whilst the cladding was being fitted.
The result is a very eye catching installation which blends in well with the tri-colour cladding and company brand.
The illumination was provided using state of the art external LED light units, housed within a powdercoated steel letter case which in turn illuminates through an acrylic face. The use of LEDs rather than the traditional neon keeps the carbon footprint to a minimum and in turn aids the sustainability aims for the main contractor.
