A stunning centrepiece

A stunning centrepiece

Facilities Management specialists, Newport Norse commissioned Applelec to create a series of built-up metal letters for the reception area at St. Andrew’s Primary School in Wales.

This was recently refurbished to create a more contemporary and visually striking entrance for the Victorian building, while also providing a calming environment for the pupils.

Accordingly, Applelec used brushed stainless steel to produce a series of 600mm built-up metal letters for the ‘ST. NDREW’S’ section of the new logo and complemented them with a giant freestanding letter ‘A’.

Fitted on top of the magenta ‘A’, the ‘ST’. section of the logo was punctuated with a hollow, 154mm diameter circle, to represent the full stop. The centre of the disc was filled with a flat cut, stainless steel star, which further reflects the school’s ‘learning together, we reach for the stars’ motto. Running the full length of the new reception desk, the ‘NDREW’S’ letters were finished with rounded edges, to ensure the signage was safe for its low-level installation.

Andy Armitage, Applelec’s Head of Signage Sales said: “The positioning of the ST part of the logo meant the lettering was visible from both inside and outside the reception area. To accommodate this, the signage features a double-sided finish and the letter returns are meticulously hand shaped and manipulated to achieve a seamless and precise seal.”

Commenting on the completed project, Andrew Herrington, Newport Norse’s Architectural Designer said: “There was a very tight, six-week time-frame and an efficient turnaround was thus crucial. Happily, thanks to the collaborative effort between Applelec and our regular contractors, this technically challenging signage was completed on time and now provides a stunning centrepiece for the school’s reception area.”
