Signage Installation and Renewal for Gleniffer High School
We love when a project comes along which forces us to put our thinking caps on. Gleniffer High School, a customer for almost 25 years, reached out to us to find out how we could update and invigorate their school crest signage, school motto sign and if we could design a set of department signage. ‘Of course’ was the answer and we are delighted to share the finished product. All works were carried out during the school holidays or after hours, meaning the safety of staff and students was not compromised and our fitters were left in peace to get the job done!
The existing crest signs looked a bit tired and were in need of upgrading and while the saying ‘bigger is always better’ isn’t always true, in this case it was, as the existing signage was bonded to the wall and would damage the paintwork when removed. Rather than the school facing the expense of repainting we suggested super-wide format printed signage, an idea which the school loved. The result was 4 new crest signs, each 1.8m x 1.8m, again bonded on to the wall with no visible fixings through the face of the sign.
In the same vein, the school motto sign is larger than the previous one (almost 10 metres long!) and covers the unpainted area behind the old sign. This was produced in 4 sections to make it easy to bring inside the building and install, but as with every job quality is key and the joins are invisible. Of course, with signage of this size ease of fitting is key to safety therefore an indoor scissor lift was hired for the installation. Taking great care that no damage was done within the school, we specified machine with non-marking tyres.
The final part of this project was the creation of new signage at the entrance to each department of the school. The school wanted to bring a sense of uniformity to the department signage and we came up with a simple, yet elegant design involving the school’s colours. Again, these are bonded to the wall with no visible fixings, keeping mess and noise to an absolute minimum, and allowing the work to be carried out safely whilst other contractors were working in the school.
