Design/Build is a turnkey sign development process that combines the design phase with sign fabrication and installation. This streamlined process provides the most cost savings and requires less of your time and effort.
The design/build process begins with a discovery meeting. We utilize a thorough, customer centric consultative approach designed to identify specific signage objectives and discern key facts concerning your project scope, budget and schedule. This is when we will learn about your branding story and your customers.
Once we have compiled our research and determined a sign package to address your specific objectives, we prepare a proposal that outlines our understanding of your project and delineates how our team will deliver on your sign objectives, satisfy your customers and deliver on your branding story.
If we mutually determine this will be a good partnership, we move on to conceptual design and production drawings.
Our talented design team develops several design options incorporating our sign expertise with all we have learned about your goals and your brand. We consider materials, buildability, longevity, technical aspects and much more. You will receive multiple visuals to get a feel for how the design trickles down to all the sign types within a family. Your input is very important as we create the final design.
Once the designs are finalized, our team creates construction drawings. Because of our integration of design, project management and fabrication, your signs are designed for production from the very beginning of the process which greatly improves efficiencies and takes advantage of modern construction techniques and state-of-the-art equipment at our manufacturing facilities.
Our in-house fabricators are sign craftspeople and have an average of 20 years of tenure. With their artistry and experience, they ensure quality as they follow the production drawings and ensure the signs are built to spec.
To make this process easy and stress-free for you, we provide you a single point of contact from our experienced project management (PM) team. This PM delivers your signage project efficiently and cost effectively by ensuring the process is streamlined and remains focused on your objectives. Your PM guides the approvals, manages the details and navigates the project as it moves from concept to completion.
We are proud to have worked with many customers on design/build projects that include healthcare, commercial, multi-family residential, financial, university and hospitality. Below are photos of an award-winning exterior design/build project we completed with Triton College and a testimonial from one of our long-time customers.
“We are very pleased with the results of this design/build signage program. Your team was great to work with as graphic concepts and themes were developed for the resort. The product quality and installation process were exceptional. We are also very pleased that the graphics program was completed within budget and on time, especially considering the size and complexity of the project.” – B. Kuckelman, RIDA Development Corporation
