Municipal – Oct 2009
Architectural Signage in a Municipal Facility
Accessibility for all is critical in all public sector buildings. Braille and tactile, strong panel colours and clear contrasting text is all important.
The external signage must give clear directions and truly portray an inviting attractive welcoming image.
- System signs manufactured to ISO 9002 standards, with warranties. Durable, Flexible and Easily Maintained.
This month we feature projects in the Municipal sector:
- OPW New Headquarter Building,Trim, Co Meath,
- Birr Civic Offices and Library,
- Claremorris Area Offices,
- Virginia Courthouse, Co Cavan,
- Cavan County Council & Library.
OPW New Headquarter Building,Trim, Co Meath
Working with the OPW Architect's Department a signage schedule was compiled to include a variety of products.
We were particularly pleased to have successfully tendered for signage for the prestigious new Headquarter Building home to the Office of Public Works located in Trim Co. Meath. The fit-out of this landmark building was with OPW Architects with whom we participated with the ‘Wayfinder’ process. The sign schedule was compiled to complement the unique architectural style of this very attractive modern facility.
Brushed stainless steel lettering was used to name the building with MG Messenger monoliths displaying the excellent new graphic corporate image.
Warm grey raised cut out numerals, pictos and lettering were used in conjunction with the MG Classic system doorplates and suspended signs in grey. Colour was cleverly used in the designation of floors.
