Frequently asked questions
What is site signage?
Site signage is temporary or permanent signage used on developments to highlight the new build and drive awareness and sales. There are so many different formats and materials available. Often clients have an idea about what they’d like, but a limited budget – so we draw on our expertise of different materials to deliver the same look and feel using lower cost signage materials. Similarly, some high-end builds require a luxury, premium finish, so we select the highest quality signage materials to support luxury brands.
What is the signage installation process?
From initial briefing we begin developing the signage concept. We then conduct a site or technical survey and put the signage designs together. When this is approved, we begin manufacture. Our installation team then installs the finished signage in position. We also offer maintenance throughout the life-cycle of the signs. Please read our Eight steps to signage installation to find out more.
Do you supply all over the UK?
Yes, we have teams that deliver and install all over the UK.
What is the lead-time to install a sign?
Typical lead times vary depending on the complexity of the project. A small hoarding project could be turned around in a few days and more complex projects – such as fabricated letters or wayfinding signage – could be anything from two to four weeks. Some signage projects will require planning permission, so we’ll also allow for that, and we can even apply for permission on your behalf.
Can you deliver innovative large-scale branding?
Yes – we’re expert at taking 2D designs and recreating them in large-format, 3D installations that are creative and innovative. Our team of talented designers helps bring brands to life; whether it’s for a one-off bespoke signage project, or for a nationwide network of new housing marketing suites.
How can you support me throughout the life-cycle of my development?
As your development moves through different stages of the build, it’s important to keep signage fresh and engaging. We can help you regularly update messages using bold colour changes and refresh any signage in the event of damage.
Do you work with external designers?
Yes, we have our own in-house studio, but our project managers also often work directly with a client’s own design team. We work collaboratively with property developers, construction companies, architects, creative agencies and design consultants to ensure every project is completed successfully.
What if my signage requirements change?
Projects often change along the way and if you need additional signage or the specification changes, we have the flexibility to respond. Even the highest quality materials can eventually become damaged, worn or out-of-date. We continue to support you by replacing signage if necessary. We also take down signage at the end of its life, disposing of all material in accordance with environmental regulations and best practice.
Can I illuminate signage?
Yes – lighting is a superb way of making the most of the best vantage points and highlighting messages. LEDs are available in many variations and can be used with timers in sensitive residential areas, also making it more cost-effective. They can include lightboxes, strip lighting and halo-illuminated.
