Your construction site is more than a hole in the ground that is surrounded by a tall fence. It is more than a constant coming and going of skilled workers and architects. In fact, your construction site can be one of the most influential marketing tools you have on your hands – if you have the right signage.
It Starts with Safety
Do not lose your profits because of accidents and mistakes. Safety signs are a huge part of a busy construction site’s setup. It starts with traffic signs that regulate one-way traffic, stops and right-of-way situations. Keeping the large vehicles rolling without incident is crucial. Ensure that workers employed by subcontractors are on the same page as you when it comes to hard-hat zones, first aid stations and eye-washing areas. Caution banners highlight active work zones.
Communicate the Vision
An architect’s rendering of the finished project generates interest. Printed on vinyl and attached to an aluminum substrate, this is the type of marker that is attached to the construction fence. Whether you are building commercial, residential or mixed-use properties, get the buzz going about your project early on. Once the first models are complete, the leasing agents will have the opportunity to start showing the places and get them rented or sold.
Building and Road Signs
When you have taken on the task of building a sub-division or a city block, you need not only building signs that highlight the names of the structures, but post and panel markers that assist with wayfinding in the sub-division. Address numbers are another important part of the package. Road signs govern the flow of traffic and also identify handicap parking spots.
A monument sign is something that is usually installed by a business. When you are in charge of erecting a business complex, it may fall to you to put up the monument marker that identifies the name of the development or the mall. Choose from pre-shaped foam markers or go for the old-fashioned concrete construction. Branding also extends to the façade of office buildings. Dimensional letters made from metal or metal laminate on a foam substrate are usually the preferred choices.
