Lights, camera, action!
Space Studios Manchester won the Regeneration Category award at the recent RICS awards 2018. Judges commented on the striking nature of the development which is a purpose built facility for high end TV film and commercial production.
isGroup’s involvement with Space Studios began back in 2014 working alongside PRP Architects, Mace and Willmott Dixon Construction to deliver the branding and wayfinding solution throughout the scheme for stages one to five.
As a result of the increasing popularity of the building, it wasn’t long before further plans were drawn up and approved to expand the studios’ offering and early in 2017, Vinci Construction was appointed to develop Stage 06. Working closely with PRP Architects and their client, isGroup was appointed to assist with developing and delivering the signage strategy – not only for Stage 06 but also to deliver major alterations to the existing external wayfinding scheme to accommodate for continued site expansion.
Some of the main focal points of the signage scheme included two large 3.5m square LED backlit flexface units at high level. These units were faced off using a day and night PVC skin to maximise the visual impact Stage 06. isGroup’s experienced team provided strong technical assistance to Vinci Construction and their structural engineers. isGroup made sure that the appropriate supporting infrastructure was designed into the build process to ensure the external branding was safely and securely installed.
