Project Delivery

The signage scheme consisted of interpretation monolith signs that presented historical timelines and a set of creative sculptures along the canals. The monoliths were manufactured from aluminium and steel with printed vitreous enamel panels, with corton steel edging strips to the exterior framework. This required precise technical drawings from the isGroup and a close working relationship with a specialist Foundry, sourced by the team to ensure all elements were suitable.
