Bury College came to us to with a variety of signage needs – they had updated their logo and branding and wanted to reflect the new values in signage – a name change for the building as well as new logos meant a unique opportunity to showcase the college.
The result was stunning built-up letters which creates an truly iconic visage along the top of the building.

The new Bury College University lettering and logo presented some unique challenges in terms of the height of the building. We used state of the art ‘Spike’ software to digitally measure the dimensions at the top of the building to ensure that the letters were manufactured to the right size in line with the supplied CGI visual. We coordinated specialised high access equipment which would navigate the 8m distance from the wall to the nearest vehicle spot and even worked with Bury Council to secure the relevant permits to work and make the process as smooth as possible for the client. The result was stunning built-up stainless steel letters, each a robust 1m tall which create an truly iconic visage along the top of the building.
