For Signbox, every anniversary that celebrates another year in business is special but, when it’s marked by a powerful testimonial from one of the world’s most respected organisations during a period that most companies would prefer to consign to history, it’s more than just worthy of note. Architectural signs and environmental graphics
For 35 years, brands that span continents and market sectors have trusted Signbox to design and deliver award-winning signage solutions that make a winning difference to the way their people and guests interact with their environments. From iconic architectural signs and intelligent wayfinding signs to the hugely popular Hey! range of social distancing signs and stickers, Signbox signage solutions have given showstopping performances that continue to keep people informed, engaged and safe.
But don’t take our word for it. We couldn’t be prouder of the testimonial we received from Multiplex, the global construction company for whom we designed and installed a vast package of architectural signs, wayfinding signs, glass manifestation and safety signs at Twentytwo, a prestigious new London City workplace concept.
Twentytwo is set in the heart of the capital’s financial district at 22 Bishopsgate, where we were commissioned by Multiplex to supply and install Category A architectural signs to all 62 floors and stairwells of the 62-storey building. This challenging project saw all signs manufactured inhouse by Signbox’s expert signmakers at our manufacturing base in Egham, Surrey.
Multiplex rated on key elements of quality alongside commercial and site performance and we’re delighted to share the details of this glowing review:
The 22 Bishopsgate project required a high level of quality; the main reason for selecting Signbox was due to the level of quality, detail and support it provided throughout the tender stages. Through the pre-construction stages and construction stages Signbox provided the upmost level of quality and the samples provided demonstrated the exact quality we would receive on site. The quality of installed works was to a high standard and showed no signs of defects.
Throughout the tender and construction process it was a pleasure to work with Signbox; variations only occurred through client additions to the contract. Signbox had no hidden agenda to apply for variations by intentionally leaving out scope from their tender during the tender stages – the tender submission was concise, thorough and detailed the client’s requirements exactly. The budget for the signage package was slightly over, but Signbox helped hold VE (Value Engineering) workshops so the client could still achieve the same quality at the budget they had with the help of Signbox’s expertise and advice in altering some base materials which, to the eye, you wouldn’t even spot the difference. Each month, Signbox submitted an application for payment on time with the required level of build-up needed to help assess their claim for that period, which was always fair and reasonable.
I cannot fault the performance in which Signbox operated on site. Greg Bailey and the team excelled with the delivery of the signage package. We were never kept waiting for them to carry out their works, they were always ready and helped achieve the programme set. Signbox worked with us on delivering this challenging project and no issues arose from their package of works. The communication was second to none and they delivered on what they said they would do. They complied with all company and site procedures and were always ahead of their game.
I would strongly recommend Signbox for all my future projects and for anyone considering using them too. As a business they really do deliver on the triangle of Time/Cost/Quality. Greg, Brett and the rest of the team were all easy to work with and really did deliver on their promise of ensuring the client expectations were met.”
The Twentytwo project remains one of the most remarkable projects Signbox has ever undertaken but, despite all the economic uncertainty the coronavirus pandemic has bought, the signs are pointing firmly to many more anniversaries, showstopping performances and exciting encores. It goes without saying that, since our unrelenting passion for signage excellence will never be diminished, we hope there’ll be many more five-star reviews like this to shout about too.
On behalf of everyone on the Signbox team, we’d like to thank all our clients, past and present for helping us to reach this incredible 35-year milestone.
