In 2019 isGroup was appointed by Alliance Leisure to manufacture and install external and internal signage, for the £17 million development on Rhyl promenade – SC2.
SC2 is Rhyl’s answer to the much-loved Sun Centre, which was demolished back in 2016. It is the latest project in the town’s multi-million-pound regeneration master plan, which includes two hotels and the refurbishment of the Pavilion Theatre – a project isGroup was also involved in.
Once an initial survey to determine access equipment and installation method was carried out, concept and CAD designs, along with the planning application were completed.
isGroup produced external signage that consisted of high level built up internally illuminated SC2 letters and logo. Two large sets of the SC2 logos were produced along with one smaller SC2 logo, which were mounted onto the external building cladding. Each set was created with opal acrylic faces and translucent turquoise vinyl, in keeping with the SC2 branding and installed at almost 10 metres above ground level. isGroup’s installation team is extensively trained in working at height and have the appropriate MEWP and PASMA qualifications.
A double-sided external totem was installed with two digital screens, which included built-in media players and a fret-cut illuminated header section, displaying the SC2 logo. The digital screens were equipped with plug and play images and videos, which could be changed and altered to suit the needs of SC2, while being remotely controlled.
The internal signage was designed and created to adhere to the branding of the new SC2. isGroup worked closely with the local council to design and produce a variety of signage for the internal areas of the waterpark, which included:
– Window and floor vinyl graphics
– Brushed aluminium composite toilet signs and vinyl graphics Suspended information signs
– Slide signs
– Height restriction signs
– Reception welcome sign
The completed installation provided a modern and highly visible building to the Rhyl skyline, both the water park and adventure centre are sure to evoke memories of school holidays spent in the Sun Centre.
