Ascent 3 - Farnborough
In addition to this high elevation signage, we delivered a range of interior signage, bespoke signage furniture which mirrored the look a feel of an airport display board and included the design of directory listings, illuminated reception signage and back-decorated glass panels.
The high-level LED illuminated logo was manufactured from folded 3mm aluminium 8700mm x 1800mm x 200mm deep overall and coated to the client corporate Pantone brand colour with internal mild steel support frame with hanging arms and ceiling plates to suit. Mounted to the face of the sign was a built-up flat faced 3mm aluminium logo, coated white matt inside and corporate brand colours to the outside. The logo was a manufactured with a built-up 3mm aluminium back tray with welded spacers to suit, with internal halo WHITE 12v/24v LED illumination, 1600mm high 'D' with 100mm deep returns re: 'DISCOVER'.
DMA Signs worked in collaboration with design architects ‘Gensler’ to deliver high-quality bespoke signage for ‘Discover’s’ new UK corporate headquarters, from high-elevation, exterior illuminated lettering to reception signage, directory listings and way-finding.
The high elevation lettering posed the biggest challenge, due to its sheer scale and requirements for intensive structural requirements to achieve the architect’s vision. The client also required a simple and safe access solution to allow the LED drivers to be maintained and replaced, so we produced an IP rated accessible enclosure to the roof area.
