Signs Express provides Cambridge Council with a signage makeover

Signs Express Cambridge and Huntingdon has provided Cambridge Council's customer service centre with a signage makeover. The franchise was given the project over its rivals after providing the most competitive price.

Cambridge Council had completely refurbished its customer service centre in the heart of the city using in-house architects and external contractors for the renovations. It was then just a case of the Signs Express team converting the architect's ideas into a signage reality. With such a broad range of product requirements the centre set to work producing internal directory and decorative signs, main external signs, door and reception signs, frosted window graphics as well as safety window film, poster hanging displays and literature stands.

Nick Dowell, Business Development Manager, says: 'We have dealt with different Council departments over the years, mainly in arts and entertainment, so it was great to branch out and become involved in another area. The Council wanted to modernise the building by creating a brand new customer service centre so set to work on refurbishing inside and out. The architects working on the project provided us with guide drawings detailing what they wanted from their signage and we then interpreted the illustrations into producible signage to match the budget.'

Nova Roberts, Head of customer services for Cambridge City Council, comments: 'Our new customer service centre is a key part of our plan to improve the quality of our customer services. We commissioned Signs Express to provide a number of internal and external signage solutions, which were produced to a high standard, on time and on budget. We really appreciated the flexibility of the Signs Express team and their professional approach to the project.'
