UNIVERSITY OF KENT
To ensure success, DMA Signs and the 'Design Team' worked together to develop a coherent project management methodology. For the internal signage, it took 450 linear meters of vinyl to cover every required wall surface, selecting the most suitable products that would adhere the material to acid-etched glass. For the external signage, we fabricated monoliths from aluminium and incorporated a cut-through detail, to mirror the design of the internal graphics. Our client was delighted with the end result.
DMA Signs were challenged to develop a sign family and produce cost effective, innovative and environmental graphic solutions to key aspects of the building. The challenge of the project was to confirm in advance, all dimensions to ensure stability, build ability and efficient manufacture, and develop in conjunction with the Main Contractor, scaled shop drawings for final approval prior to production. Timescales for the project were extremely tight, we were asked to install all signage over just two weekends - and, naturally, compromising on quality and finish to meet the deadline was not an option.
