The Campbell County Public Library had a problem. Its monument sign with the associated readerboard was outdated and not working for the location. Because an off-brand reader was used, it lacked some of the functionalities that would have been necessary for an adequate display aimed at traffic. When the Library connected with our sign shop, we went ahead with the steps needed to put up a new LED readerboard monument sign in Gillette, WY.
A Site Survey Focuses on Space Suitability and Zoning Rules
When most people think of site surveys for signage permitting, they automatically think of the to-scale drawings that need to be submitted. However, there is so much more to the process. For starters, we asked the client to identify the location where they wanted to have their monument sign installed.
Next, we measured to ensure that this spot was in keeping with the local zoning rules. Because we know the rules, we have no problem with the permitting process. Another critical step is the appointment with city workers to locate utilities and verify that the structure could go on the pinpointed spot.
Monument Sign Design and Fabrication
A monument sign is a combination of art and science. It must be brand-focused, communicate effectively with drivers and pedestrians, and fit in with the building’s overall architecture. Therefore, it takes careful planning to get the sizes right, gauge the traffic speed for letter height measurements, and calculate the strength of the individual elements from the engineering point of view.
Finally, the aesthetics have to be in place. We presented the client with design options and color choices that would look fantastic in the space allotted for the sign. After the client chose the design that appealed to them, we turned the production over to our manufacturer. They built a monument sign that followed our specs. Look closely, and you notice the great appearance of natural rock and brick elements, which are actually made of foam.
Product Installation and Site Cleanup
Next, we worked with Daktronics, who is our preferred partner for electronic displays and animation boards. The experts there suggested the needed upgrades that would make the display readable from a distance. Moreover, they resolved other display issues by selecting colors and similar visual details. Finally, they set up a cloud-based method of uploading messages, graphics, and animations. Our team handled the installation.
