Yatala Brewery Billboard Project

The Yatala Brewery Billboard Project

Our project management team in QLD recently finished a complete refurbishment of the Yatala Brewery billboard, which included major steel work repairs. We had replaced the skins on the structure a few times over the past 15 years, and each time took note of the steel structure's condition. 

Late last year we were again requested to remove the old skins and replace with new ones, and we inspected the condition of the structure when the skins were to be removed. We found the structure had begun to rust, and the skins were coming loose due to the fixing screws in the rusty structure. This situation meant that we had to immediately repair the structure as it was a matter of safety. 

The refurbishment works took 6 weeks, which is twice as long as usual due to weather conditions, as we could not weld or paint on site if it was raining, and couldn’t fit the skins if it was windy. In total we spent just 5 days on site to get the job done.

SignManager Supports Red Nose Day

This month SignManager is fundraising for Red Nose Day. In Australia, nine children die suddenly and unexpectedly every day. That's over 3,200 families that experience tragedy this every year. Research is needed to find out why, and to help change this number to zero.

The Red Nose charity relies on the generosity of the community to fund their research and support systems, so this month we hosted a morning tea to fundraise and support this worthy cause. We hope to help Red Nose to invest in research, educate new parents and support those affected by the sudden loss of a baby or child.

External Graphics a Welcome Lift For Community Centres

SignManager have completed many refurbishment projects on various sporting and community facilities for the City of Greater Dandenong in recent years. They found that their centres were lacking in warmth and street presence, and wanted to create a look that would be more inviting to the community. We created an external finish using creative colour combinations, formes, shapes and silhouettes. This has given the tired old buildings a welcome breath of fresh air, and has also greatly improved their street presence. An exciting by-product of this bold design is that it has dramatically deterred graffiti, which had been one of their most difficult maintenance issues in the past. Wes Parker from CGD has advised that not one graffiti clean-up has been needed at any of the facilities since the refurbishment.
