Lidl UK

Window Roll out - 2017/18

At the end of the 2017 year, phasing through to this present year we have been involved in solidifying and standardising the Lidl’s brand by designing, manufacturing and installing new and improved window graphics for all Lidl’s UK stores. By creating and standardising the imagery to suit all Lidl’s stores, we were able to help unify the Lidl’s brand so when customers walk into any store, they would enjoy the same experience.  This project installing internal signage instore and external signage to be placed on the store windows. The main challenge during the project involved working with different window sizes at different stores across the country and adjusting the sizing and images during the design and manufacturing process to fit this perfectly. Also, a big factor we had to considering during this project was the weather and working amongst the public inside and outside of the stores and ensuring their safety was factored in throughout the installation process.

Bournemouth University

Fusion Building

During the beginning months of 2018, we were tasked with helping design and manufacture internal and external way finders to be fitted around the University’s Fusion building. The reason for the way finders were to help maximise the efficiency of the campus and point students and staff members in the correct direction. Although the University mainly utilises their own internal fitters to install the graphics, our challenge was to ensure that the designs were correctly sized for all internal and external placements and ensure that the way finders were packaged and delivered on time and undamaged. We have been able to continually produce and deliver outstanding way finders to the client and they have been thoroughly impressed with the level and quality of the work we produce and for this reason continue to support our business.

Success Factors

Lidl UK

Bakery Roll/Out – 2016

Over a 6-week period, we designed, manufactured and installed floor graphics to be implemented in all Lidl’s bakery stores across the UK. Working in collaboration with Lidl’s design team, we were able to understand that that the reason for the floor graphics were to improve the company’s procedures, health and safety guidelines, productivity and efficiency when training staff members. We were thrilled to be awarded a large scale project such as this, however completing this task in time was a challenge. The reason for this being that ever store had a different layout, so we had to trust our fitters to go in and be instructed by Lidl’s staff members on where to install the floor graphics. Including this, ensuring our fitters abided by the company’s hygiene guidelines when working in the bakery’s was a challenge as our fitters utilise different equipment to complete different installations. To avoid any issues, we instructed our fitters to utilise the minimal amount of equipment possible to ensure that our work environment did not disturb the cleanliness of the bakery. Although different challenges arose, our team we able to deal with it in a professional manor and complete the tasks on time and the outcome from the bakery rollouts were outstanding. This project is a continual task as we still supply floor graphics to the company to be fitted in new stores across the UK that are newly built and current stores that are being revamped.

Royal Bournemouth Hospital

Ongoing Work - 2009/Present

The Royal Bournemouth Hospital is an acute general hospital based in Bournemouth and is a part of the Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. With roughly 60,000 patients seen to a year, it has been an honour to be able to design, manufacture and install graphics around the hospital to be seen and enjoyed by many. At the hospital we have been involved in designing, manufacturing and installing internal directories; to help direct people around the hospital, wrapping entrance doors; to help create a warm welcome to the hospital and placing vinyl’s on ward doors; to help differentiate the different wards in the hospital. The main challenges we have faced during these projects has been trying to work in such a busy environment and around sick patients. The wards at the hospital are constantly busy, so with this, sometimes we are unable to start or complete an installation. The reason for this is that some wards may be shut down due to many different reasons and with this we would have to reschedule with the client to come back and complete the task at a more convenient time. At Think Signs we aim to be versatile and help our clients wherever possible, so we are happy to reschedule and come back to complete any task and ensure that the client is fully satisfied with the work produced.

TransDev - The Power in Motion

New Signage, 2018

After a series of visuals were agreed Think Signs advised on the best way to install and adapt the designs for the specific requirements of the building fascias. We also helped maximise sheet utilisation thereby minimising waste and keeping the project within its budget. A twin post totem style was chosen to maximise the durability of these signs.

Working with TransDev was a real pleasure, and their materials were absolutely first class and extremely easy to work with. The supplied Iribond aluminium panel was a good colour match and folded easily to the sign tray specifications. Policril cast acrylic again provided a wide colour offering, whilst being easy to machine to create the required letter designs. Certainly a cut above!

Policril Acrylic plastics supplied by TransDev were used for 3D lettering and graphics, along with vinyls for detailing. The cutting out of plastics was undertaken both by TransDev and Think Signs. Sign trays were also manufactured from TransDev supplied blue Iribond aluminum composite sheet by Think Signs. Both materials offered excellent weather and UV resistance and with a broad colour range enabled close matches to the TransDev brand colours. The totems also featured the TransDev anniversary icon on their reverse, with the use of vinyl and raised acrylic lettering used to provide further depth and impact.

What is an architectural finish?

Architectural finishes are a self-adhesive surface option for covering existing surfaces within bars, hotels, restaurants, retail and many more commercial spaces.

We can help you transform your decor both inside and out.

 
 
 

Benefits of Architectural Finishes


1: Your personality will shine through

Since our architectural finishes can be applied to virtually any surface – doors, walls, elevators, ceilings, columns, cabinets and millwork to name a few - we can help transform any space. Reception areas to offices, bathrooms to kitchens, we can tailor any room to your own specific preferences.

2: You save time and money

Architectural Finishes produce less waste and require less labour. This ensures less down time during the installation so you, your staff and your business don’t have to suffer through long term renovations.

3: You can be as creative as you want

If you are looking for a bold feature for either your interior or exterior walls, we have plenty of options to choose from. Our architectural films enable you to customise the look and feel of any space allowing your creativity to shine.
