Hope Park Workspaces Illuminated Signage
Hope Park Workspaces, recently opening their Salford Workspace on Carolina Way, and with Seymour Sign & Print being literally over the road, were invited to tender for their internal and external illuminated signage. Not the typical work that Seymour Sign & Print are known for, so it made a refreshing change for the team to get involved with this project.
The initial brief was for built up letters, with halo illumination that another tenant on the estate had, whilst that was entirely possible, following further conversations with the client, and explaining how these halo lit letters would need to be installed, we advised on an alternative option.
The primary concern for the client was the number of holes that would need to be drilled into the external brickwork to fix these letters securely at height, along with the requirement to ideally drill through into the building to conceal the wiring for each letter, or tun the cabling externally.
The alternative proposal put forward, was for a powder aluminum folded tray, with fret cut face, all matched to the clients corporate colours. This installation meant that far fewer holes would need to be drilled, resulting in less disruption to the occupants of the building. All of the electrical components could be concealed within the tray, with only a short external cable visible for the main feed to the tray.
As part of the project Seymour Sign & Print were tasked with replacing an internal halo lit reception sign. With the number of holes in the wall from this sign, and the rough textured slate tiled wall, again the proposal for a folded tray with back tray was proposed to contain the light fully within the sign, and cover all of the previous fixing holes.
