A night-time assignment

A night-time assignment

Preston-based Signs Express (Central Lancs) has successfully completed a night-time assignment at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, which involved putting the finishing touches to the Life Sciences Accelerator building, the stunning £25 million scientific research centre in Daulby Street.

The after midnight operation – necessary as the work was taking place above the main entrance to the building – saw the installation of five sets of built up letters, eight directional signs and seven door signs.

The week-long installation is Sign Express’ fifth large contract with the School of Tropical Medicine and formed part of a joint contract with the school and Vinci Construction.

Matt Rutlidge from Signs Express commented: “This was a difficult night-time installation of built-up letters up to 18 metres high, which necessitated the use of scissor lift access equipment, together with a cherry picker for the above entrance installation,” while Richard Burslem, Facilities Supervisor at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, added: “The service from Signs Express was superb. It provided both guidance and a high level of expertise that was a great asset from the artwork stage through to installation.”
