Background

Nadia called us in to talk about signage for the existing main entrance, the big new building and the community centre at Sacred Heart collage of imagesthe back of the school.  Nadia knew she wanted individual letters and logos, but it was a case of surveying the sites together, measuring up and advising on options.  The signs were needed around 3 weeks later when the new building opened.  We needed to create or find a new ‘Bleeding Heart’ logo which we selected some ideas for together, so Matthew at our Bristol office created that for her.

The Quotation

We quoted her 3-4 days later also providing her with all the attached proofs.  There were (& still will be) signs for the Catholic church behind school but these have to go to English Heritage for approval, so this will be a separate order.  Nadia was quick in coming back, which is always helpful and we soon (after a couple of tweaks) had approvals.  As you can see from the photos, the whole job was for individual routed letters and logos.

Installation & Access

Due to the height of the large set on the new building we had to get Nationwide Lifts to survey the site as access was also tricky.  We kept up the dialogue with Nadia and the caretaker by phone and e-mail to co-ordinate this survey and indeed the organisation of the actual install.

Challenges

Challenges included the fact that we could only work on the main entrance signs when the children had left for the day. The key to this job being so successful were the people involved.  Nadia (and Mike the caretaker) wanted this to happen, and happen quickly so were as quick to respond as we were.  Often we are waiting on the customer to respond to quotes…place order…respond to proofs…re-proofs…approve, etc so it was good in this case that both sides worked well together.  It was a good two-way process with both sides in constant communication. 

The Result

Head of School, Nadia, was over the moon with the result, the feedback and also the way in which our installers conducted themselves, as you can see from the glowing testimonial. Many thanks to Bristol branch manager Jerry and installers Nial and Matt for a job very well done!
