Commercial People has learned that two branding companies, Widd Signs and UX Global (UXG) have designed and installed a range of striking external and internal signage, as part of a £7.5m remodelling and refurbishment programme at office building 1 City Square in Leeds.
Signage specialist Widd Signs – which has bases in Leeds and St Helens, worked with fellow Leeds-based digital solutions provider UXG to deliver eye-catching signage at the 108,000sq ft, 11-storey landmark office building.
Installations include an 11ft by 6ft video wall in the main atrium (pictured above), along with various LED-illuminated logos and a digital directory.
Both companies were commissioned by construction specialists Ardmac, who Catella APAM appointed to create a new atrium and entrance, as well as 46,196sq ft of workspace over five floors, with an on-site coffee shop, business lounge, fitness studio and shower and changing facilities. Architecture firm TP Bennett also played a crucial role in the project.
Commenting on the project, Rory Campbell-Pilling, head of operations at Widd Signs, said: “We’re delighted to have supported Ardmac on the refurbishment of what is an incredibly innovative and exciting office environment in the heart of Leeds.
“This turnkey project saw us team up with UXG to design, manufacture and install an array of high-spec signage, providing us with an opportunity to once again showcase our industry-leading capabilities and expertise.”
Established in 1888, Widd Signs provides signage consultancy, design, and production to a range of high-profile businesses, including retailers such as Marks & Spencer, Primark and Schuh.
