Taking signage to another level

Taking signage to another level
Widd Signs has completed a five-figure project to install internal and external signage at the soon to open Kings Dock multi-storey car park in Liverpool, which replaces the one destroyed in a fire on New Year’s Eve 2017.

Over a four-month project, which began in June, Widd Signs has designed, manufactured and installed a suite of internal wayfinding signage on each of the car park’s eight floors. It has also created the striking external signage that now runs across the outside of the building.

Construction company Willmott Dixon, which is building the £30m car park in front of the Exhibition Centre on behalf of Liverpool City Council, initially commissioned the company, which has manufacturing bases in both Leeds and St Helens. Widd Signs worked closely with architects Leach Rhodes Walker, who designed the new car park.

The eight-floor, 1450 space facility, which is due to open this Winter, has been fitted with CCTV, electric vehicle charging points, 50 cycle spaces, and a sprinkler system.

Commenting on the project, Phil Bamford, Head of Operations at Widd Signs, said: “As a local company, we’re delighted to have been able to play a part in the latest phase of the regeneration of Kings Dock.

“The new facility provides the waterfront with a car park fit for the future, and we’re proud to have our signage feature in a building that will be seen and used by so many.”

Andy Beale, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon said: “Widd Signs worked with us through all stages of the process, from developing the design to installation and are very happy with the end product.”

Ben Parllaku, project leader at Leach Rhodes Walker Architects, added: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Widd Signs’ team of experts on this waterfront project. The car park is looking great and so is the signage, which is bold, clean and eye-catching.”

Earlier this year, Widd Signs created and installed new interior wayfinding signage at the nearby Mount Pleasant car park on behalf of Liverpool City Council.
